Telegraph: "Liam Fox: Libya Crisis Shows Why We're Right On Defence Reform"

Scouse, how on earth can you deride this mans knowledge of the Armed Forces?
He was a Civilian Army Medical Practitioner and also worked for that erstwhile paramilitary organisation St John's Ambulance. Only last week another GP David Owen (Lib Dem) stated in a radio 4 interview that we were ok operating ships off Libya as the Americans had a carrier there!
Perhaps the answer to the Defence Question/policy for this country is to get all potential doctors to have a year of their training dedicated to Defence. Or simply rely on the advice of three Chiefs of Staff. Know where my money is.

Coming from a Defence Secretary who is happily presiding over the biggest defence cuts in years, I find it amazing that he can try and claim any credit for the efforts of the boys in uniform.What a James Hunt.

What planet does he live on? Cuts make us more able to respond to various threats?

I did love the bit of 'Blame the previous govt' bit also.
To be fair Labour did screw not just the forces, but the entire UK.

Although this government do seem to be trying their hardest to equal that :angry4:
