Mr Brown your dress code shames my army, me and my country

#1
Recent photos of our brave and glorious leader in Afghanistan wearing a 'nice' blue suit, tie etc in an operational zone just shows what a complete 'TWAT' the man is. His insensitive, embarrassing and inappropriate dress just reinforces his image as a 'buffoon' and clearly not the 'saviour of the world' as he thinks he is.
Could a QM somewhere offer him some sartorial advice and some combats?

Are you mad!!!!
You really want to see this character in combats. Can you imagine the NuLiarbour propoganda machine going into overdrive with Campbell,
Mandelson et al (think Hazel Blears) all then jumping into camoflauge
for the cameras.
Big shudder time me thinks

You can tell that the kid in the red is looking at CMD and thinking what we are all thinking.

Why is it that politico's think they are impressing anyone with this crap?

Do they honestly think that flying 'club class' and spending 45 minutes asking the troops if the mail is getting through does anything for them?


Here is an idea.........stop walting it and milking troops for all the spin you can and stay the fuck in blighty and make sure that the troops have a half decent country to return home to.


Fucking donkeys the lot of them.

Get a life you bandwagon jumping fool.

What else is the man supposed to wear? If he went down in combats he'd look like a total tosser.. the only other option is t shirt, shorts and a baseball cap..

Not an issue whatsoever. Get a life.

PS I appear to be jumping on the bandwagon of those who feel that your bandwagon is crap. Ah well. :)

Bullshit. Brown is making the point that he is the prime minister by wearing his suit and tie; as opposed to the weird sandy para military dress adopted by others. He is showing a great deal of respect and setting an example. Good man and well done for getting forward too.

Yes, he should be wearing combat fatigues then he could be criticised for playing soldiers. Catch a bludy grip man!

Wee Gordon has many faults, but I cannot see how this is one of them.

Where I come from, people wear suit and tie when they are serious about their business and respect their oppos. As other posters pointed out, what are the alternatives?

The Paul Bremer?


The Dubya?


The local?


What a load of piffle. ARRSE deserves better threads than this. Alas, I seem to be part of the problem rather than the solution. 8O

What a very stupid thread. Really really stupid. Edited accordingly. In total agreement with 5A and Hannay.

How else do you expect the Prime Minister of the British Isles to be dressed? He wears a suit and tie, he shows respect not just for his position, but for the people he has come to see.

If he had worn Dessies, with Parliamentarian rank slides,(which he is entitled to do) there would have been merry hell and grimfing galore.

He wore a suit, he also got himself right up forward to see the boys, and he wasn't wearing BA a la Blair. He wore a suit to show our footdragging NATO allies, that if he can get up into the Blue, then they should be bloody well ashamed of themselves.

And no, the boys he was with , especially at FOB didn't look disgusted or pissed off. We've all seen and some Arrsers have been present when Blair cynically used troops for photo ops. Brown got up the front and right into the threat zone to talk to the people at the tip of the spear. When did Blair ever do that?

Well done Prime Minister.

I hate to say it but PTP is right.

Fair enough I know alot (Most) of it was a PR exercise but he didn't just tip up at the airport and shout at the pilot to leave the engines running as he'd only be a minute.

As for wearing a suit. If he'd have put on a uniform I'd have suggested that then and there he asked to be called Comrade Stalin. If he had gone for the uncle Tony dressed down look he may have been more practical.

However he chose a smart suit. Something which looks respectable is defiant in the face of our enemies and quite frankly a suprisingly "British" thing for him to do.

However that is a small glimmer of light in a very dark black hole that his party has created, so the man is still a pleb and I'll be happy to see the back of him.

Break out the Champers Sven - I agree with you 8O

Which mean I must agree with Ashie.

We have always been at war with East Asia (is it conatgious?)

Now I would have been outraged if he'd worn the Queens' Uniform.

Can someone point me in the direction of the MOD orders which detail Prime Ministerial dress codes for operational theatres?

Dressing scruffily in theatre is far more of an insult to the lads than turning up in a suit - at least he made an effort, and frankly there is something terribly British about appearing in theatre in a suit - the old British consul in Basra used to do it all the time - even sitting in the back of a warrior.

Personally I got more excited about the character in Combat 95 who walked off the plane with Mr B in Baghdad. He appeared to have left his belt behind on the plane which must have been embarrassing when walking out in front of the world's press.
