It would appear the RAF is playing harball in the PR game. No criticism implied, just a shame that the best option they have is embarrasing the government into paying the bills.
Perhaps the RN should try the same game
Whatever game the RAF is 'playing' it galling in the extreme to hear the failed 'loopy leftie' Hodge exclaiming that the cannibalisation of Typhoons is a shocking waste of money!
This harridan, in the same league of unpleasantness as Harman, Hewitt and Hain, should remember who imposed the spending strictures on the RAF in the first place. I refer of course to the inept oaf Brown - saviour of the world: destroyer of Great Britain.
