I hope I may be excused feeling a little smug today - the chickens are coming home to roost in precisely the way I hoped they would. Two successive reports from the government's financial watchdog, the NAO, have effectively endorsed the very difficult decisions we took while I was at MoD.
To keep on producing weapons-grade uranium Aldermaston is clearly going to need some major investment. At a time of austerity, when families are relying on foodbanks and benefits are being cut, can we really justify adding to the already astronomical nuclear weapons bill?
In my line of work, I'm rarely surprised about anything and listening to the news this week was no different. A new report by MPs states that UK forc...
With yet more allegations of bullying and abuse in the armed forces, the time has come for the government to act on its promise to ensure that serving personnel are treated fairly and get access to the support they need when they leave active service.
MoD is flouting the law and perpetuating the myth that shooting animals helps save human lives on the battlefield. The truth is that having military personnel try to repair the wounds of pigs who have been violently injured on a firing range does not help humans.
I finally retired last year after 36 years on the show to write my memoirs, but here's hoping Blue Peter and its brilliant presenters celebrate many more amazing adventures showing just how good the best children's TV can be.
Women have as much right as men to fight on the frontline.
A lot of people will find what I have written here quite unusual and maybe unreal. But when you look at all the sigtings reports, images, eye witness accounts, and inside information from people who worked within military and black ops projects, things become a lot clearer.
Times are changing and this subject is becoming much bigger with an ever growing amount of people in search of the truth. The people have a right to know what's really going on regarding Extra-Terrestrials and UFOs and it will only be a matter of time before we as a race move forward and take the next step...
It is said that the UK Armed Forces are the 4th emergency service and they are often called upon in the face of national and international emergencies such as flooding, earthquakes or even a security shortage at the London 2012 Olympics.
Individuals that have provided years of loyal military service will have an extremely hard time accepting these upcoming redundancies and the slashing of historical traditions.
I 100% believe that UFO and extraterrestrials are with us constantly, and it is only a matter of time until it is fact.
There are now just six days left for the British government to extract its prisoner from Bagram. If they fail on the basis that the US feels no obligation to keep its promise and hand him over, the MoD must expect promptly to be sued, and for a war crimes report to be made to the police.
I have been at this game for many years and have often despaired of the dumbing down of British TV - a process that has been accelerated by the proliferation of channels all vying for the viewer's attention. The response to Royal Marines: Mission Afghanistan has renewed my faith in the British TV viewer.
This is the first post of The Afghanistan Series that will, over the coming months, introduce readers to important and largely non-mainstream literature regarding Western intervention in Afghanistan.
Next time you receive a present you're not happy with or a sibling causes an argument over the Christmas dinner or you are made to go out of your way for a crazy grandparent, realise how lucky you are to have these things and cherish every Christmas you spend with your family.
