Readers may have noticed a certain amount of controversy in the media about the "underfunding" of our defence forces. But we have just found out how much it costs per hour to fly an Apache attack helicopter - see here. Make sure you are sitting down when you read the figure.
With this profligacy going on, no-one, but no-one is going to convince me that our forces are underfunded.
Admin note: off to London for a launch party for our brilliant book Scared to Death ... so no blogging from me until I get back.
