PM Pledges To Increase Defence Spending After Ditching Pledge To Increase Defence Spending
Boris Johnson made the announcement at a press conference at the Nato summit in Madrid.Boris Johnson has announced plans to increase defence spending by the end of the decade - just days after ditching a manifesto pledge to put it up every year.The prime minister said the UK will be spending 2.5 per cent of gross domestic product on defence by 2030.At the moment, the government is committed to hitting the Nato target of at least 2 per cent.Defence secretary Ben Wallace has called on the Treasury to increase defence spending from 2024.But earlier this week it emerged that the PM had scrapped a promise in the last Tory election manifesto to increase spending by 0.5 per cent more than inflation every year.Speaking at the end of the Nato summit in Madrid, Johnson would only commit to increasing the amount the UK spends on defence by the end of the decade.The PM - who earlier confirmed the UK was giving another £1bn-worth of military support to Ukraine - said: “Countries around the table are also recognising that they must spend more.“And in our case that means meeting, and being prepared to exceed, the target we set for ourselves a decade ago of everybody spending 2 per cent of our GDP on defence, goals which were then set for a very different era. “What we are saying is that we want Jens Stoltenberg, the [Nato] general secretary, to start work on that new target now and he has agreed to do that.“We need to invest for the long term, in vital capabilities like future combat air, while simultaneously adapting to a more dangerous and competitive world. The logical conclusion of the investments we propose to embark, of these decisions, is 2.5 per cent of GDP on defence by the end of the decade.”Johnson also rejected suggestions that the British people would grow tired of supporting Ukraine as the war with Russia contributes to the cost of living crisis.He said: “The point I would make about the cost of freedom, as it were, is actually it’s always worth paying.“Unless we get the right result in Ukraine, Putin will be in a position to commit further acts of aggression against other parts of the former Soviet Union, more or less with impunity, that will drive further global uncertainty, further oil shocks, further panics and more economic distress for the whole world.”Related...5 Signs A 'New Iron Curtain' Is Forming Between Russia And The WestUkraine Is Winning The War And Russia Has Lost 25,000 Troops, Says Defence SecretaryBen Wallace Piles Pressure On Boris Johnson To Increase Defence Spending

Dredd zone: the anarchic world of comic-book artist Steve Dillon
His groundbreaking work on such seminal characters as Judge Dredd, Preacher and Punisher is being celebrated with a posthumous show of his remarkable legacyThere are few artists who exemplify the anarchic, irreverent and anti-authoritarian British take on the comic book the way Steve Dillon does. Born in London and raised in Luton, Dillon died in New York in 2016, at the age of 54, following complications arising from a ruptured appendix. What remans is a remarkable body of work that includes the seminal UK comic magazine Deadline, which he co-founded; his illustrations on a fan-favourite run of Hellblazer, the Alan Moore-created comic that follows British chaos magician John Constantine; and most notably, the critically acclaimed Preacher, which he co-created with famed comics writer Garth Ennis.First published by the US company DC in 1995, Preacher told the story of Jesse Custer, a small-town minister who is accidentally possessed by the offspring of an angel and a demon, and who goes on the road with his ex-girlfriend and an Irish vampire, searching for a solution to his problem. The comic ran for five years and was followed by a TV series starring Dominic Cooper, on which Dillon was executive producer. Continue reading...
