  1. Head of the RAF calls for more staff

    A blatant attempt to divert attention away from the fact that the RAF have for decades p*ssed money away on aircraft whose main purpose is to perpetuate the fast-jet master race (of which CAS is by definition the principal beneficiary) and let useful but unsexy capabilities such as NIMROD, TRISTAR, SH etc etc simply wither on the vine.

    Is the same CAS who not so long ago (in one of the myriad MoD in-house journals) was saying that the RAF was about the right size but still had some re-balancing to do? That was obviously before someone suggested that he ought to be held personally accountable for the deaths of 14 of his airmen.
