Previous mistakes though - not his mistakes. Perhaps clearing the air - any crap that happens isn't my fault, it was my rubbish predecessors, I love the Forces, especially 'elicopters...

Is it not called 'Rowing back'? Trying to cover the tracks and make themselves 'fluffy' again
 
I suppose, arguably, he’s got sod all to lose by saying that. He clearly can’t be “on message†but what can Brown do about it, though. Replacing him that quickly would not look good, nor be that easy.

Making those sort of noises is going to put yer man Cameron on the spot. Is he going to say Ainsworth’s wrong?

Does he need to?He might say that he agrees but the government has not gone far enough in their recognition of past mistakes.
 
Fair point but then Cameron would have to back that up with money. As the likely next PM, I think he would rather avoid that. Ainsworth must know that Labia will be out on it’s a**e so he can pick all the holes he wants because he won’t have to fill them.

I'm such a victim, people attack me over my accent, my moustache... and because I'm no intellectual, moans Defence Secretary.

The Defence Secretary Bob Ainsworth yesterday suggested he was the victim of social prejudice because of his accent and moustache.
Mr Ainsworth, who has faced heavy criticism for his performance in the job, admitted that he was not an intellectual. But the former factory worker from Coventry insisted he was qualified to run the Ministry of Defence.

If I start feeling sorry for the daft sod I'll be really annoyed.

OK - if I had a Cov accent I'd tear my own vocal chords out but he only needs a razor to cure the tash.
