CDS extended in post

I am not totally convinced Gen Dannatt ever wanted to be CDS. My feeling is Gen Dannatt would not want to get stuck on the political world on No 10, and whilst clearly there is a degree of political thinking and action required as CGS the step to CDS would have taken him away from soldiering that bit too much!
I have said it before - he is as high a rank as any officer can achieve - he cannot be promoted so that incentive is gone.

From the point atwhich that recognition dawns, it is onlya small step to 'nothing to lose by stepping outta line from time to time'.
