Pay peanuts, get monkeys and donkeys and wannabe lions in uniforms.
the famously cash-strapped MoD
Oh FFS ….. pull the other one, it’s got bells on it. Governments and militaries, amongst other sundry institutions, always have a bottomless pit of flash fiat cash to splash, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise and reveal themselves as ignorant of the fact.
Haven’t you yet worked out how everything happens around you, and how it is paid for?

Re: Cash-strapped MoD
I took that line to be sarcastic. …..marcellothearcane
🙂 Indeed so, marcellothearcane, you are certainly correct. Thanks for making that point so perfectly clear.
The madness though is, with so much being spent, ….. and with so much of the spend also admittedly being a known unknown and zealously guarded Top Secret to boot …. so little is returned to reward MoD efforts. Such suggests a greater and more intelligent leadership and programs are required to succeed extensively and exemplarily in all fields which would do battle with ……. well, proactive engagement is where all the novel revolutionary advances are made to be maintained and sustained for exploitation and export/import.
It is hard not to equate such as may flit between crazy and lazy madness as simple incompetence which opens up a vast range of doors to stores in which to rummage and lay waste to assets uncovered there if ever it be decided they be designedly incompatible with future greater use purpose.

That’s certainly an Almighty Great Game Changer, Irik, expertise in which delivers the unassailable advantage of heavenly boosts to boot and root and route.
It is easy to see the obvious attraction of such a development/operation/program. Although to imagine it a lonely battle field of new endeavour rather than friendly novel ACTive environment providing future excellence services, is a simple misstep to make. …….. and is very easily simply corrected.

How have the proposals … vast expansion of cybercrime offenses, plus network backdoors, online censorship ….. worked out for leaderships and/or systems admins in the West.
Does/Did IT increase exponentially or decrease radically every possible advantage?
Or is it one of those quantum entangling things that can choose to do both, and at the same time results in something else quite different, and whenever in tandem and/or consort with a whole host of others, something else again altogether much more advanced and attractively engaging to an almighty alarming addictive degree ‽ .
Now …. should President Putin be a Real True Fan of that Hellish Angelic Ride, to match the enthusiasm which delivers the result is well worth the honourable sterling effort, for rewards are surely immeasurable and immutable?
