There is, it seems, someone even more desperate amongst Labour defence ministers than Bob Jobsworth himself; a nonentity of such complete mediocrity that more people could name a sixth century Pope than name him as a defence minister; Kevan Jones. Even his name is so excruciatingly dull that his poor parents replaced a yod with an aleph to add some interest to the man.
Guido has revealed that it is Jones who is trying to smear General Sir Richard Dannatt.
The ludicrous spectacle of this absurd little oik in his shiny and ill-fitting polyester suit snidely filling in an FOI request on the expenses of a member of the general staff like some toilet-sniffing low-rent chiseller would be funnier if he didn't hold office as a Minister of the Crown.
If anything demonstrates beyond any doubt Labour's utterly bankrupt grasp on power, this is it.
