It is clear that the UK purse couldn't afford the commitment that Bliar signed us up for.
The Chilcot Enquiry will serve no one.
Yellow streak Brown will be treated with undeserved reverence. We all know troops have been underfunded, Labour hate the armed forces as they are seen as part of the establishment, as said before they rather spend money on their client state. The families of troops who were killed in poorly protected Land Rovers have urged the Iraq inquiry to challenge yellow streak Brown tomorrow on his funding of front line forces.
They want answers because no one in Government has ever explained why the Snatch Land Rover was not replaced in Iraq and Afghanistan once it became clear that it was vulnerable to roadside bombs.
Was going to war right or wrong this argument could go on all day. Putting aside the fact that Britain probably shouldn't have been in either of these countries. It is clear that the UK purse couldn't afford the commitment that Bliar signed us up for. If we couldn't pay for the equipment required then it is obvious that the deployment needed to be scaled back. The facts are our troops were sent to war and it is the governments responsibility to ensure they have right equipment to do the job, yellow streak Brown should be asked why he has starved our troops of cash, he has been in charge of the purse strings since the start of this war so the buck stops with him;but I think we will be lucky to get an answer because the next question yellow streak Brown answers will be his first.
