Sounds like the CDT team would have a field day in parliament.
HMS Cumberland (heading home to become coke cans and razors) it seemed was luckily in the right place at the right time and the 2 C-130s used probably had some affect on the air bridge to Afghanistan or on training such as jumps courses etc from taking place.
Yeah the SDSR is really going to benefit the forces.................
I will own up to having believed this government would do the right thing. I was wrong. Fox is basically a good chap and he has a gun pressed firmly into his back whenever he talks publicly. I dont think he is happy with anything he is being asked to do but has made the call he can do more good as an inside advocate rather than a backbencher.
Its just a publicity stunt really. We're not gonna have as much resources as we should, for 10 whole years. In many books, so to speak, that is just no good. We are really vulnerable now. I quote from the article ' An island nation like Britain, with so many interests in so many parts of the world 92 per cent of trade moving by sea'. Doesn't that tell us we need an adequate navy to protect our interests and our trade. The trade feeds the people and keeps us running as a country. Does the government not think that is a priority? This government has not made good on their promises.
