    Full story is here.

    I must declare a small interest here - I was involved in the NAO investigation (sorry...fact-finding mission) over certain aspects of this report.

    I think the MoD are getting off very lightly here - wake up Min DP - you're time is almost up!
  2. Darth, do you actually do any work?

    You are the definition of a salary thief!

    I was involved in the UOR process - at least, getting funding approved. It was indeed a pretty slick system, however...... it would not have been required if we had been allowed to go through normal channels, as they say.

    The problems were ENTIRELY caused by our not being allowed to even mention to anyone that we were contemplating attacking Iraq, when of course the entire world knew we were. Luckily, some sensible plcs helped out immensely - often at their own risk.

    Were Soldiers were put at risk purely due to internal Labour Party dissention?
