Gordon Brown's loathsome and repulsive immoral compass works every time in directing him towards a destination that screws the nation for reasons of selfish partisan comfort. Peter Oborne rightly rips him to shreds in this morning's Mail for an act that can almost be described as treasonous, in passing over for the nation's top defence post a man widely described as "one of the most outstanding officers the British Army has produced since the end of World War II".
Like third-rate political talents everywhere, Brown prefers to appoint persons as talentless as himself, compliant with the myopia and stupidity that flows like sewage from Downing Street.
General Dannatt is a highly talented, honourable, thoroughly decent and altruistic officer who is deeply concerned for the nation's ability to maintain the army that it needs.
God, I loathe Zanu Labour and everything it stands for.
