General Sir Richard Dannatt revisited - yet again

Afghanistan here I come! - An infantryman modelling the new British Army 2006-07 Season 'away match' team uniform as designed by General Sir Richard 'Kill them all. God will know his own' Dannatt.

From the Great Man's own lips

"It is said that we live in a post Christian society. I think that is a great shame. The broader Judaic-Christian tradition has underpinned British society. It underpins the British army."

Which presumably means all those Gurkhas and Sikhs and all those other races and creeds who served in the British Army and fought and died
, often with astonishing bravery and commitment, for our 'Judaic-Christian tradition' were right Muppets.

Rifleman Tul Bahadur Pun, VC

It really is quite difficult to overstate the ignorance, and arrogance, of that man.
