According to The Sunday Times, recently retired military generals in the UK have been secretly filmed claiming that they have the ability to influence arms deals if they are hired as lobbyists

The rules governing lobbying say that generals must have been retired for two years before they can become involved in any activity which might be helped by their previous role.

Lord Dannatt, the former head of the UK army, talked about "targeting" the UK Defence Ministry's top civil servant, with whom he went to school.

Lieutenant General Richard Applegate, a former Ministry of Defence procurement chief, reportedly described a secret lobbying campaign in parliament for a £500m military programme on behalf of an Israeli arms company.

The Sunday Times says Lt Gen Applegate was prohibited from lobbying at the time because he had recently retired.

Sir Jimmy Savile was known to have had dinner with Admiral Sir Michael Boyce, Chief of the UK Defence Staff at the time of 9 11, and was known to have had close relationships with the leaders of Israel.
