‘As the Defence Secretary spoke, there were shouts of “disgrace” and “tell us the truth” from Colonel Ian Brazier and Captain Joe Eastwood – both former soldiers in the Royal Fusiliers – who were protesting about the cuts to the military.
Speaking to reporters outside the conference hall, Col Brazier said he decided to protest because of the “contempt” being shown to the Armed Forces by the Conservatives.
Their intervention will be embarrassing for Mr Hammond, who is currently overseeing major cuts to Army units including the Fusiliers – the regiment of Drummer Lee Rigby, the soldier murdered in the Woolwich terror attack.’ Hopeless Hammond and the Candid Colonel.
Gentlemen, you are needed in the People’s Assembly. Well done on such a dignified stance about such shameful and shabby treatment of your command.
