  3. You can add almost £400 for diesel, £200 for AA batteries and about £1100 worth of uniforms to that list.

    And that's just the things I can remember nicking from my last regiment.

  7. You theiving bastards, give it back.

    Mind you, pity Andrew and the Crabs. Somebody's nicked their only aircradt carrier, all the maritime patrol aircraft and every last Harrier.

    Oh no. That was the government. OK lads, as you were, you've not done nearly as much harm to out national defence as HMG.
     
  8. Of course, for a journo, a headline that 0.0015% of the annual Defence budget can't be accounted for doesn't have the same ring though, does it?

  9. That stuff I can understand knicking, from a theiving bastards point of view, but a shed door?!

    Why? And how did the crafty bandit manage to get that up his jumper?
     


  10. Worked on a shopping mall many years ago.... paint, tiles and adhesive, plumbing gear......


    If I'd put some racks of crimplene frocks in the house you would have sworn you were in Littlewoods
     
  11. £500,000? Most govt depts can waste that on the wrong kind of chair. It doesn't amount to a hill of beans in proper govt pilfering. Most MPs can do that as an individual effort.

    Must try harder.
     
  12. Now that's Defence Procurement.

    Doing it with a finger or two,eyes scrunched a bit near the screen, trying to make sure I don't make a mess or mistake in the process.
