DT says defence budget down 25% under NuLabour

Just reading the DT Opinion, and it points out that defence spending had dropped by 25% since NuLabour got in.

That's a massive drop. Things must be getting bad. You see references to large amounts of our helicopters being unserviceable. Equipment denied to front line troops etc....

If NuLabour wants to fight all these wars they must provide the resources. ( As an aside you never hear them talk about 'investing' in the armed forces. That's one of the few things they will call spending.)

Anyway it looks shocking - *25% , in wartime !*
