In times of great need, the blitz spirit returns. While Britain is not under direct threat, an attack on the military is an attack on the general population, aside our minor squabbles we English, Scottish, Welsh and N.Irish are brothers in arms and it was this which forged an empire. A famous quote comes to mind that those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it...corruption is rife in parliament.
What we need is to remove these snakes for treason and deceit against the state....it takes a lot for the British public to get angry but when we are angry...we are a force to be reckoned with no matter what the odds. We are the United Kingdom, we are represented by parliament and currently parliament is NOT representing us at all not ONE bit. This could be our chance, we may never have another one like it.
Dairy crisis meeting, July 5 2012On Thursday July 5, the NFU chaired a meeting of leaders from NFU Scotland, NFU Cymru, Tenant Farmers Association (TFA) and Farmers for Action, who came together in Gloucestershire in an industry show of strength after a catastrophic three months for the sector.
The representatives called for all milk price cuts imposed on farmers since April 1 to be restored by August 1.
The unions have also called on farmers to show their strength of feeling by turning out in force at a crisis summit in London on Wednesday, leaving retailers, MPs, processors and the public in no doubt about the scale of the problem.

This is the problem with the current form of protest in the UK, everyone has their own little protest or strike on Separate days and it can appear that people are only defending their own conditions, when it should be about defending everyones conditions. The police have their own separate protest, as do the Doctors, the nurses and teachers and now the Army. It would be far more effective if they all joined together for one day. They share the same concerns, just in different circumstances.

The capabilities of the British military have already been seriously downgraded with the lack of any operational aircraft carriers.
their are not enough transport aircraft to send reinforcements,

Indeed. I was one of them. I'm the type of person who believes we need soldiers not wars. Kind of hypocritical maybe, but soldiers should be here to protect us. Not fighting some lost cause in a desert, on the actions of the greedy cabal.
