Defence company Babcock yesterday confirmed a £170 million, five year contract to maintain facilities at 12 British forces bases in Germany.
British forces are of course handily placed in west Germany in case the Red Army should launch a quickfire attack from the east. Oh wait - the Cold War ended 20 years ago, and the last Soviet soldier left Germany in 1994. Sadly no one seems to have told the Rupert's who run the British Army.
Worse still, no one seems to have told the Con-Dems, who are happily writing cheques for this nonsense, whilst at the same time cutting essential services at home. All in it together? Do me a favour.
