comrades! The latest news today about a program I am working on. Mostly it will be for the pongos but the Royals are in the frame to get some... This bit of kit is at metal cutting and prototype stage. We've been told that the military cannot afford to do the original 127 battlefield tests, needed to prove out reliability etc. They are now doing... wait for it... 4!!! Yes 4. So how are they going to cover the missing 123 odd tests. Simple, they will get a piece of paper and just do a graph. So thats all alright then. They are also taking it for some "rigourous testing" into Afghanistan. What kind of cock decides to slash a program and then throw it straight into the frontline? The thing is, the program will not be ready. Things will go wrong. And peoples lifes will be at risk.
