Defensive logic

"We are building 2 aircraft carriers, but no planes for them to carry."

"The only wars we can envisage the UK entering into alone are war with Spain over Gibraltar and war with Argentina over the Falklands."
"We did not foresee 9/11."
"Spending is being increased by £650m to counter infiltration of the Govt's secrets."
"A zoom lens though the window of Danny Alexander's car discovered the details of the Govt's plan to cut public sector jobs."

Poor Danny Alexander. Or to put it another way. Israel employs 900 civil servants to manage a military procurement budget of $9 billion. The UK employs 23,000 to manage a directly comparable $10 billion spend. Jobs for the boys ?

Yes we are reqally really bad at this sort of thing. In Glasgow there used to be a man and 4 assistants who oversaw all hospital/school/ etc cleaning. Now EACH department has a staff of 32 Chiefs - with all the concomitant Injuns. Of course, noone is prepared to tell the truth - it was always gerrymandering of the worst kind.
