Absolutely fantastic to see at last the Cyclops (The Broon) has been backed into a corner by furious MP's outraged at the 'CRASS' decision to further cut TA training.

The Defence Minister Bill Rammell's pathetic sop of 2.5M for one drill night a month was pi**ing in the wind and the House knew it. To have John Reid rail against his own party in government shows how widespread the dissatisfaction was in the Commons. Rammell was made to look an idiot in defence of this decision to cut TA funding.

We've seen a Labour revolt, Tories and Lib Dems salivating at the bleeding haunch of this dead duck PM.

The policy reversals will continue until this 'dead men walking' government is elected out...

A great victory for democracy and people power.

Next to look at the underfunding of the Armed Forces and in particular the cuts to ACF/CCF staff paid training. Surely they are the lifeblood of army recruiting....

Is that the same John Reid who hoped that there would not be ''a shot fired'' in the Afghan deployment.
Should this be the next one to rattle MPs cage over?


Draconian police powers designed to deprive crime barons of luxury lifestyles are being extended to councils, quangos and agencies to use against the public, The Times has learnt.

The right to search homes, seize cash, freeze bank accounts and confiscate property will be given to town hall officials and civilian investigators employed by organisations as diverse as Royal Mail, the Rural Payments Agency and Transport for London.


Councils and other bodies had access to asset recovery powers before but only with with the authorisation and involvement of the police. Now they will be able to act independently of any police force or law enforcement agency
