"The foundation of Britain's security is NATO. But it's simply not sustainable to expect one NATO ally to spend nearly 4% of GDP on defence while the others spend between 1 and 2%. So for these and other reasons I believe it's time for the next Strategic Defence and Security Review to ask whether over the coming decade we should decisively increase the proportion of GDP we devote to defence. Any additional funds would of course need to be for new capabilities and not simply plugging gaps. And our aim as ever would be to deter and avoid the horror of war in the knowledge that strength is the surest guarantee of peace."

7. SOUNDBITE (English): Jeremy Hunt, British Foreign Secretary:
"But the threat picture, so dramatically reduced at the end of the Cold War has changed markedly. We are in a multi-polar world without the assurance provided by unquestioned American dominance. We face a more aggressive Russia and a more assertive China. We simply don't know what the balance of power in the world will be in 25 years time. And at the same time the nature of warfare is changing. The conflicts of tomorrow could well start with a cyber-attack, then escalate into precision strikes by hypersonic missiles, followed by swarms of unmanned aircraft. The new domains of space and cyber and the immense capability of artificial intelligence will transform the conduct of warfare."

"Let's start with Brexit itself. In 2016 the British people were given their voice and they used it. You tell us they told the political establishment that we are a great democracy. Now we're going to find out if that's true because we've just asked you in a democratic referendum - one you said that you would respect - to do something most of you are dead against. Then the tests got even tougher when the government was deprived of its majority. And now those same voters - and the rest of the world - are waiting to see if Britain, the home of parliamentary democracy, will pass that test. And pass it we must by leaving the EU cleanly and properly. To do so is to live up to a democratic promise and to fail would betray the promise of a democracy. And it would also fail the values that Britain has always stood for. How could we defend democracy on the international stage if a large part of our population believes we are ignoring it at home?"
