"At an obscenely delayed event I attended last year, a small, piqued man came on the mic to explain that the wait was due to 'what can only be described as a massive cock-up.' The tragicomic line came back to me while reading of the apparent misplacement of Ministry of Defence assets. Some £6.3bn of equipment has simply vanished. Adding to the farce was the BBC’s title for the story, which described MPs as 'alarmed' by the news. Yes, well, one would hope." (07/09/11)
