Déjà vu all over again

Posted by Richard Friday, February 25, 2011

"Cuts will put lives at risk", warn forces chiefs. Which, I suppose, makes a change from "Cuts 'cost lives of soldiers'" says former chief of the defence staff.

The one, of course, is today – life under the Cleggerons. The other link is from The Times on 4 March 2010, when the target was Gordon Brown - said General Lord Guthrie of Craigiebank, who led the Armed Forces from 1997 to 2001, to The Times: "Not fully funding the Army in the way they had asked ... undoubtedly cost the lives of soldiers. He [Brown] should be asked why he was so unsympathetic towards defence and so sympathetic to other departments."

It hasn't even taken a year. I wonder how long it will be before someone actually admits that the military were better off before the Cleggerons took over – something which will tell us quite how bad things have now become. But did anyone really think you couldn't get worse than Gordon?

Welcome back to the real world.
