London, Dec.9 (ANI): Britain's former chief of army staff, Gen. (retired) Sir Richard Dannat has said that Prime Minister Gordon Brown was clueless about developments in Afghanistan.

Fifty-eight-year-old General Dannatt claimed that it took two years for Brown to finally "get it".

He told the Daily Star that Brown had failed to grasp the importance of defeating the Taliban.

It was the second time the general has attacked the PM over his handling of Our Boys in Helmand.

The ex-Chief of the General Staff slammed Downing Street in July saying a lack of helicopters was putting lives at risk.

He retired in September but has refused to step down quietly.

He has joined the Tories as their military adviser and has become a thorn in Brown's side. (ANI)
