Any chance of some more kit?
I have just read this from the BBC on Tony Blair's visit to Afghanistan. We already know that he communicates with his commanders in the field by the press megaphone, we also know that the only way they think they can reply is also by the press megaphone. You can read my article on the subject here.
It is just a bit of a shame Tony has only just noticed.
Having said that I like this quote:
"So what do you do?" Tony Blair asked one of the snipers, lined up to represent the garrison for a 90-minute trip to Camp Bastion.
He looked down at his long-barrelled rifle, shrugged as if to say "what do you think?"
No, go on Tony, tell us what you think a sniper does with a snipers rifle?
