Elite Royal Marine commandos were twice ready to launch a critical assault on the gang who had captured Paul Chandler, 59, and his wife Rachel, 55.
But each time Mr Ainsworth did not order the Royal Marines to move in. Nearly seven weeks later, the couple are still being held for a £4million ransom by the pirates.
In a statement Bob said "Look I am a cunt who has been promoted past my abilities. Anyway I have far more important things to do, like re-arranging the toy soldiers on my plush desk and fiddling my expenses claims."
"Besides if we shoot the pirates, we will be left open to being taken to court under the Human Rights Act. Hopefully we can find a way to bribe them via the back door, maybe give the poor darlings asylum in say Bradford or some northern town that is hideously white."....
Some commentator on a previous bit of Bob mockery, pointed out he looked like Blakey from On the Buses, as a fan of that series I thought some more mockery of Bob "the knob" Ainsworth has to be done....
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.
