UK is no longer a World Military Power and it's time this was admitted.

Politicians see 'The Military" as just another pawn in their plaground if they get broke then so what, who cares, certinly not the great British unwashed who vote only on Mogage rates and other critical matters.
One whole Arrier, bet Churchills rotating in his grave, 10,000 RPM +.
1 extra harrier didn't we used to have squadron's of the damm things?? not that the military actually needs more funding and more infantry battalions!! Sorry i forgot we're "stretched not over stretched"
