That’s a lot of money just so they can march backwards faster than anyone else

The head of the Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey army has just quit over budget cuts that Macron has announced.

Someone has compared the Frog army budget with the Brits:

The head of the French Armed Forces has resigned after a clash with President Emmanuel Macron over budget cuts.

General Pierre de Villiers said in a statement that if the cuts were to go ahead, he would not be able to “guarantee the protection of France and the French people, today and tomorrow.”

The cuts planned by Macron would see an €850 million (£752m) slashed in the defence budget.

According to the latest report from the French government (2016), France spends around £37.4bn on defence (2% of GDP), whereas Britain spends £48bn (2.2% of GDP).

This puts Britain one above France in the world ranking of military expenditure (see below).

Even if the planned cuts go through, France would keep its position – with spending decreasing to around £36.6bn.

That is a huge amount of money that essentially ensures that the Frogs can march backwards faster than anyone else and retain their world champion status in the sport of marching backwards.
