    Just to liven things up a bit:

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics...defence-review

    The US defence secretary, James Mattis, in a letter to his UK counterpart, Gavin Williamson, hinted that the UK’s close relationship with the US on defence matters could be undermined unless it did more. If not, it could end up being supplanted by France.

    A Whitehall source said the modernising defence review, on which work began a year ago, had fallen foul of a stand-off between May, the chancellor, Philip Hammond, and Williamson. Talks over the past fortnight have failed to resolve differences over Williamson’s push for billions more in defence spending.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    So Trump wants NATO to spend more, then a few days later is meeting Putin who is already sensitive about NATO countries near Russia's border. Should go well.

    Ah got it, Trump is going to invite Russia to join NATO.

    Though with the way Turkey is regressing into an Islamic fundamentalist dictatorship, maybe this isn't so far fetched after all, if the USA and Russia see Islamic extremist states (including Iran) as the new enemy.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Not sure 40 billion will cover it.
