Kier Starmer would cut our defences and increase foreign aid rather than spending on UK needs.
Got a source for that claim or did you just pull it out of your ass like most of what else you say? Removed

Starmer has:
consistently voted against use of UK military forces in combat operations overseas.
consistently voted against military action against ISIS
hypocritically voted against investigations into the Iraq

Really. The BBC have a comments section on this when women are being murdered by the police?

Laughable.

If it's about UK security then we should sell the £10billion of aircraft carriers that can be sunk with a couple of £1million Chinese or Russian ASM. Use this money for better IFV for the army and a proper air defence system that's not bases around a couple of destroyers anchored in the Thames.

If we didn't waste money on the work shy, the feckless or malingerers we could have an army three times the size it is now with all the missiles the boffins could throw at it!!!

It is high time we rid ourselves of the marxist monstrosities that are dragging the UK down and invested money in our security!!!

No more NHS or welfare state!!

There are some serious public relations issues influencing recruitment into Infantry Btns. So the over recruited Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (recruiting from Newcastle, Birmingham, Manchester and London) lost a Btn from 2 to 1 whilst Scotland, with a far smaller population has 5 and a half Btns.
Can not touch the Scottish Regiments because Krankie will go off on her normal anti English it is all Westminster fault routine Removed

'A land fit for heroes'
The only time we came close was after WW2 with the creation of the NHS
Now we have the insult of asking our Armed Forces to live in privatised slum barracks whilst we send redundancy notices to them on the front line
The idea that the cheap and nasty Tory party care a jot about them is a sick joke

I remember the day after scores of Yemeni kids were slaughtered by the vile Saudi dictatorship and May was questioned about continuing to arm that regime.
Her reply? "Well, we have enormous commercial interests in Saudi Arabia".
Sums it up.

The best way to defend ourselves better is for us and other allies to stop trading with countries whose regimes are of concern. They can’t shore up their military if we’re not giving them the money needed to build military capabilities in the first place.
