To be honest I don't see the point of a "armed forces minister", I actually don't see the point of a shadow minister for 'peace and disarmament' really either.

Wasn't it once called Defence?

Some posts are really useful like that Mental Health shadow minister as it becomes probably one of the biggest killers in this country and yet is still treated with disdain.

So if he didn't have a shadow armed forces minister on the 10th Nov, that would be OK would it in the bizarre world of the Daily Mail? and, again, it would be in order not to have one on the 12th, presumably?

BUT ITS AN OUTRAGE NOT TO HAVE ONE ON THE 11TH!!!!!!!

Or as they've been known for centuries diplomats. Which has escaped Corbyn and his supporters who believe diplomacy is a new radical idea that the political elite war mongers have never thought of before.

Response to Mess Treez post - I hadn't realised we'd flipped a page.

Did he appoint one just to appease the Mail?

Indeed. Its like his comments on NATO about how he'd hope he wouldnt have to guaruntee defending another member because diplomacy would mean it didnt come to that.

Like nobody had considered the idea before...
