British Prime Minister: The decision to increase defense spending was absolutely right.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said during a speech in parliament that the authorities made the “right decision” - to increase defense spending amid heightened threats, including from the “Islamic State”, as well as “Russian behavior” .

“But this decision is to increase defense spending in a very dangerous and unstable world, when we face threats in Europe, given Russia’s behavior, ISIS threats in the Middle East, combined with all other threats, we were absolutely right to increase these costs "- quotes his words RIA "News".

“National security will always be the priority of the current cabinet of ministers,” the premier added.

Earlier, the Scottish National Party and Labor conservatives criticized the increase in defense spending.

The Conservative government announced an increase in the defense budget and the creation of a £ 1bn security fund almost immediately after the winter elections. Then Cameron explained such costs with significant threats, including, allegedly, from the Russian side, which he was put on a par with the Islamic State during the election campaign.

At the same time, along with an increase in defense expenditures, there is an overall budget reduction, including in the social sphere, by 37 billion pounds.

    Well yes. Russian military aircraft fly with impunity over the British Isles, and they are all surrounded by enemy submarines.

      The Britons are surrounded by threats from all sides. Only the strait and special forces in the tunnel save.

      It is necessary to start with internal problems - soon migrants will captivate you so that it doesn’t seem enough and will become like the Roman Empire.

        If you look at the situation objectively, you can see how America famously spread all its partners for money, forcing them to spend money on American weapons

    Increasing defense spending, it is necessary to reduce spending on social needs, thereby causing popular anger

    With an increase in defense spending, there is a general reduction in the budget, including in the social sphere, by £ 37 billion.

    Refugees will help you cut the budget by many more billions of pounds.

    as well as taking into account the “behavior of Russia”.

    They would at least once explain (by Ukraine, it was already sore), what kind of "behavior" Russia has. Isn't Russia really threatening Britain and called it enemy No. 1? In the West, it has already become a habit to transfer all arrows to our country.
