Gordon Brown in army helicopter fantasy!

Gordon Brown's wonderland excursion on Wednesday at PMQs was a fantasy of the first order. Now the Chief of the Defence Staff, Sir Jock Stirrup, has said the deployment of more helicopters to Afghanistan would save soldiers' lives. Brown wittered on about the exact opposite. Now he is backtracking like a boy in front of the headmaster found out for telling fibs!

David Cameron said the government must listen to military commanders. "The prime minister has been telling us all week that they have got enough helicopters and actually now we know they don't," he said. What on earth are we to make of it all?

Someone keen to keep his weasel words up to scratch is Lord Mandelson. This interview from the BBC shows why he is such a wily character.
