Outlandish Claims

According to the Daily Mail, General Sir Richard Shirreff’s book has not gone down well in Whitehall. I love this quote from a “Whitehall source”:
 
‘This guy has made a series of outlandish claims over the years. He’s trying to sell a book, so you have to expect such outbursts.’
 
Presumably that’s why they promoted him to General, knighted him and then made him top dog at NATO.
 
I think it’s a fairly safe bet that Whitehall don’t want you to read his book – which is exactly why I’m going to.
