MoD spends billions on consultants

We now know why our military doesn’t have the correct equipment, is badly needing helicopters and why our government needs to close a number of embassies.

It’s all because they have spent £2.3 billion on consultants since Labour came to power. They have been consulted on management, marketing, public relations, the environment, recruitment, IT and human resources. I don’t know why they would need to be consulted on things like management, marketing, public relations and the environment but they are.

This money should be going to the troops that are actually fighting the war and not going on consultants. The government needs to help the soldiers complete their mission by giving them things that they need like helicopters and not spending it on PR to make them look good.

Spending this amount of money on consultants when our soldiers are dying because of the lack of or the wrong equipment is bad enough.

And when you add the £180 BILLION this government spends on quangos it's easy to see why there is little cash in the pot for the essentials of defence

If this government was competent with money the soldiers would probably have everything they need and we could see a tax cut.
