A Royal Commission into Australian Defence Policy, Procurement and Preparedness

post-image

We regularly hear piecemeal announcements on Australian defence procurement and the planned location of facilities. These look to be more politically driven than as part of a coherent strategy.  

Both sides of politics have badly let the community down on Defence. Our military structure, posture and equipment are more suited to the last century than today. Our procurement record is littered with poor choices based on political bias and defence department overreach. We have wasted enormous amounts of money on the procurement of ineffective equipment and cancelled programs.  

A Royal Commission is required to sort out the mess!

Agreed! I could not understand, for example, why non-nuclear powered submarines were bought, except for political reasons.
