Everyone wants a review

The Tories say they will conduct a strategic defence review now Labour say they will do the same after the next election, before that there will be a "root and branch" review of defence policy by the end of this year. The initial review will not look at making cuts to the defence budget, no word on what the strategic defence review would do of course.

However the initial review will "examine defence policy as a whole - its purpose, the way it works, what the services expects, its technological priorities".
