Good old Tories, they never let you down. On the day we ‘celebrate’ Armed Forces Day we discover that the Tories have found again their historic task, that of gutting the Armed Forces. Not content with shredding the Royal Navy of any serious capability, they’ve now moved on to the British Army.
The Government will outline next Thursday which units will be cut or merged under the Future Force 2020 proposals as the Army shrinks to 82,000 men, its lowest level since the Napoleonic Wars [...]
The plans put forward by Lt Gen Nick Carter will be the biggest change to the Army since 1904.
Well done Tories, I knew you’d be back on form before long. (Memo to Tory voters: there’s still time to shoot yourselves in the head before the next general Election.)
The good news is that future Tory governments won’t be chopping off enormous bits of the Armed Forces. The bad news is there won’t be anything to chop.
