Tim Collins, former colonel of 1st Battalion, Royal Irish Regiment, yesterday accused the government of lacking a strategy for Afghanistan. He told BBC TV's Sunday AM: "We have a British government that has no idea of what it wants to do. It's invited the Army to go to Iraq, to Afghanistan, and do stuff. It would be a bit like giving your keys to builders and say go and do some stuff in my house." (c) The Grauniad. I don't think that Col Tim is terribly impressed by our Dear Leader.
