I set this up as a protest against Bob Ainsworth, its not a bash at him for being a member of any political party but due to his being inept at his job.
On his watch as Armed Forces Minister, we have seen the troops let down with delays in helicopters getting to the battlefield, problems with supply of kit including body armour.
Whilst soldiers come back from a warzone in body bags, Bob wastes his time chasing soldiers through the courts to reduce payments given to them for fighting in a war and being injured in a war that he is in charge of.
He has even gone so far as to claim in The Commons that supply problems were "bollocks" and then blamed the public for problems claiming that they were defeatist.
Bob "the knob" Ainsworth in his own words.
"I'm such a victim, people attack me over my accent, my moustache... and because I'm no intellectual."
A description of Bob Ainsworth from The Times.
Bob Ainsworth is one of those people who should never rise above deputy. I am told that people are snobby about him but I am just confused. Every time I see him — and it happened again yesterday — I cannot believe that he is the Defence Secretary. How did this man, stodgy as porridge, inspiring as a cabbage, get the top job? It feels wrong, as if he were taking part in a job-swap reality TV programme that has gone horribly wrong.
