You may also wan't to check out us national debt clock real time. just type it into google it will come at the top of the page.Strongly agree about the military. A single one of their aircrafts can cost anything more than £750,000...they are not cheap at all. We don't need protecting at the moment. I think Germany is playing nice now (I sure hope!) and here we are fighting a war in afghan for no fucking reason.
