I just scanned a National Audit Office news release which says:
Ministry of Defence: The Equipment Plan 2017 to 2027
The Ministry of Defence’s (the Department’s) ten year Equipment Plan is not affordable and does not provide a realistic forecast of the costs the Department will have to meet over the next 10 years buying and supporting the equipment it has determined the Armed Forces need.
There is a time for subtlety.
The NAO clearly decided this was not one such occasion.
I think this might be called a pretty poor fail. But that is worrying in the context of a government that does not appear to be able to get much else right.
