Welcome to Navy Net, the UNofficial RN community
Over the past few weeks I have come to the conclusion that the majority of this forum is consists of Old Boys and Pre-joiners.
If you look over to Arrse, there are many threads that cover current topics and issues regarding the Army. When a serving member starts a thread with a question about a current issue, most replies consist of "back in my day" and the usual drivel associated with pre 80's Navy.
Also the current trend of over Moding seems to have pissed a few off, I remember when this forum was a good place to visit for a laugh or reading good buzzes.
I've just read a report that states UK defence spending is just under 2% of GDP & could drop as low as 1.5% post 2020 & there's no legislation in place that guarantees any minimum amount/%.
Yet legislation has just been passed at the whim of the coalition in cohorts with the Labour party to guarantee 0.7% minimum of GDP to be given away in overseas aid.
Am I just thick, what am I missing?
