UK defence cuts

#1 Post by UKquest »

The newly elected Coalition party will have a strategic defence review this year. Defence secretary Liam fox has already stated there will be defence cuts. With the massive UK deficit how deep do you think the UK defence budget will be cut?

Cuts in the TA regional TA moved into National units, cut of training days down to 19 across the board.
Agree about Carriers being delayed,
Cuts in manpower from natural wastage.
(time served redundancies, losing the sick lame and lazy)
Cuts from top echelon hopefully
Possibly even a pay freeze across the board

I wonder if they would cut some of the 83,000 civil servants in the MoD as it almost equals the army
