It appears that the SA-80 isn't the only piece of junk that the Brits are fielding these days. Check out this article: http://www.globe.com/dailyglobe2/214/nation/British_arms_fail_in_desert_audit_says+.shtml Yeah, I don't know how to post a link.

The National Audit Office report said Britain's helicopters, guns, and heavy-lifting vehicles all struggled in the heat and dust of Oman, while standard-issue boots fell apart or even melted in the sun. "Stopping a brigade of tanks and getting them into a huddle is not the best way to operate," said David Clarke, one of the audit team.

Why does this surprise anyone ? Years ago , there was a British Auto industry . Because of crap designs and even poorer engineering , the industry collapsed . The big 3 manufactures kept some things going in the U.K. after sending US personal over there to save it . We all know about Lucas electrical systems (joke ;why do Britts drink warm beer ? Lucas makes the refrigerators }. They have their heads up the Queens' Royal Ass ! This IS a socialist country and this is what you get !
