We’ve seen too many appointments in this government of external people where it’s all been about Gordon Brown’s PR. General Dannatt’s an experienced figure and should rightly be working alongside government. I’m always suspicious of government’s motives when it does things like this.

He has had to do another interview explaining that he doesn’t really think it is a PR gimmick now he knows he is going to be working for a future Tory government. We are at war with Eurasia, we have always been at war with Eurasia…
