I listened to Jackson on Newsnight last night about this issue, what a load of Guff! I'd rather serve under Col. Mendoca than him any day. He has become a polly.
Besides what do you expect from Bliars Brigade, and please, don't say it wasn't them, it was the MOD, give us some credit.
I fear he's finished, Waste of a good occifer. He must be pretty gutted with the political witch hunt that happened.......he could always give evidence for the prosocution when B'lair becomes the accused :evil:
The bit that gets me is the way the Radio and TV news trumpeted that Col Mendonca was the most senior officer in recent time to be court martialled. Depends what they mean by "recent" of course but it wasn't that long ago that a RN Captain was in the dock on the charge of bullying - subsequently acquitted - and it isn't that long ago that the then Commodore Alan West was Court martialled for leaving secret documents on a canal towpath!
Begs the question did the media decide that themselves or did the MoD brief that?
