From this months GQ interview with Piers Morgan "My brothers about to go on a 6 month tour of Afghanistan. Can you give me a guarantee that he will have the equipment he and his colleagues need to do the job properly" GB "Our troops must be properly equipped and any suggrstion that any politician would send them into battle without the right tools is wrong." "Are you offended that you're not seen as a friend of the military"? GB "I am a friend of the military" "Many in the armed forces don't see it that way" GB "Look, no request for UORS has ever been turned down since I've been Chancellor or PM". So by my reckoning, he lied to every single answer - nice one Mr Brown. Perhaps the follow up question should be "If you think Defence is about getting properly equipped troops, why are you insisiting that the Defence budget be cut so significantly during the PR10 planning process"?
