Sky’s Glen O’Glaza doesn’t seem to have enjoyed himself on the 44 hour Basra-Kabul round trip. He questions the wisdom of Gordon’s media handlers in organising a schedule which made it difficult for broadcasters to file a story. Not much point in a photo-op without being able to send back photos… Beau Bo D’Or’s take on the trip for Channel 4 made Guido smile. Press play.
UPDATE : According to information in the comments Gordon didn’t fly out on Hercules and risk using the transport he deems appropriate for the squaddies. Courage?
