Who's been a naughty boy, then?

Well, it seems as if it's the married third most senior officer at the army's Headquarters in Northern Ireland, who is now facing a court martial for, amongst other antics, posing in front of a webcam whilst 'stripping' for his girl-friend. More seriously, in my view, are allegations that he revealed sensitive military secrets to the lady in question in numerous e-mails. Tut, tut.

Serious as this whole matter is, it does have its ribald side. The version of this story on the web doesn't, unfortunately, carry the images which appear in the print newspaper today - when I first glanced at them I thought he looks uncannily like Peter Sellars in the 'Inspector Clouseau' films.
