Following Ainsworth's dubious contribution to the Nimrod inquest is there not something ironic and just if he is in charge when Haddon-Cave reports in October?

Those of us who were in the room when the families were conducting a press conference immediately after the findings of the Nimtod Inquest were made public, will NEVER forget the moment that Ainsworth chose to rubbish the conclusions of the Oxford Coroner.

Ainsworth had not read the findings because the print wasn't dry, but he chose to stick his marxist oar in within minutes of the Coroner finishing speaking. He is quite simply a buffoon.

I very much look forward to the Haddon Cave report.

Someone get me another Defence Secretary, be ready for October 2009......

Ainsworth isn't really an anagram of clueless knobjockey, although I can see what you're driving at.

Ainsworth is an anagram of a worn shit, though - and a short win, too!

Well, given the monumental ar$e-kicking dished out to nuLabor in the European Parliamentary elections (as well as the UK local elections), Ainsworth won't be arond long enough for the paint to dry on his parking space.....

At long last Europe is finally seeing through the nonsense of socialism. Hopefully it'll soon become as much of a historical curiousity as Communism now is, eh pr00ne?

I saw something in one of the Sunday papers about Ainsworth being under investigation over the Mastiff contract and not declaring an interest following meeting with management of the company? could be wrong

The Tories are an unknown look at the 1981 defence review! I don't think Labour will have a majority to form a govt next election but Lib Dems could be a dark horse. I don't seriously believe we'll have a libdem govt however if there are lots of independants/UKIP/BNP/Green etc voted in as well it will make forming a govt with a working majority very tricky and a coalition will muddy the waters consideribly

Maybe I am slow off the mark but I have heard it said that, even in MoD, Mr Ainsworth goes by the monicker of...

"Aint Worth Sh!t"

(though, I susepct, not to his face)

Now, that made me laugh!

Maybe he'll get a New Labour luvvy makeover and get told to shave his moustache off.

After yesterday's results he's probably better off reducing the width and standing for the BNP at the next election.

According to Charlie Falconer, that well known example of probity and duty ...

"Bob Ainsworth, for all the sneering in the press, is someone whom his fellow politicians, civil servants and the Armed Services greatly respect."

Only a new leader will bring unity to Labour | Charlie Falconer - Times Online

Shome mishtake shurely....and he's calling for Cyclops to b8gger off!

Whilst I have no admiration for Incapability Brown, the behaviour of his spineless nuLabor cohorts does rather remind one of rats and sinking ships.


El Gordo shouldn't really be carrying the can personally for every (Ains)worthless nuLabor idiot; however, he now needs to do the right thing by pulling the black and yellow and calling a General Election.

read Boris Johnsons piece in yesterdays Daily Telegraph might give you a reason why.

BEagle,

"Hopefully it'll soon become as much of a historical curiousity as Communism now is, eh pr00ne?"


Oh bless, aren't you sweet!

We haven't had a 'socialist' Government in this country since 1979, a few years earlier than that if the truth be told. No bad thing actually.............

Any bets on the date of Cameron's first defence cuts? Thatcher managed at least 11 months in power before she was cutting defence. I reckon he might just beat her.
