  1. http://www.ukpublicspending.co.uk/past_spending Some idea how far defence spending has fallen since 1900.
  2. I'd agree the armed forces are no where near funded enough for what they are asked to do. But your assessment of what we have is a little harsh. Ground strike capacity and capabilities are certainly better than you suggest. The typhoon and tornadoes do a good job with what they have. Not sure a decision has been made on the aircraft carriers. But sure we need to make better spending decisions with what we have , look at what happened with Nimrod for example. It's not a vote winner even when the army announced they had to cut numbers to an all time low. Nothing will change .
  3. Like pouring money down the drain .
  4. I'd say a combination of both , ecb pitch inspectors give the counties the willys. Better to have a huge scoring draw than too much turn and lose points. That in itself leads to less spinners playing and bowling.
  5. As others have said he isn't a leader. It's isn't likely he could make much happen even if he led a Labour party to power it would spend more time fighting itself than the business of government. Nobody vaguely competent in the PLP supports Corbyn, his cabinet and staff would be filled with sycophants . The deluded who follow him to the ends of the earth are a total turn off to the middle of the road voters , those who actually win elections. He is best suited to the backbench stimulating debate without doing too much damage.
  6. Pretty disappointing result , much for Ned to ponder.
  7. On paper they have a good team , however Bell and Trott should be doing a lot better look shot.
  8. Not sure I seem to think that ls what used to happen maybe it has changed.
  9. Isn't the table bit done direct from the rfl ?
  10. Coad looks are real find , hopefully the rain stays away long enough to take the last wicket.
  11. That's a little unfair, very few people will see how much money there is from the football pitches or where it goes or how much money is needed to keep the club going each year. Difficult to challenge without knowing any facts. Though for the avoidance of doubt I'm not suggesting mark is profiteering at all.
  12. No chance, Rams 8 - Batley 38
  13. Yes I've read the responses.
  14. It's on Wakefield councils website why it didn't count , they say it couldn't legally be part of the Newmarket development. Now I hope Wakefield come out of this well but that is very slack not to check if not bordering on incompetent. If I thought the local council leader was against me , the council did nothing to help , had tried to move stadiums for the last 20 years , knew that without it could put the clubs SL status in doubt and the club itself then I would have had someone double check everything.
