The shameful evacuation of Pen Farthing’s pets from Afghanistan
The Spectator says two stories on the Afghan evacuation today combine to leave me full of bewildered rage.
This is not a piece about the Whitehall processes around Pen Farthing’s charter flight, though I don’t think it takes much to listen to either Defence Secretary Ben Wallace or General Sir Nick Carter talk about this and infer that they’re uncomfortable with the time and resources they’ve had to devote to getting cats and dogs out of Kabul.
Nor is it a piece about the logistics around Farthing and his plane, its hold and the rest of it.
