It is a while since I posted on the terrible conditions that our armed services, particularly those serving in Afghanistan, are having to face - not least because of the way they are supplied with inappropriate equipment.
Now, we are told by the head of the army - General Sir Richard Dannatt - that "soldiers ...the strain they and their families were under was 'unacceptable'. We have seriously stretched our soldiers to the very limit. Many families and marriages have unfortunately fallen victim to the relentless pace of operations."
When are Brown and this failed government going to realise that there is just so much that the military will stand?
