spider9....No criticism of our military whatsoever but a Prime Minister flogging arms next door to Libya, a Deputy Prime Minister on holiday forgetting hes in charge of the country, and a country run by 'jobsworths' civil servants in their absence are my targets.

While people like you were no doubt sitting around thinking your cynical thoughts, other people - politicians and civil servants amongst them - were carefully preparing a plan to send military aircraft into a highly volatile situation in utmost secrecy.
It worked perfectly, with no loss of life or injury involved. That it did so is because there were indeed risk assessments, as there should have been, and attention was paid to safeguarding the health and safety of all concerned.

spider9 ...Why do you feel a 'Deputy' is not allowed a holiday - and what part of your brain actually thinks he's 'in charge of the country' anyway?...
We can only comment on what we have seen, studied and observed from the extensive coverage given. It appears that Cameron and Clegg share the responsibility of running the country. It is a system that has been used by previous governments due to the vast diversity of problems facing heads of government. In this instance Clegg was left in charge while Cameron was out of the country click here-'Forgot'-He-Was-in-Charge-of-Country-20110224-ktbcnc Descending into personal insults is a sure sign of a person struggling to formulate a rational argument.
