The new, politically correct British Army seems to be ready for everything except fighting a war. As "Spiked" asks: "Which British institution describes itself as a 'broad-based, diverse, people-oriented organisation', whose central aim is to 'develop network-enabled capabilities designed to achieve a range of strategic effects'; as a 'major provider of training and education', which 'makes a substantial contribution to the government's drive to raise standards of education and skills'; as an 'exemplary employer in improving the literacy, language and numeracy skills of its personnel'? An educational body, perhaps? Some local council?" Rather amazingly, it is the official decription of the British Army.
