Notwithstanding this utter financial quagmire our Dave obviously is as much in awe of a US President as his two predecessors. We are to pay billions of borrowed pounds to fund a carrier fleet for US jets. Presumably we will lease or pay extra for those and probably their crews. That or The EU combined force will fly their pirate flag from the mast.
Then we announce, after Obummer has departed, we are going to up the ante in Libya with Apache helicopters. You can bet Dave was told "I can't be seen doing this but you can, can't you?" and the lovesick puppy licked his master's hand, wagged his little tail and obliged. No suggestion of affording it, of course. Cuts, what cuts. These idiots are spending every bit as recklessly as the last lot. No doubt ably supported by their Sir Humphreys and water tight and very costly contracts with mates in the know. Sickening stupidity and so pointless. Gaddafi looks pretty secure so far. I don't see what a couple of choppers will do, other than bomb and machine gun the hell out of the innocent. What a shambles we have for a Government, still.
