Chicken Kevans and Dunkin' Dannatts. Oh wot a not so lovely War..
Chicken Kevans and Dunkin' Dannatts. Oh wot a not so lovely War..
You would think that Gordon Brown (err remember him? Allegedly our Prime Minister, but has gone to ground for the last four weeks or so...) Anyway in the real world many stories doing the rounds (as the media silly season comes to an end) that Defence Minister Kevan Jones had been involved or serially hatching several new smear campaigns against General Sir Richard Dannatt. Head of the UK Military.
General Dannatt, is coming to the end of his distinguished military career, during that time has repeatedly spoken out on pay, poor working conditions, equipment issues and pressing matters concerning the safety of his troops and support units in theatres of war.
Probably due to frustration and the politicians unique ability to face both ways at the same time with fingers in both ears (try it!) Dear Ol' Dunkin' might just have gone too far. He would say not far enough. But consider the ministerial material he is dealing with. Kevan Jones. Lacking in military experience and not that highly regarded by Gordon Brown who in turn does not care for military matters and prefers to delegate down the food chainunless there is a photo opportunity in the offing.
The reality is that British troops get 'stuck in' whereas the US troops will hold back not get directly involved, call up fighters,helicopters and bombers and gain the air and land advantage by bombing.
We simply do not have the resources so send poorly resourced troops in to do the dirty hand to hand close fighting. So the body bags and coffins return to the UK on a daily basis.
Matters might now change as the US General in charge of the whole 'shooting match' has tabled a new document which recognises what the UK military has known for years - its not going very well and we will have to talk to the Taliban... Now would be a very good time to pull out our forces, forget about the training missions - they don't work anyway and re-group inside our own National Boundary.
The terrorist threat is already inside the UK so troops on the ground - our ground would be a very good idea and hopefully the incoming Government will rapidly take the hint. The terrorist threat level will rise as conditions become increasingly financially harder inside the UK - prices in the shops rise due to VAT up 2.5% end of this month. Increases and jobs become really hard to hold down - Brown knows this is his swan song and frankly has given up. He's more worried about not looking good and is busy polishing his so far elusive world statesman role as a feather bedding for retirement to the upper House. His literary works not being too good ansd quickly remaindered by the discounters and book trade .
If the son o'the manse thought about it and rapidly pulled the troops back home, he would be rewarded with a dramatic rise in his share of the pollsters voting intention matrix. Luckily for Cameron, Brown is however too plodding and set in his ways to recognise this.
His road to oblivion actually starts tonight when petrol prices in the UK go up 2p a litre which when passed on will mean an average of 168p (US $1.20c) per litre with an astonishing 68 percent of that going back to the Government by way of tax. Petrol/fuel tax rises directly impact on all walks of life in this island nation. Watch as an unexpected outcome is the continuing drop in immigration as our highly skilled and productive Polish workers realise the game is all but up in the UK and a much better life awaits back in their homeland.
Trouble is they might well be joined by an increasing exodus of Brits. who have now sadly come to the same conclusion. Anyione in the Uk earning over £150,000 now facing the 50p in the pound Income Tax... In fact, Alastair darling has all but done for Brown! Brown Ales all round, because it will be Brown trousers before long...
