Defence chief warns on cuts

Defence chief warns on cuts
The head of the Armed Forces General Sir David Richards has warned that the military may not be able to meet ministers' demands due to cuts to the defence budget. "Often politicians say to me, 'can you go and do this?' I say to them, 'with what?', he said in an Oxford University lecture. He added that one of his biggest concerns was the number of frigates and destroyers the Navy has, and how the lack of ships means admirals have to use advanced warships for relatively minor operations like counter piracy off the East African coast, the Daily Telegraph reported.
