|I have heard George Osbourne and Lian Fox proudly declaring in the last few days that we have the 4th biggest defence budget in the entire world.
How sick is that! We are the 21st biggest poulation, 21st in terms of average income, 16th in health expenditure and an appalling 45th in education spending. I wonder how much we would save if we reduced defence spending to the level of the 21st defence spenders!!
