I know Bob Ainsworth comes in for a lot of stick here but having heard him speak recently I am thinking he is no worse than the others, out of his depth perhaps but I think his heart in in the right place. Maybe he is a bit out of an irrelevance anyway, although not a foregone conclusion it is likely that the next SoS Defence will be a certain Dr Liam Fox. Having listened to him over the last few months I have to admit to a serious sense of foreboding, he is simply not acting like a future Minister of state in one of the most important ministries at a time of conflict but resorting to sound bite politics and spouting utter drivel every time he opens his mouth. The recent nonsense about the MoD CD and BFG just confirms to me that he is either being ill advised or is simply a lightweight. Whichever it is, its not a good sign. Perhaps its just knock about opposition politics but is anyone else getting a sinking feeling about Dr Fox?
