Britain must retain it's war fighting role -Blair

Blair's warning for Brown!

In an article in today's Times, Prime Minister Tony Blair makes the call for our defence spending to be maintained or increased. In a lecture defending his policy of interventionism, the Prime Minister said that the new challenges from worldwide terrorism required new commitments to be made to the Forces.

I find this a bit rich coming from the bloke who is prepared to send our boys to Basra without body armour, working radios, and SA80 rifles that jam in the sand, notwithstanding the latest cuts to the Royal Navy that will see it shrink below the capacity of the Dutch Coastal Defence Force!
