'Geoff Hoon spent nearly £560,000 of Ministry of Defence money on modern art while British soldiers were dying in Iraq and Afghanistan through lack of equipment.Has there ever been a worse Secretary of State for Defence than Hoon? Well Bob Ainsworth maybe... When will ex-Labour Ministers be made to account for their crimes?
The former Defence Secretary wasted the huge sum on 15 pieces of abstract art to hang on the walls of his department between 2003 and 2005.
Meanwhile, the Labour government faced criticism for putting servicemen and women in danger by scrimping on essential kit such as helicopters, radios and night goggles, and forcing their families to live in rundown military homes.'
Thaks to My Thoughts, My Country for the spot.
