Des Browne's dual role

A report in yesterday's Daily Telegraph about the Conservative Party's Forsyth (as in Frederick, the writer) Commission on the Military Covenant. It includes a number of recommendations, including the following:

"Defence Secretary will not hold any other government posts"

Obviously a subtle dig at Des Browne, whose dual role as both Defence and Scottish Secretary has come in for a lot of stick. The pledge obviously doesn't prevent a future Conservative government combining the role of Scottish Secretary with another Cabinet post...
