I wonder, is it just me or does anybody else find this rather distasteful?
It seems nothing is sacred anymore and everything has a price, and money is welcome from anyone.
That they would change the name to "honour" a dodgy Middle Eastern dictator after a bung is disgusting enough, but it appears that this is not the
first such deal as they also took a £15Million bung to fund a new block at the military site.
Of course, it's all cosying up to those with the money, who of course are also buying military equipment from us and having their military officers
trained here. However, changing the name that honours our own war dead in favour of some rich dictator is a step way too far, as I would hope many
Money talks as always and I find it even more disgusting that top brass would allow such a thing to happen, but of course most of them are politicized
these days too and will do whatever it takes to get a peerage and a gong come retirement time, along with a cushy consultancy position and middleman
status pimping for the rich dictators they cosied up to on the taxpayer payroll.
