Quick information piece on why there are still thousands of British troops in Germany 10 years after their reason to be there went away (The Cold War).

The reason boils down to money: It would damage the German economy if they left and it would cost the MoD billions to move them back to the UK. So both the UK and German governments want them to stay.
