The RUSI man's defence of MOD seems particularly ironic, given that the old DCI made specific provision for participation in RUSI activities and the DIN does not. No more question and answer sessions, chaps, if members of the media or public might be present.
And where will RUSI get their learned articles from if they can't publish the Chiefs of Staff (every one of them has published a RUSI article in the last year), and even more learned views from the Director of the Defence Academy?
Over 50 postings on the Newsnight blog even before the programme started. Compare the 13 in total that their F&M blog drew last night. Unless it's all us (doesn't read like it is).
Hackle - congrats on drawing the Newsnights reporter's attention.
if any serving personnel wish to speak freely then i am offering my big gob as a loudhailer so you dont mention that the blocks or kit is in shit state. Everything anyone wants to know about the forces is on google anyway. oops gave it all away!! David shaylor or what!
