Who gets their corner offices?
It seems to me this is not really solving the problem. I agree the idea of getting the services to work closer together is long overdue (and a lesson to learn all over Whitehall), but putting the operational command under a single 4-star officer, will lead to the same self-serving they currently have. Not to mention an RAF officer commanding an amphibious landing, or RN chap telling the army how to run a land operation. Who's going to tell them to play nice?
The only winner in this is the mandarin with the cheshire cat grin, who gets the big office they've been eyeing up for ages!
Coat - for the chiefs long walk!
