Browne fights to keep his job as storm over sailors rages on | Uk News | News | Telegraph

Des Browne's ability to survive as Defence Secretary was in serious doubt last night after Tony Blair and a fellow minister cut him adrift by criticising the way the Iran hostages were allowed to sell their stories to the press.

A mistake for sure but compared to the mistakes that this government has made and continues to make that cost troops their lives and limbs it is a minor one. But to Tony getting the PR wrong is a far worse error; he gets to see the headlines, but not the grieving widows.

Couldn't agree more. Asquith was toppled because he didn't supply the army with enough shells. Blair sent our troops into battle without adequate manpower, helicopters, armoured vehicles, weapons, aircraft, ships, boats, clothing, body armour and leadership, to name but a few, yet he remains in power.
