All General Officer and Senior Officer Ranks are political appointments. ie. Anyone above Field Grade Rank.

Having said that, the new DAS is on a hiding to nowhere, which ever way the plebs' take him. Damn him now, or later, he's bound to cop it. I have noted of late he is taking calls, is communicative and seems an obliging cove. To my way of thinking, it would be better to see how he goes in the early stages and judge him on performance than to pre-empt any long and expected standards associated with incoming people of this caliber.

I'm guessing any leeway given shouldn't exceed by Easter at least. I'd be keeping a keen eye on his "handlers" however. Lets hope he represents an illumination at the end of the tunnel.
