Government’s Integrated Review is not strategic, not integrated and not a proper review.

This week the Conservative Government published their Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy. The Government’s priorities set out in this Review are full of hubris and broken promises.

The Prime Minister has said the Government is “standing up for our values”. Yet, the Review shows the Government reneging on commitments to help the world’s poorest while increasing spending on nuclear warheads, putting economic ties before human rights, drastically cutting our armed forces to fill Defence Budget black holes, failing to take decisive action on China and Russia and ignoring the need to rebuild cooperation with the EU.

We are fighting for a UK that stands for liberal, internationalist and compassionate values on the world stage.

The Integrated Review is not strategic, not integrated and not a proper review. It isn’t even conclusive, finishing by saying that it will be followed by “further strategies”.
