My first fab idea for the Spending Challenge

Let's start by turning the armed forces from a cost centre to a profit centre. That way we won't have to spend anything on them at all, or at least spend a lot less. We should learn from our country's proud traditions, and sell commissions to posh boys who don't know what to do with themselves.

We should also allow people and organisations (especially corporations) to sponsor units in the armed forces. There is a lot of space for logos to go on.

The problem with putting your logo on military vehicles is that people in Afghanistan are poor. Whatever a western company is selling, they probably can't afford to buy.

Or is to advertise to the posh boys who bought commissions under the mistaken belief that life in the military does not suck?

Ori, the point isn't the local punters. Lots of people watch footage of the war; and lots more will once we've auctioned the rights.
