1SL Interview on Andrew Marr Breakfast Programme


Lantern Swinger
Did anyone else see JB's interview on BBC1 this morning? He seems to have had some media coaching as I thought he came across quite well. Much better than when he was asked about the Iranian Boatpeople farce.

He said that 30% of those currently deployed in Stan are RN/RM which will probably surprise Joe Public. Gave a good account of the anti piracy ops and managed to avoid being drawn about RN/RAF inter service warfare wrt the airwing on the new carriers.
I thought he handled the interview well but he was a bit too keen to make out everything was coming up daisies.He sidestepped the RN/Crab question but his body language said there was more of a problem than he was prepared to admit.I liked the part where he blamed the Government for starting wars that put a drain on the Defence budget.

That's my issue with Bandy, always upbeat and on message.
He needs to take some tips from Dannat.

Nice one, Bandy.

Noticed the little verbal dagger as well. Nicely put I thought. Good to remind the Light Blue where they belong. Would like to have seen Stirrup/Torpy's reaction.
