‘Actual threat’ armed forces ‘will likely be stripped again even additional’ – Sir Keir Starmer

Sir Keir Starmer has warned that the federal government’s defence spending plans posed “a really actual threat” that the armed forces will likely be “stripped again even additional”.

He was talking after the federal government mentioned it could reverse plans to scale back its stockpile of nuclear weapons by the center of the last decade, as a part of a international coverage overhaul.

Outlining the technique to MPs, Boris Johnson mentioned after Brexit the UK must “relearn the artwork” of competing in opposition to international locations with “opposing values”.

Labour chief Sir Keir Starmer accused the Conservatives of overseeing an “period of retreat,” with armed forces cuts “yearly for the final decade”.
