According to Richard Barrons, the UK army is 'not fit for the purpose', and made it clear that North Korea would be able to hit London with a nuclear missile within the next 18 months.
"We now live in an age where people who are not on our side have the capability that they could, I'm not saying they will, but could, inflict on the UK homeland at short notice which we can't deal with," said Barrons, Sky News reports.
Barrons said that all the three British armed forces are falling behind innovation when compared to its counterparts in other developed nations. The retired general also added that the country is facing threats from the dreaded Islamic Group ISIS, and if they get assailability to more deadly weapons, one of their primary targets will be London.
Barrons also made it clear that Britain's continuous confrontations with Russia are not good for the nation.
