Now that is just plain fcuking scary. If only other news was updated that fast, like our bloody casualties for example.
Watson, you are a reptile , you could have taken the time to say "This is what is bloody wrong with Defence", but no , you successfully carried out the bidding of the other familiars. I expect we'll see you 'forgiven' by Blair or his anointed successor very very shortly and back in Government.
PTP, sad thing is that we have had 5 pages of Blair going or not going or who gives a f**k.
Even ARRSE is relegating the action to the back pages.
The media of course play right into thier hands, I watched Sky tonight, hours of horseshit from some labour bint nobody knows or cares about (I think she was the Chief Whip) agonising over TBs "problems"
And there was me going, 'No it can't be, but when I looked on the BBC Site today seeing the BBC tv news is crap usually goes on about dogs dieing or fat people in the NHS. There it was main page story about Bliar, and the MoD thing just shows that we are living in 1984 the government makes the news happen. The whole government in chaos thing could be to hide the fact that the Afghanistan losses are really getting quite worrying and there is pratically no news of whats going on where are all in the jornos? Oh busy back in West London talking to Lord or Sir whathisface about who's going to lead the Labour party.
i feel i walking on eggshells but the general being ousted is more important than the private getting killed ( and i know that but bliar is not a general, thank god) but i hope you get my point.
These guys are top of the chain of command and it could possibly change the whole running of running of the country, in news terms those poor guys who lost their lives are not as important. I'm saying this is necessarily right but i believe i am merely stating the facts.
It has continually annoyed me over past few years that the papers think that what posh spice is wearing/macca's divorce is more important to the British people then our lads being killed in Afgan/Iraq.
They are quick to slate us on the front pages but when one of us is killed it is printed on p.14!!
At least he lists one of his interests as military history, probably more than can be said for Des.
That Watson chap should be ashamed of himself, there is a time and a place for resigning over principles, and it is not during on of the Armed Forces' worst weeks in modern history when you're a minister in MOD!
