Commitment to more defence spending
Oct, 21, 2010

It was interesting to see some more token politics yesterday with the suggestion that the Conservatives are going to promote the donation of free tickets to various sporting and entertainments events.

This foundation will be arms-length grant-giving charity for other Armed Forces charities, and therefore a unique source of funding for the community of those serving and ex-serving military personnel whom we all admire so much.
