The Daily Mail, in it's usual lack of thought way have posted the following picture with the capition

    "Anti-aircraft guns similar to those being used to protect the Olympic Games are seen in action in England during World War Two"..

    Similar??? I know there have been cutbacks in defence spending but surely we aren't so skint that we have dragged out the old 3.7inch AA guns from storage?

    It's lucky there's not a security threat otherwise the baddies would know where all the fire power was! I think the only thing I don't know from the Daily Mail is what the troops are having for lunch on Thursday.
