Useless Bob Jobsworth is the absolutely ideal Secretary of State for Defence for NuLiebore.
He presides over the most inefficient and self-serving department in Shitehall, responsible (!) for such wondrous fuck-ups as the Chinnooks with no software, sending troops to war without the right kit in order to hide ministerial mendacity, cutting the medical provision for injured combatants, going to court to try and cut compensation awards, and sneakily withdrawing benefits from those soldiers so badly wounded that they cannot get decent jobs.
Now to save a few bob, soldiers are to train with blank ammunition.
Next they'll be ordered to shout "Bang!" at the fucking Taliban.
Yet McCavity flies off to Afghanistan for a photo opportunity...shame no one had the guts to throw him off the helicopter in the middle of Sangin and let him negotiate direct with the Taliban.
