"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

MoD Own Goal

This revelation from Jess the Dog is a well-deserved tweak of the nose to whoever in the MoD (Kevan Jones?) is trying to smear Gen.Sir Richard Dannatt.

Apparently because of gagging restrictions imposed by DIN 2007-DIN03-006 Generals (and their equivalents) must have MoD approval to speak to the media and also to attend and host dinners with external parties. JTD submitted a FoI request last year and received a 2-page spreadsheet in return.

Whoever instigated the smear campaign against Dannatt seems to have shot themselves in the foot; how laughingly embarrassing for them. They must be completely lacking in principles to think they can smear a man like the General - click on the pic above to see the info on his medals - and to have the gall to try to use his expenses as a means of dishonouring him is unbelievably crass. The guys over at ARRSE - Army Rumours - don't seem too impressed either.
