Another General enters politics

First 1, now a 2nd, shortly there'll be a flood of them!

BBC News said:
A recently retired Army general has been appointed as a specialist military adviser to the first minister.

Major General David McDowall was Scotland's most senior soldier, until earlier this year.

It is expected that he will advise the government on issues concerning war veterans and their families.

Good thing? I'm less than certain.
