"Good morning, The Prime Minister made a startling announcement about the current state of The British Armed forces in the aftermath of the move to leave The European Continental Alliance when questioned by The Leader Of The Opposition in The House Of Commons during Prime Ministers Questions. He stated this..."
"I say to the honourable gentleman of The Oppositionm, Mr. Speaker, that the exit from The ECA HAS caused a deficiency in our armed forces inventory. Yes, they no longer have access to the experimental technologies that they've created. Yes, they do not have access to such aircraft as the Tiger helicopter gunship. Yes, they do not have access to anti-aircraft platforms such as the Gepard flakpanzer and Wotan Array. However, this was an event that was foreseen well in advance of the announcement to leave." Edmund began confidently. "While we may now not possess any form of anti-aircraft vehicles, we still possess static and infantry forms of anti-air, which are more than sufficient to fill the void until we can source a replacement."
The Leader Of The Opposition stood up and took to his side of the dispatch box to make his reply.
"Mr. Speaker, as you can see, The Prime Minister has just admitted that he has left our forces in a most precarious position against attacks from the air. I therefore must broach the question of whether he admits that his exit from The ECA was premature, childish and shows a complete lack of care and attention to the defence of our borders and people."
He then sat back down to a chorus of "hear, hears" from his side of the house before The Prime Minister stood back up to provide his rebuttal.
"I categorically refute and deny that our exit was premature or childish." He rebuked. "At this time our greatest enemy is that of The GLA, a terrorist organisation that has, yes, been able to field aircraft, but not enough to pose a serious threat to our soldiers, sailors and airmen and women. The Ministry Of Defence and The professional heads of the armed forces are already well under way with preparations to field vehicles that will at the very least... Match the potency of the European vehicles we have given up."
Edmund took a moment to take a gulp of water before continuing.
"On another note, I state here and now that steps are also being taken to reinvigorate our nuclear missile program. Trident has served our country well, not only as a part of the combined nuclear arsenal of The ECA, but also as our own nuclear deterrent during The Cold War. I believe now, more than ever, that Trident must be replaced by a system that can meet the requirements of the new political climate that has begun to develop in the world and that The United Kingdom must be able to maintain its claim to a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council now that it no longer has access to the combined nuclear arsenal of Europe."
