Forces close to col­lapse

Daily Star - - News -

YEARS of de­fence cuts have left the armed forces “close to break­ing”.

MPs on the Com­mons De­fence Com­mit­tee were told that the Army was “20 years out of date”.

Ex-Com­man­der Gen­eral Sir Richard Bar­rons added: “We are look­ing at North Korea which within 18 to 20 months will mate a nu­clear mis­sile to an in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal-range mis­sile which can reach London. We can­not deal with that.”
