    Well, that is what happens when you read the Independent Tabloid.

    Read a newspaper that tells you how it is. The Sun. News in Briefs, all you need for a daily intake of news.
  3. Or log on to ARRSE. If we don't know, we'll guess. Obviously we'll say that's what everyone else is doing anyway!

  4. We shouldn't complain, I think it's perfectly proper that every single member of the RAF gets their own personal Eurofighter....
  5. Something tells me we do not spend more than the Chinese.

    Of that £40Bn, £39Bn goes to consultants and civil servants.
  6. 40 Billion isn't a lot. I read somewhere that BT spends 15 billion on tools, cable and vans a year! Let alone wages, pensions etc.
