Executive Summary

The long awaited transition at the top of the British government, with Gordon Brown taking over the Prime Minister‚s job from Tony Blair, was due to happen at the end of June. With the Labour Party remaining in power, a significant degree of policy continuity was expected. On the other hand, however, Brown will need to make some important adjustments if his party is to do well in the next general elections, which must be held by 2009 at the latest. Over recent quarters, Labour has taking a hammering in a series of local elections and in opinion polls. The electorate remains further troubled by Blair‚s seemingly unquestioning alliance with the Bush Administration in the US. There are currently no major conventional military threats to the UK. However, the country‚s fear of an international terrorist attack was realised on July 7 2005 when four bombs were detonated across London‚s transport system by an al-Qaeda cell. A similar attack was launched two weeks later but the bombs failed to explode, signalling the organisation‚s commitment to continue its campaign on British soil. Security levels were then at a maximum, with an increased presence of armed forces in public areas. The government presently assesses the current threat level as ‚severe‚, suggesting that an attack is ‚highly likely‚. The defence industry is benefiting from a range of multinational programmes and major procurement projects within the UK. Rationalisation and internationalisation of the industry continue, and the announcement of an agreement over the second tranche of the Eurofighter‚s Typhoon is good news for the British defence industry and employment levels generally. The MoD also made a large number of procurements during 2006-2007, reflecting the UK‚s continued commitment to the US-led war on terror. Plans to restructure the defence industry to meet the long-term needs of the armed forces could lead to the UK becoming less sensitive to where platforms and systems are built. Involvement in multinational programmes is expected to increase UK arms exports over coming years. These projects should enable UK firms to gain defence contracts for the supply of components, subsystems and structures. Regardless of the strength of the UK defence industry, there are perpetual reports that the British Armed Forces deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan are inadequately equipped ‚ a significant domestic demand exists should the funds be found. The government is on the back foot in terms of both its domestic and foreign policies. It has had to choose a new leader whilst struggling to maintain party unity, and whilst reeling from the criticisms of its position during last year‚s Israeli invasion of Lebanon, together with the discovery of an alleged al-Qaeda plot to explode commercial airliners leaving British airports. Its armed forces are stretched and reportedly ill-equipped, and its defence industry, whilst one of the world‚s most advanced, is limited by the government‚s investment in the industry.
