I think Britain has potentially very serious enemies in Europe - definitely. Germany rising again militarily is of great concern. Sharing resources
with France is a mistake for many many reasons.
We cannot rely on America - we have been on our own in two world wars for many years before America intervened - imagine if we relied on her umbrella
then - we would all be speaking German - it may happen anyway, by default.
We need a strong military.
One thing I would recommend is that you research the defence of these Isles down through the ages... it might surprise you. A little look at the
strategy known as Defence in depth might help you view this somewhat differently.
Besides, always remember most of us have a blue peter badge in something... and we all know you can create just about anything with a toilet roll and
a bit of sticky tape... the Sten Gun is a great example of that thought process...
While the French where testing PAMMS from their warships, we on the other hand had Longbow.. an old barge converted into an Anti-Air platform, just
imagine a few Longbows around our shores with multiple sylvers of block 2 Aster anti-ballistic missiles, and we would have a pretty effective air
But I honestly don't think it would come to that.. we are where the cash is flowing to at the moment.. plans afoot for the worlds largest indoor aqua
park in Sussex and a competitor to Disneyland Paris in Kent.. both show massive investment into the UK.. amongst many projects that run along the
lines of the scale of the shard..
In my opinion no one invests money in recreational facilities in a potential war zone, well, not unless they where planning on offering *cough*
professional recreational services for the armed forces
which I assume in this day and age would get sponsorship from Durex
