I refer you to the answer I gave a few moments ago

Des Browne!

I have to take deep breathes when I write about this man.

——- (Pause, count to 10 then continue writing) ——-

Defence questions. A chance to show the House and the country that the Minister is on top of his brief, what actually happened was that he showed once again what a . . . . . he is.

– – – (Calm down James) – – –

He defended his governments treatment of the woefully underfunded/overcommitted armed forces by saying that the Tories had cut defence spending. Yes we did, when we cut defence commitments.

What job do you think that he really wants? He clearly has no passion for the defence brief, has little respect for soldiers, doesn’t listen to advice, seems not to know who is where and doing what and can’t grasp even the most basic of logistical requirements.

I received an email from the father of a young Royal Marine in Afghanistan, he was clearly frustrated and worried. I doubt that he had much confidence in the current Secretary of State for Defence.

Estelle Morris resigned because school performance was slipping, what will it take for Des Browne to do the decent thing?

  1. Aaahhhhhgggghhhhh,
    When will it end? Desperate Des indeed.
    Everyone was taking part in “the process” and was happy about it all.
    What in the name of all that’s holy does that mean?
    It makes you wonder if Churchill was wasting his time coming up with pithy statements like Action this day!

    The man is worse than the RAF at least they are just utterly utterly useless!

    But wait, we laugh, we bemoan his inabliltiy to manage, but this is not the education system, this is not transport. THIS IS DEFENCE. Get this wrong, and LOTS of people get to die. It’s no laughing matter.
