It’s Strategy Week in the UK

October 19, 2010

Yesterday the government published a new UK National Security Strategy (NSS)  document and today we have the publication of of the Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR).  Obviously the new government has been doing some deep strategic thinking… except that tomorrow we’re getting the results of the latest Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR) which will announce major cuts in government expenditure so not surprisingly the assumption is that it is the CSR that has driven the NSS and the SDSR.

Tomorrow we should have an idea of how much the foreign affairs budget will be cut by even if we don’t know precisely where the axe will fall.
