Ex-Army chief General Sir Richard Tory Dog-Shagger Dannatt to become Tory defence adviser
General Sir Richard Tory Dog-Shagger Dannatt: profile;
General Sir Richard Tory Dog-Shagger Dannatt is a soldier's soldier whose tenure as head of the Army has been marked by his willingness to embarrass the Government in defending his troops.
Gen Tory Dog-Shagger Dannatt had been at the helm for only two months in October 2006 when he made it clear did not intend to keep quiet in his new job, using an interview in the Daily Mail to accuse the Government of abusing the "military covenant" of mutual protection between a nation and its Army.
Despite having held a series of advisory roles within Whitehall as well as a distinguished array of military postings, the 58-year-old has never been one to toe the line. He has repeatedly embarrassed first Tony Blair and then Gordon Brown by criticising the British mission in Iraq, demanding more money and better equipment for the Army and higher pay for his troops.
However, since his Triumphant Stabbing in the Back of Gordon Brown and receiving the Tory thirty pieces of Silver, Dog-Shagger has been noticeably quiet
Tories may cut defence spending, says Osborne
So, Whither Tory/Lib Dem Cuts, Dog-Shagger?
Why has this noble Dog-Shagger been silent in the face of Real cuts, when he was such an accomplished liar about Labour Government Spending on the Armed Forces?
Could it be anything to do with unlimited access to Batersea Dogs' Home?
