Only an hour ago I said:
"With people like Williamson in charge, the UK is the rogue state."
60 mins later...
Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson is reportedly to say in a speech later today:
"Brexit has brought us to a great moment in our history. A moment when we must strengthen our global presence, enhance our lethality and increase our mass."
"Enhance our lethality"?
The UK is the rogue state.
@fitheach Is “increasing our mass” a reference to deep-fried snickers bars? 🤪
I have no idea what Williamson is meaning by "mass".
Wikipedia has this to say about "lethality":
"Most often it is used when referring to chemical weapons, biological weapons, or their toxic chemical components."
Even if he doesn't specifically mean those tools of death, lethality is about killing people.
Everything about that man disgusts me.
@fitheach I'm sure all of this blather about "lethality" will not help at all in discussions with the EU neighbors.
I'm sure there will be some major side-eye from the French.
I'm not so sure, Macron has been sounding very militaristic recently.
