    Lets hope this DESTROYS the parasitic industrial warfare state, and see us withdraw from our senseless wars and occupations throughout the world. The bubble of all bubbles.

  • Defence cuts are more likely to result in more of our young service personnel being under-resourced. More death and severe injury while the desk-jockeys massage their excel spreadsheets.

  • Not engaging in senseless unwinnable wars for oil, or to fill in for intelligence failures against imaginary foes, is probably the best way to save the lives of service personnel. Defence spending is extraordinarily wasteful: what value does a tank add? What value does a fighter add? A nuclear submarine?

    In the absence of a need to defend the country – meaning its people, and not some nebulous foreign “interests” which always happen to be the business interests of a small minority – these defence “assets” are hugely wasteful liabilities. If we need a stimulus which doesn’t come, incredibly, from yet more borrowing – perhaps these would be a good source of the funds to redistribute in a better fashion?
