The nature of warfare has changed drastically since the days of the trenches, these days it's all about air power, nuclear power and processing power.

Cutting the British forces is criminal.
Mind you the way they are treated means people don't want to join anyway.
Starmer does not give a damn about it only that its a points scoring exercise for him. Typical labour worm
Typical scum comment.
I voted LD by the way :)

Just one of the reasons you will win next GE easily

Sixteen months ago Johnson insisted:

"We will not be cutting our armed services in any form - we will be maintaining the size of our armed services."

Our so-called "free press" will not hold him to account for this bare-faced lie because they are dishonest lackeys, just like him.

And it's a lie about our security, so it's a very dangerous lie.
cutting back the army but expanding the navy is not cutting back its called balancing the requirements of the armed forces, idiot! Removed

Can anyone name the weak labour front bench, who is any good?
Nope nobody can
Ha ha ha
But the Conservative front bench is easy. There's the nasty bully one that Johnson didn't have the stones to sack, the corrupt one that saved the property developers £40 million tax for giving a donation bung, the incompetent one who messed up schools who was sacked from defence for leaking top secret information, the Brexity one who hadn't got a clue about freight moving through Dover ...

Mandelson is right Starmer you should have had a defence plan, and stop living on 2019 policies, otherwise your history as a party

So you have nothing to say about the PM breaking his promise not to reduce the size of the Army? Just insulting another poster? How weak and cowardly.

Your comment is pathetic really
Thanks for showing us the clear and obvious wisdom of your common Brexiteer. Really contributed much to the conversation didn't you?

Useless sod. Nothing arcangel stated was wrong.

Meant to say Devout Tory instead of Brexiteer, but oh well. Two side of the same coin.
Surely lets be fair, the word 'mistakes' when using hindsight to attack the Govts performamce is NOT the right word to use in that Covid was unprecedented & nobody knew the best way of handling the virus, even clever clog pundits & yesterdays politician's & it was all a question of guess work & trial & error for sure " lessons have been learnt" & time for any enquiry.

The time for a public enquiry under the auspices of a senior judge is right now, while the events are relatively fresh in peoples' minds.

That's great coming from Starmer. How many of his ten pledges that he promised in the Labour leadership contest has he ditched so far. Another Tory in a red cloak.
send for Handgel nandy and Daffy Dodds that will guarantee tory power for years Removed

Not to the UK electorate! Or to put it in a real world scenario for you...... if you lied to your employer (the voters) continually, you wouldn't be surprised to be dismissed! However, in 'Tory World', you love being lied to, every single day! ??

Strong defences are not war-mongering.
Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria.
Our Parliament is full of sociopaths who chose to bomb, invade and disrupt in recent decades.
