Not to mention that to do so would contravene European law (at last - one that I can think might be useful if it gets that cnut to resign!) where any contract with a value of over £150,000 has to go to tender for at least 15 weeks!

An interesting issue in the US is the Berry Amendment insisting that the DoD (US MoD equiv) buys primary items from US sources.

So we select US made aircraft for commercial reasons to the potential detriment of UK PLC jobs and they refuse access to US markets to us Johnnie Foreigners. They are even trying to eliminate the joint aspect of the JOINT Strike Fighter.

The US Government has always been pro-free trade but the reality is that the Texas senators don't want cheap foreign oil, the Colorado senators cheap foreign ski's and the Nevada senators don't want cheap foreign...... errmmmm... sand.

The political system allows individuals to add amendments to bills hence how all the crazy stuff gets through like "10% less basic tax for billionaires if they have public golf courses in their backgardens"...."in Louisiana" to a Bill on renewable clean electricity.
