No, its clear, they are going to continue dropping the standing army and expecting the reservists to somehow increase by 10,000 people even though its gone up like 12 in a couple years, lol.

The only thing thats still uncertain is if they will buy enough F-35s in the end for 2 carriers or 1 or even enough for the RAF and RN not to share them, otherwise, costcutters.

Invade a small country, perhaps Belgium
A brilliant plan from the dirtiest euro-hippie: get US players to pay me for a game that I then show them how much their military sucks so I can feel better about being a communist.

The whole RAF/RN problem the F-35 has caused is so idiotic in my mind, just pool everything together in one big group of operational aircraft.

A carrier with 1/2 or less than 1/2 its compliment of aircraft is a bit daft to have.

Let's not forget the entire two carrier debacle. Two carriers, half of one compliment. Brilliant planning right there.

If the tories didnt attempt their ignorant "hack n slash" at cost cutting, we would have not wasted a couple billion and would be able to buy a few more planes, iirc the B varient is set to cost just over £108 million/cheaper than eurofighter now with costs coming down even more? They could revisit it down the road and consider buying more, though flying cost is damn high.

Defacing war memorials is so disrespectful, Its like dancing on someones grave you don't do it. I think its despicable.

Should be ignored and have usual punishment towards them, what they want is to be talked about, ignore them and show them that crap wont get them in the news.

But, we live in sensationalist Britain, so it will be front pages all over leading to more of it most likely.


Also, its a shame Cammy is such a dick when it comes to so much of the government system, if he wasnt cutting things vitally needed for tax cuts for the top buddies of his lot (ie fellow rich people) would be alright, sadly.

Well, i am looking forward to extentions to tax cuts for me i guess(ie the first £10k dont pay tax going up apparently).
