Sir Simon Jenkins.
Sir Simon Jenkins is a former editor of the UK's Times newspaper.
He wants the UK to save £45 billion by scrapping the UK armed forces. All of them.
He is a sensible chap.

Costa Rica was the very first country to formally abolish military forces.
The constitution has forbidden a standing military since 1949.
Helen Thomas, veteran reporter at the White House, is a sensible person
In 2002, she asked: "Does the president think that the Palestinians have a right to resist 35 years of brutal military occupation and suppression?"
It was Helen Thomas who asked which countries in the Middle East have nuclear weapons.
And, she told a rabbi that Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and "go home" to Poland and Germany.
