Ministerial letters, leaked to The Sunday Times, show Brown personally overturned earlier Treasury assurances that the Ministry of Defence would be free to spend extra cash on troop-carrying helicopters for Iraq and Afghanistan.
The leaked letters show that Gordon Brown’s outrageous actions, whilst he was Chancellor of the Exchequer, resulted in military chiefs being unable to purchase the new helicopters. Helicopters that should have now been in service in Afghanistan. Helicopters that would have minimised British Troop movements by road. Helicopters that would have undoubtedly avoided countless deaths and limb losses from exposure to the Taliban iEDs.
How the fuck does that unelected, cold blooded, troop maiming, cunt bubble of a prime minister sleep at night?
