Former top UK commander: Britain's armed forces have been so weakened by cuts it is "questionable" whether they can defend the countryRead the full story ›
The former top UK commander at Nato has warned that Britain's armed forces have been so weakened by cuts it is "questionable" whether they are still capable of defending the country.
General Sir Richard Shirreff - a former deputy supreme allied commander - said he doubted whether Britain could meet its obligation under the Nato treaty to maintain sufficient forces to defend itself.
In a interview with BBC World News's Hardtalk, Sir Richard warned that it would have a "massive credibility impact" on Britain's position in the alliance if defence spending were now to drop below the Nato target of 2% of GDP.
