SDSR Lost opportunity for radical rethink?

Discussion in 'Strategic Defence & Spending Review (SDSR)' started by TheBigUn, Oct 29, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. BBC News - Defence review was 'lost opportunity', experts warn

    I wonder who these 2,000 defence experts are? Has anyone completed a survey for RUSI recently?
  2. I suggest that you do not need to be holding a gun to be a defence expert. Indeed, I sometimes believe that we military are rather introspective about our profession, preferring to retain what we have than look at the problem from a more dispassionate view point. And I too, suggest that an opportunity has been missed here, through intense senior officer lobbying to retain and score points over the other two services.
