Gordon to punish Richard Dannat

Army chief General Sir Richard Dannatt will not become head of the Armed Forces.

Sir Richard has incurred the wrath of ministers after commenting that soldiers are paid less than traffic wardens and their families in Britain are living in "appalling" housing.

He could have moved from his current post of Chief of the General Staff to Chief of the Defence Staff on the retirement of Air Chief Marshal Sir Jock Stirrup, but Sir Jock has been asked to stay on until a suitable replacement is found.

The government seem to hate opposition to their plans which is why they are going to punish Sir Richard Dannatt for speaking up for the troops. The fact is our troops are treated badly. They lack essential equipment that can save lives like the life of Guardsman Neil 'Tony' Downes who might have survived in his armoured vehicle if it had been fitted with electronic equipment capable of electronically disabling roadside bombs.

In principle, Brown is no different from Mugabe. That is why Simon Darby and others now refer to 'zanulabour.'

You are right. This government always punishes opposition to its plans.
