2020. What a year. To quote my younger millennial sister, ‘I can’t even.’ Fires, pandemics, travel bans, skyrocketing freight costs, mandatory call outs and deployments of Reserves, working from home, the release of the Brereton report, video conferencing, lockdowns, essential workers and more.
The major policy updates of the Defence Strategic Update and the Force Structure Plan, the Defence White Paper you have when you don’t have a White Paper, were some of the best researched and planned documents to come out of government in a long time. Were they an updated publicly available Integrated Investment Plan? No. But they did provide a much needed update.
