Lord Foulkes last man to talk about loyalty

Lord Foulkes has always been a scheming plotting Labour Man. Loyal only to Gordon Brown, keen on devolved government except for the English, and generally a man who puts party before country.

Now he has the cheek to suggest that military commanders' comments about resources "threaten to undermine our effort in Afghanistan and give succour to the enemy". He suggested to peers that General Dannatt and Sir Jock Stirrup should be reminded of the "importance of loyalty particularly when we are engaged in a very difficult war where victory is essential for the future safety of this country".

Bollocks, Foulkes! This war is not about safety of this country. If it were, then Pakistan would be picked apart to find the Al Quaeda terrorists along with Somalia and the client states of the Arabian peninsula. We can't even put a stop to the drugs trade which keeps Afghanistan going.

Victory may be essential but it is damned difficult to achieve when vacuous politicians keep the commanders from having the right and proper equipment to do the job properly.
