Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    At least Liam Fox seems to have the right idea

     
  2. Nice to see this phrase added on the end for once.

    The government seem to forget that on April 1st 1982 we did not know the Argentinians would invade, on September 10th 2001 we did not know that 19 terrorists would change the foreign policy priorities of the world for the next decade.

    They are obsessed with today and care not one jot about tomorrow and the next day - the sooner these incompetents are shown the door the sooner the process of putting UK defence back on track can start!
     
  3. To play devils advocate slightly - you think the Tories will be any better? If you look into history then you'll see that it is in fact they that presided over most of the major cuts to the armed forces since 1900, and regardless of how well Liam Fox turns a soundbite in opposition, it won't be him that makes the decisions if they get into power. It'll still be an Afghan focus, with all the associated 'last war itis' that goes with it.

    Cynical? Maybe
     
  4. Mr whizzbang is right, Ive got my doubts about the tories.
