Another Defence Secretary

Discussion in 'Current Affairs' started by OSLO, Jun 5, 2009.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. And again, despite the intensity of operations and the dire situation of the department, we're about to see Liebore inflict another Secretary of State for Defence on us. Have they installed only revolving doors to the Main Building entrances? How can we expect continuity when the Department is led by temps?
  2. As he has spent the last 2 years in the MoD surely this move is logical? Perhaps you are blinkered by your own political dogma.
  3. What were David Cameron's comments in May of this year about the future of the £21bn Trident project under a incoming conservative government.
    Was it something along these lines.
    "Considering abandoning the British Trident nuclear missile deterrent or going for a less expensive up grade by converting to air launched cruise missiles.Rather than the present governments planes for four expensive submarines".Hmmmmmmm nice one Dave go for it :lol:
  4. I remember Bob Ainsworth from a few years ago when he was a back bench MP,who used to hold some of his surgeries in the smoked filled bar of Bell green Working Mens club in Coventry. He has not changed ! he is still a Socialist "yes" man to who ever tells him to Jump like Gordon Brown.
    Defence Secretary in charge of the armed forces ! do me a favour,he would prefer to spend the defence budget on fags,booze and scratch cards for the benefits layabouts in Coventry. He would not know one end of a rifle from the other.
  5. so who's replaced him as Armed Forces Minister?

  6. Phew,l that's a huge relief as I did not think there were any socialists in this labour government.
  7. I notice he is another from the Treasury team, look for more shrinkage in the forces in order to make the books balance for the bankers etc. What a load of sh1t this lot are and the Tories will not be any better, as someone has already mentioned the update for Trident will be cancelled though perhaps not who knows what the penalty clause says?
  8. Come again? The facts are there - the MoD has had the highest op tempo for some 60 years, and we've got a defunct government leading a corrupt House with an inept clown for a leader, who don't hold Defence (or any other major department, for that matter) in sufficiently high esteem to keep the same person in the job for half a dog watch.

    Try using logic and argument, Wurz.

    Gordon came on TV and told us the new SoS had the confidence of 'commanding officers', so that's all right then.

    .. as Cameron hums 'Jolly Boating Weather' .. but not with the RN words.

    He clearly doesn't understand anything much and I find his policies, such as they are, are whatever populist thought crossed his mind while he was shaving in the morning. Like 'Hug a Hoodie'. He's all opportunist stunts and show and damn all substance in my opinion. A sort of Blair in woad.
