Now, at Long Last, the Useless Bastards Own Up!

By Davidduff

The particularly useless bastards I have in mind are the pompous, feeble creeps who run our armed services and who, in the finest traditions of British 'brass' throughout the ages, are totally unfit for purpose.  Today in The Telegraph they 'fess up' to the fact that the British army was totally unable to fight two major campaigns, Iraq and Afghanistan, simultaneously.  So now, after 450+ men died in Afghanistan and God knows how many were maimed for life, they tell us.  And, of course, by now, well after the event, they have all collected their pensions, gongs, knighthoods and seats in the Lords, but at the time none of them, not a single one, had the courage to stand up to the government and simply say 'No' and threaten to resign if they were over-ruled!  They are all utterly despicable!

The full story will be shown in two episodes on BBC2 this Sunday and the following Sunday.  Watch it and weep!
