You can bet your last penny that this is nothing more than lip service.
Wait a couple of months and see if anything has changed, it won't have.
Just like all the initiatives to help industry through the recession where nothing has actually been done other than announce grand plans.
Huuu haaa. Him Brown fella velli funni man. Him make velli money riting dramma an' dead series for telly. Like aktor before him better ritin' series "Minder" but more like life like he know it fÃ¼ck people bad.
Downing Street says the PM will take decisions in "light of military advice" and review troop levels with allies.
He might just realise that he has been rumbled. McDoom, in his wildest fantasies of his 'Pythonesque-Yes-Prime-Minister' thought processes has realised that the...'Country is Angry!!'
Two courses of action - to make good on his statements.....Or revert to Liarbor 'SOPS' - do nothing. Spout much, yadder and blether much for public consumption, but do nothing!!
The first actions are more than likely. The 'Standard Course of Action' of Do Nothing with a general election in less than a year just might galvanise McDoom out of his hole under Number Ten. But then, he might just try and turn his attention on the Military and try to engage his Spin Doctors in negative campaign against current Senior Military figures.
So don't hold your breath....... Actions will speak louder than words.... Wait and see!!
Sounds like a cunning plan to me. No top brass will say that they can't do the job and get asked to retire early. No one wants to be the person that kills the gose that lays the golden eggs. When they do retire they will tell say that they begged for more kit for the lads.
Why is the weasel Mandelbum talking about a defence issue is he the puppet master behind one eye? Of course Broon will listen it's just that his fingers will be in his ears and he'll be laddy da ing the whole way through.
