Troops 'left with outdated kit'.
The House of Commons' Public Accounts Committee have issued a report saying that delays in defence projects have left front-line troops in Afghanistan with almost obsolete equipment.
To be fair that's nothing new, this picture is of a Rolls Royce Armoured Car in the western desert in 1940, it first came into British Army service in 1914.
Who is the Minister for defence equipment? It's our old friend Quentin Davies. I would like to lay all the blame at his door (trust me I really would) but the inability to buy on behalf of the forces knows no political boundaries.
Standard defence procurement seems to deliver the wrong kit, late and over budget, the real irony is that we seem to get it right when we're in a rush.
Here's an idea! Why not just buy everything in a rush?
