My oh my. The defence industry really is getting desperate; after throwing RUSI boss Michael Clarke into a frontal assault on the Grauniad, where he suffered a real monstering, they followed up with a flank attack in the Telegraph by Bretton-Gordon. This was such a rancid piece of sabre-rattling idiocy that to date almost 1,300 comments have torn B-G to shreds. The subs have actually moved his piece out of the line of fire, so absurd it was. Like Clarke, B-G is urging us all to invade Syria for peace. Which, it has been said, is a bit like fucking for chastity. After B-G's destruction, the subs put David Blair into combat - but wisely disabled comments. Blair's nonsense would attract even greater opprobrium from the Telegraph's readers - most of whom have a far better grasp of reality than those who compose such ordure for the paper.
All that's missing is Con Coughlin recommending something even more insane and outlandish, but Fleet Street's finest seems to have gone AWOL. Maybe in the morning he'll lay one of his finely crafted turds on the opinion page. Something to look forward to, I suppose.
They really are getting desperate, aren't they?
