Okay... here goes... you've been plucked from obscurity and given the best part of a billion pounds to spend. Now... does it goes on MoD main building or not.

If not please state what your unit would spend it on... and why

(let's try to keep answers to the legally or or at least morally acceptable. Yes MDN - that includes you :) )

How about we start at the basics. Uniform that lasts perhaps?

Correct force protection equipment for operations .......... although i suspect that will upset the bean counters and tardy knockoff kit salemen....

Force Protection. Better BA, Better ECM etc.

Better Light role vehicles (get rid of snatch and replace with a wheeled apc that beats Saxon into a cocked hat - not an equipment guru I am sure people will link suitable alternatives).

Better accomodation for Singlies and Pads.

And I think I broke through the One billion Barrier long ago.

Erm - Can I have some more dosh?

Proper Military hospitals? Chartered airliners to fly everyone home? The list could go on and on...

You're angling for one of those chairs aren't you... :)

I'd make the worlds biggest fridge magnet then smear it in muesli, then spend the rest of the budget on having the Red Arrows fly over it over and over until the money's gone.

Of course I'd leave 79p left over for a packet of Viennese whirls..... just for me

Tis easy - 100k in my back pocket cos Im the boss and 10 k for my mates cos Im a good lad like that - 100 k for research into taliban heat seeking bullets and another 100k to train up pack dogs to hunt them down. Finally 500k for a wembley concert inviting all armed forces to a urine up and whats left will go on building a massive church with a * off big bell next to that Mosque in London. Now thats money well spent !!! ;-)
Caspian - it was £746 "million"... by my calculations you've still got the best part of £745m+ to go....

Pay for a fun weekend at Alton Towers, with accom and food (it would have to be burgers and chips)thrown in for all holders of an MOD 90

How about using it to pay for a study by a contractor. Any topic will do.

True indeed :) Do you think the neighbours might NIMBY it?

Personally, I'd invest it in "chairs designed to relieve the long term cost to te taxpayer of fittings and furnishings to Main Building, thus providing over the life of the facility the best possible value for money for the taxpayer when considered as a whole".

What do you mean I've been beaten to it? Sod it, then, I'd provide flights back from Iraqistan and the world's largest p*ssup at Brize waiting for touchdown. Yeah I know the p*ssing-it-up-the-wall thing is old hat for MoD, but hey.
