Cats and Cards – Defence as a Political Football
It is obvious that the government needed something to get the Human Right Act and cat’s off the news agenda so what better way than a security and sexuality innuendo.
Liam Fox is under pressure about his relationship with Adam Werritty, business cards, visits to Main Building and any potential security issues.
Of course the Guardian and BBC are all over this like a tramp on chips, as one would expect, but yet again, none of the braying crowd, or indeed, those that leaked the story, give a flying f**k for the needs of defence as a whole.
The story may be true, the story may be complete nonsense but the fact remains, when there is an opportunity to play politics, left or right don’t care if the only casualty is defence.
