RAF Blonde Bombshell Mocks Gordon Brown’s Leadership

A month after Gordon Brown appeared at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (on the day Eric Joyce resigned)  he was followed yesterday by General Stanley McChrystal, the US commander in Afghanistan.

General McChrystal called for the war to be prosecuted  vigourously with more resources.  Flight Lieutenant Victoria Anderton told the general

“… can I say how much more confidence I have now in my chain of command than I had after Prime Minister Gordon Brown was here a couple of weeks ago”.

That she would say that so bluntly, and the room would dissolve into laughter, shows that Gordon Brown has become widely despised by members of the armed forces.

She is off to Kandahar, to serve Queen and country…

          yes, maybe he can drag Ireland into some new wars just to show his respect for their neutrality.

          Or maybe not, as if his kids have Irish passports,it’s better to send some brits off to get killed. ( and keep Euan safe to become leader of our next generation of politicians )

          • One flew over the No 10 Bunker says:

            He becomes a Catholic then surprise surprise! from someone who demands privacy for his kids we suddenly find out that they have Irish passports and that occurs just before a critical referendum as well from which he would beneifit hugely.

            Will the Irish fall for it. Probably.

            The thought of that bitch slotgob as Mrs president though? Come on you Irish don’t wish this on yourselves.(or us)

          Tony Blair is Scottish.

          • Sukyspook says:

            On paper, once upon a time, Bliar might have been Scottish. However, like Brown, these “people” have no loyalty to any country (just to banksters) as both are much-espoused GLOBALISTS, working for rich men behind the scenes for one-world-government.

            I’m not being flippant, or merely a tin-foil hat wearer – THIS IS REAL.

            This video is titled “Total Proof of the New World Order” and was posted this morning once again to remind those of us who scoff at such a thing.

            and just search Gordon Brown new world order on youtube and you can watch him openly – IN THE LAMESTREAM MEDIA – annouce it himself.

            I spit on your tin-foil hats!

        Gordon Brown is scum, he and his party were responsible for sending the forces out to Iraq and Afghanistan but he despises them and won’t fund the kit that they need.

        Well Gordon, there’s quite a number of people in the forces, they have quite a number of family members and relatives and most of them are entitled to vote, so it will be payback time next May.

      Fred Goodwin's Duck Palace says:

      More interesting will be the NATO negotiations if Bliar is involved.
      For someone so keen on wars he will be at the head of an EU fast pulling out of Vietghanistan. Some amusing footwork there no doubt.

      And those who watch the Daily Show will know that McChrystal is not the squeaky clean friend of the forces this impressionable brave young lady might hope.

      He was at the heart of the shocking Pat Tillman scandal

      WASHINGTON (AP) — The parents of slain Army Ranger and NFL star Pat Tillman voiced concerns Tuesday that the general who played a role in mischaracterizing his death could be put in charge of military operations in Afghanistan.
      In a brief interview with The Associated Press, Pat Tillman Sr. accused Lt. Gen. Stanley McChrystal of covering up the circumstances of the 2004 slaying.

      “I do believe that guy participated in a falsified homicide investigation,” Pat Tillman Sr. said.


      Compared to Brown though the greenest squaddie or T.A. weekender would have more insight and empathy for the soldiers plight and the situation on the ground.

      It’s tragic this unwinnable farce is going to grind on for years if not decades getting more unpopular with each passing day and death.
      Hoping things can only get better is not a strategy.

          Great comment on the Times’ website from a serving officer. He gave her a kicking because she will be based far from the front line, in a secure area, running some kind of Tornado admin on a laptop.

          And there is no way she should have spoken out like that. No discipline at all.

          The RAF is stuffed full of lightweight middle class birds. I know of two who were on loan to the Royals. Praised to the sky by all concerned and the (then) defence secretary even turned up to a leaving drinks for one of them.

          When I asked what this latter-day Boudicca actually did, I was told she was ‘ a kind of PA’ to a very senior RAF boss.

          All part of Labour’s plan to ‘change the face’ of public institutions. Teaching assistants with no qualifications and lightweight career dollies in the Forces.

        Difficult area? Why so? Well my spidey sense tells me that when a politician is unwilling to pronounce on a topical subject of the day, it is *not* because they know nothing. Keerist they think they know everything. Nope, it’s more often because they fear a personal price may be paid – that they fear a petard lies in wait.

        Bradshaw seemed very able to comment on the “right wing” blogs spreading lies about Gordon’s pill popping despite saying he had not been aware of them – yeah right.

        http://www.notbornyestreday.org is not a right wing blog, like guido, it is just anti hypocrisy and lying b@stards on all political hue.

        Bradshaw just looked like a tit and people will remember his support of Gordon’s lies. When it does finally emerge that Gordon’s specific dietary restrictions of no Chianti, ripe avocado’s and cheese are a strong indicator (recognised by any GP) that he is taking MAOI anti-depressants all the New Labour top brass will be caught in the lie.

        If a prime minister is taking medication for a physical ailment like arthritis, the electorate doesn’t need to know. However, in this case, MAOI is a very strong drug only administered in cases of acute depression where the normal SRII’s are no longer effective and seriously effects the mental rationale of the patient. In that case, the electorate does need to know if the prime minister does have a mental illness that could seriously compromise vital decisions taken on our behalf.

        This is very serious and the media do need to get to the bottom of this by asking if Gordon Brown does have specific dietary requirements and why.

    Is there any stratum of society that this oafish mob has yet to turn against them? A few more senior religious figures could stick the sandal in, I suppose. Haven’t heard much from lollipop ladies or gravediggers. But pretty much everyone else seems to follow the prevailing mood on this blog, that the game’s up.

    Sadly, Flt. Lt. Anderton had better watch her back. Has the spin machine unearthed any adolescent misdemeanours to fling at her? Scurrilous rumours that she once failed to polish her boots appropriately? And what odds on a solo posting to some far flung, dangerous outpost….

    O/T Sorry

    From con home / Guardian

    Has this neutered the threat of any ‘personal’ questions from Marr or similar over the next week?

    “David Cameron took the unusual step of rallying to Gordon Brown’s defence today as he described the BBC’s decision to grill the prime minister on his health as inappropriate… In an interview with LBC radio host Nick Ferrari, Cameron disagreed with the BBC’s insistence that asking the prime minister whether he was on medication was a “legitimate” line of questioning… Cameron said: “I watched it and I must say, I didn’t think it was appropriate. Look, I think journalists should feel free to ask any question they like and I think politicians should feel free to say, ‘Look, do you know what, I’m not going to answer that one’.”

          Would be an interesting gambit, were DC to say (for example) “you know what, to quell speculation about all this, I admit, I smoked myself stupid a few times back in the late 80s. Did the odd line, too. Not something I’m proud of now, just everyone was doing it back then. There. I’ve levelled with you.”

          Puts the whole thing to bed, nice n tidy. And any ZaNuLab hysterics will (a) blow over by the GE and (b) only serve to throw a harsh spotlight upon Browngabe’s non-denial of Marr’s fluffed question last Sunday.

    Without defending Brown one bit, I thought her sucking up to foreign top brass at the expense of her own side showed more than a little naïveté.

    I’m not sure she has done anyone any favours with her remarks. The following comment came from the Times Online where many of the posts share similar sentiments.

    As a Royal Marine Colour Sergeant I’m not surprised that yet another middle class RAF Officer thinks they are the voice of the fighting men and women.

    It’s a shame that some of my fellow Marines who have been seriously injured have to listen to a service woman who will be spending her tour in a secure environment and not on the line or on patrol where danger is ever present.

    The very nature of war has no place for second guessing, the Flight Lieutenant will witness errors not just from politicians but from all men and woman of the forces that result in death.

    If she wants to help, concentrate on your command and get them ready for battle don’t make sarcastic comments that only distract from the very hard work our serices are doing!

    If Blair Becomes Pres

    Pres Tony: Old woman.
    Dennis: Man.
    Pres Tony: Man, sorry. What knight lives in that castle over there?
    Dennis: I’m 37.
    Pres Tony: What?
    Dennis: I’m 37. I’m not old.
    Pres Tony: Well I can’t just call you “man”.
    Dennis: Well you could say “Dennis”.
    Pres Tony: I didn’t know you were called Dennis.
    Dennis: Well you didn’t bother to find out did you?
    Pres Tony: I did say sorry about the “old woman”, but from behind you looked…
    Dennis: What I object to is you automatically treat me like an inferior.
    Pres Tony: Well I am The President.
    Dennis: Oh, President eh? Very nice. And how’d you get that, eh? By exploiting the workers. By hanging on to outdated Socialist dogma which perpetuates the economic and social differences in our society.

    Pres Tony: I am your President.
    Woman: Well I didn’t vote for you.
    Pres Tony: You don’t vote for The EU President.
    Woman: Well how’d you become president then?
    [Angelic music plays... ]
    Pres Tony: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Tony, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why I am your President.
    Dennis: [interrupting] Listen, strange women lyin’ in ponds distributin’ swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

    -[Pres Tony Hits Man]
    Dennis: Oh, but you can’t expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.

    -[Pres Tony Hits Man]
    Dennis: Oh but if I went ’round sayin’ I was Emperor, just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they’d put me away.

    -[Pres Tony Hits Man]
    Dennis: Come and see the violence inherent in the system. Help! Help! I’m being repressed!
    Pres Tony: Bloody peasant!
    Dennis: Oh, what a giveaway! Did you hear that? Did you hear that, eh? That’s what I’m on about! Did you see him repressing me? You saw him, Didn’t you?

      What exactly is your beef with the military? We discussed the military covenant before. As a “tool of Government”, we volunteered to provide a service to the country. That the Govt has completely failed its military types does not open the door for idiots like you to “have a go”.

      Now, tell me a little bit about you.

    You cannot compare the defence of our nation by a conscript army to the invasion and occupation of a sovereign nation.

    NOBODY asked these people to join up. If the conditions don’t suit – TOUGH SHIT!

    We are not at threat of invasion, we cannot use the military on the streets. We need no more than our nuclear weapons. Personally, I’d abolish all armed forces, they are now a tool of oppression not freedom and liberation – despite what the tabloid hacks and emotional fucktards might claim.

      The armed forces keep us safe; they always have and they always will, although at times their political leadership is crass and inept.

      I think we’ll abolish you instead.

        You see, its this neandethal thought process which attracts many to the forces. Mostly undereducated teenagers from deprived backgrounds who have little choice.

        These people do not know or fully understand what is expected of them, many look at it as being like a video game or movie – until the reality hits them. By this time its usually too late and bravado takes over.

        Someone commented on the invasion of Germany, frankly, this is a laughable argument as the circumstance in every context could not be more different.

        We do not need an offensive military at all. Its a drain on our resources and is largely redundant except for being used as a geopolitical tool of our ruling elite.

        This emotional nonsense the press are full of these days doesn’t touch the sides as it is utterly banal.

        If we abolish these unnecessary insitutions then in theory we will be saving many of their lives too.

        That isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

So its clear – a “Pilot Officer” doesn’t need to be a “pilot” or a “Flying officer” to actually be able to fly anything other than a desk- the giveaway is whether the said officer wears a “pair of wings” on the left breast of their uniform jacket/jumper etc. She could be in any of the other branches of the “raff” i.e. Administration;RAF Police;Medical etc etc

    In normal times a low-ranking serving military officer openly dissing the PM in front of a senior allied commander would be a serious breach of discipline … however since the politicians have broken the military covenant (duty of care, lies, spin, smearing CGS) then presumably its now fair game…

    Tin foil hat on though – who thinks that Gordo buggering up the economy and getting fucking up UK beyond hope, is all part of Mandy’s long-term plan to get us into the Euro and Blair as ultimate EU overlord? We in UK used to value our historic insitutions (trashed) police (trashed) democracy (trashed) common sense (trashed) finanical services (trashed) and armed forces (most difficult of all to bugger up but give them two wars to keep em busy).

    Once you’ve fucked the country to this extent with constitutional vandalism, being run by Brussels looks like an improvement…?

    That our PM is so openly derided says everything you need to know about Brown;

    useless,worthless,laughable,odious,obnoxious and totally off his rocker.

    Can you imagine any pilot saying this in a public forum in any other country – Brown has no currency and must be dropped from a very fast moving bomber onto a barren piece of land in the middle of nowhere – how about Afghanistan?

    I was recently told by a serving member of the British Army that the MOD has refused to give out any information about the number of Taliban killed by British troops in battles and skirmishes in Afghanistan for fear of offending the Muslim community in the UK. Plenty of coverage of dead Brits who are flown home in Union Jack draped coffins but absolutely no information or pictures of dead or wounded Taliban. Thank you uncle Bob!

    I am absolutly shocked and appalled by the utter contempt by some of the numerous comments on this board about the men and women who sacrifice their lives to defend a nation! Outragious!! Telling that some here wouldn’t have the slightest degree what it’s like to stand for something above your jadeded selves. Is Prime Mins. Brown lacking of the fortitude to strike against Islamic extremism? Probably, but this brave woman has more juevos and moral courage to stand for her fellow comrads in uniform even at the peril of being condoned by her superiors.

    What happen to the British spirit that conquered the seven seas of the world during the 18th century? The country that defended an isle against the forces of facism. At least their is one who will stand post for your freedoms.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
