We need to start punching at the correct weight for our standing in the world.....which is not what we are doing at the moment, says a new study by the IPPR http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/8124108.stm And some more names involved This report is really going to stir things up and will not, simply because of the personalities involved, be easier ignored. I think broadly from the very small amount of info put out in the BBC site, that the report is realistic and has merit. People have already talked about the need for a new stratigic review. I wonder how radical the next one will be. Face it - the Forces are an easy target in these days of shrinking budgets. This report can justify a lot of change.
