I am unfamiliar with this journo, although I noted he also writes for The Sun. It seems he is taking up the cudgel from Foulkes in attacking Gen Dannat. It is interesting and incredibly ironic that the General's critics are focusing on his helo sorties while he also had a car at his disposal. I suppose this view helps to explain their apparent naivete' in failing to provide sufficient helo support to troops in Afghanistan. I assume it is because UK troops also had ground transport available and thus having helos is redundant?
