One of the most sickening aspects of Gordon Brown’s Labour regime was the shameful treatment of our armed forces and the breaking of the military covenant.
Brown and the rest of his politburo under funded the armed forces, cut defence spending in real terms for 4 years and used a an orchestrated campaign of lies and smears to tarnish anyone who dared speak out about the lack of funding. No one was immune to the campaign of smears and lies, General Officers, commanding officers and the families of serving officers were all the target of hate campaigns run by “Bolloks Bob” Ainsworth and his semi-literate side sidekick Bill Bramell.
A new low even for any Labour government and lets face it there have been some monumental Labour failures when dealing with our armed forces, all the way from the Wilson government failing the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders in Crater to present day Afghanistan. Labour like all good apologetic socialists has always been more concerned with caring for the enemy, at the expense of our own soldiers lives and well being. Read the rest of this entry

The biggest political story since Watergate?
Possibly but the major coup by The Telegraph on the MP’s expenses scandal is now turning into a fascinating story in its own right.
A book Called No Expenses Spared is published tomorrow.
“How soldiers’ fury helped lead the Telegraph to its great exclusive” from Telegraph Blogs Editor Damian Thompson
Brown, various defence ministers and Brown’s government have sold the armed forces short, and it is widely recognised that the Government have broken the military covenant.
From cutting the defence budget while we were fighting in both Iraq and Afghanistan, to lying to the country about the equipment our brave soldiers have, Brown and his shower have behaved shamefully.
When the Generals spoke out, they were subjected to the very best lies and smear campaign from the blueprint of Draper, Collins and McBride.
The storm that followed this finally forced “Working Class” Bob Ainsworth to order his weasles to stop smearing General Dannatt, this however did not stop Gordon Brown from personally blocking the Generals promotion to Chief of the Defence Staff. The country has lost a very capable and respected officer because of the vanity of Gordon Brown and his Labour Government, the armed forces a respected and skilled champion.
Aardvark believes in Karma, and in The Telegraph “MPs’ expenses details were leaked by a mole who was angry about the Government’s failure to properly equip Britain’s armed forces while politicians spent millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money on themselves.” by the authors of the book is proof that what went around came back.
