Defence Budget Woes

Yet again, we read misleading articles about the Defence budget in the news today.  We are not spending 2% of GDP on our Armed Forces as reported in many newspapers and media outlets.  A huge amount of Defence money has been siphoned into the domestic security silo.

As a result, our soldiers, sailors and air-people are suffering from a lack of modern equipment and realistic training.  This reduces morale, harms retention, alarms our Allies and supports our adversaries.

See Chapter 2 of Belfast to Benghazi for the last time that a Government properly supported the Armed Forces.
