Only an hour ago I said:
"With people like Williamson in charge, the UK is the rogue state."
60 mins later...
Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson is reportedly to say in a speech later today:
"Brexit has brought us to a great moment in our history. A moment when we must strengthen our global presence, enhance our lethality and increase our mass."
"Enhance our lethality"?
The UK is the rogue state.
@fitheach Is “increasing our mass” a reference to deep-fried snickers bars? 🤪
In the US they often use the classification "doves" or "hawks". Willimson seems to be portraying himself as the latter.
The awful thing is being a hawk often leads Western countries to go and bomb some defenceless people somewhere.
@fitheach I'm sure all of this blather about "lethality" will not help at all in discussions with the EU neighbors.
I'm sure there will be some major side-eye from the French.
I'm not so sure, Macron has been sounding very militaristic recently.
Generalistic and moderated instance.
