Last quote by Julian Lewis

I would be delighted if this is the first indication that we might see 3 per cent spending on defence. As recently as 1996, the year before Tony Blair became Prime Minister, 3 per cent was the defence spend, so it is a perfectly reasonable suggestion. What might happen is that the foreign aid budget would fall and some of that would be released to the defence budget. We are overspending on aid anyway, so there ought to be reductions. We keep hearing stories about desperate bureaucrats trying to find ways of spending a fixed sum of money they are obliged to dispose of.feedback

Once stories get out there that a missile may have failed, isn't it better to be quite frank about it? Especially if it has no strategic significance?” said Julian Lewis on this article: UK PM May criticised for handling of Trident test malfunction report.
