Is Des Browne sitting on his elbow?

James Cleverly has highlighted a truly spectacular display of incompetence by the Secretary of State for Defence, Des Browne. It seems Browne has penned an article for the Guardian in which he says that 2 Para, rather than 3 Para, are deployed in Afghanistan.

His article tries to make a general point that everything in the British Army is just peachy and troops are actually very well funded - funny, but I'm sure the other Brown has been slowly cutting their budgets. As James quite rightly says "if you don't even know who you are sending around the world you should really ask yourself if you are in the right job."
