    • First I’m hearing of that Sir Mike, I’ve heard overinflated price but not expired for AFU MREs. Even ones a dog dug up for a frontline unit it “adopted” were within a acceptable perimeter.

  1. This isn’t good in peacetime let alone wartime.

    These people are too stupid and greedy to realise that the moskali will jump on things like this to influence the ‘common’ people and turn them against the State.
