Defence secretary Gavin Williamson has reportedly demanded an extra £20bn for the armed forces – or threatened to bring down Theresa May’s government.

 

“I made her, and I can break her,” the former chief whip is said to have boasted.

The Government sees its first duty as defending The Government

(They call it 'defending the country' to try and make everyone think it includes them *-) )

So last time I looked Britain had the highest military spending in Europe.

Is it necessary to spend that much to defend HM Government?

Well I guess if you are Her Unelected Majesty the Queen with a string of palaces you have got a lot to lose from a change of Government.

At the other extreme if you are sleeping rough and being urinated on https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-38386088 you might think HM Forces are not defending you very well, have nothing to lose from a change of Government, and might prefer the extra £20 billion spent on night shelters and foodbanks?
