Des Browne MP has just gone to the top of my list of people who will be “first against the wall come the revolution“.
He has written an article for the Guardian which is the modern equivalent of “Our troops will be home by Christmas”. He is either in complete denial about the situation which faces our troops in Afghanistan or is incompetent, in either case British troops are being lost because of him.
I could just about stomach this laissez faire attitude from Browne except for the fact that he couldn’t even get the battalion right.
A quick message to Mr (not General or Major or Captain or corporal or private) Browne:
It is 3 Para who are in Afghanistan not 2 Para you complete and utter ****.
If you don’t even know who you are sending around the world you should really ask yourself if you are in the right job.
