Telegraph: "MoD wasting billions through incompetence"

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:

  1. Must be a slow news day. Talk about stating the obvious! Apparently the sun rose this morning and set a bit later on too.
  2. Well scrap the RAF then!!!! Sorry, just saw the title did not read the link.
  3. A Rum Ration member was heard to say the 2.5 billion wasted tax payers money is bog all compared to the billions wasted on the malingering dole scroungers this country has developed.

    £170 billion per annum. MoD's waste would keep Karen Matthews and her ilk in tabs and vodka for a year.
  5. it has gone up to an unbelievable 228 billion now, all so they can squander it on gaurdianista wages and let poor little lids like "baby p" die in vein! :x
  6. I find the wording and emphasis rather irritating. The MoD does waste money but probably no more than any other modern large organisation. The root of most of this “waste†is that great British institution, HM Treasury. If they funded programmes properly and didn’t get so fixated on shuffling money in the first 3 years, programmes wouldn’t “slipâ€. Re-profiling of commitment is the prime source of increased “overheadsâ€. Funny how the sour faced Treasury bean counters never make the headlines; just their results.

    That should have read, 'wouldn't keep Karen Matthews and her ilk in tabs and vodka for a week'.
