Below the right hand menu on this website, there is a tool, ‘Current military spending‘.  You can see two figures increasing rapidly.  They show the rate of expenditure on the military in the UK, and globally.  Pausing to watch the figures increasing so fast, and reflecting on what the money could be spent on instead, is sobering.
