Re: RAF Pilot to Fly AirForce One

Much of what is opined on in UKDJ needs to be double checked. Also, re-hashed content and sensationalism is part of their diet.

Re: And the 0.1% majority costs $6.46 billion for aircraft

Governments, majorities and voting systems:- You cannot compare apples with oranges and then come out with a unitary answer. The British and the Swiss have very different systems of government, public consultation and voting processes. In order to understand it, you have to grasp the basics of the B...

Re: Storm Clouds Gather Over F-35B Lightning As United Kingdom Prepares Defense Review

@TonyO
I am in broad agreement with your sentiments, my only ancillary comment would be that the current government is far more palatable than the alternative that faced us in the December 2019 elections.

As will the huge amounts spent/lost/wasted on Brexit force budget cuts.
Are you still stuck on an issue that was settled years ago? Are you still struggling to understand the democratic will of the people? Move on mate, it's almost 2021!

@Tooks I see your Avatar says Lincolnshireville? :S. Hmm ... :roll: And then you want a "reasoned debate" with exclusions! You say "without resorting to the ‘It’s PC gone mad’ line?" The first sign of a lost debate is when a person sets pre-conditions to a debate. It's akin to telling Guy Gibson you...

Re: RAF changed Dog grave wording

History must always be seen in the context of the time in which it took place; event and date cannot be divorced, neither can spoken language and timeline. I will always refer to the dog by its given name N.gg.r and if you have not matured whereby you grasp my opening sentence, too bad. I care nothi...

Re: Army, Navy, RAF severe cuts

Concerning the space program, and ultimately its use in the defence sector, did I read UK Government has just invested in a share of a failed satellite launch company alongside an Indian company, rather than admit failure and join the European Galileo system.

Re: Army, Navy, RAF severe cuts

Maybe if we stopped funding certain countries in the first place who couldn't give a crap about their own people, then maybe we would not have to keep making defence cuts here & there!! That's a very isolationist view, the money sent to other countries in the form of aid, also helps to reduce the r...

Re: Army, Navy, RAF severe cuts

I guess the issue is you get to a critical mass which is where I believe we are now, and below that it becomes impossible to maintain (deployed/combat) operations long term such as Syria, Afghanistan, even for a small number of assets. The Tornado force was stretched even with a handful on Op Shade...
