Strategic Defence Review round-up

The government have released a green paper ahead of a strategic defence review which will take place after the next election. The number of senior officers would be cut as less would be needed to look after a smaller armed forces. The Defence secretary has said Britain must work more closely with allies like France (shared carriers?) and become more efficient (do more for less). The Prime Minister has meanwhile denied soldiers were sent into battle without the equipment they needed. But surely that is one of the traditions of the British armed forces!
