Yes, the vest is stab proof, and protects the vital organs. Yours is shorter than mine because politicians, we've found, have no guts to protect.

Laudatory second to Buster:

"I meant no disrespect Ma'am...Slapper is a term of endearment down here."

Take it away CSR!

Press release:

BWoS are pleased to announce that the COIN version of the BD-5 is to be bought by the RAF. Whole life cost is estimated at 5,000 per hour, based on 35 hours per year, and 25% airframe availability. The Defence Secretary, Sir Rupert Plumpup t'Pilloes said it was an extremely tightly negotiated contract that offered superb value for money for the MoD.

Note to Editors:

The civilian version of the BD-5 costs 10.35 in Argos. The kit has small parts and is not recommended for children under three years of age, as they may swallow the parts, or even the entire airframe.
