MoD head of procurement quits to "fulfil his dream"

At a time when the troops fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan - not to mention their families at home - need all the help they can get, guess what? the Army's head of procurement hands in his notice so that he can fulfil his dream of racing a motor car at Le Mans; not even the race in France but the american version at that!
Having spent his time since 2005 drawing up strategies for improving military procurement, equipment and service delivery, the chief quartermaster has decided that, rather than stay and fight to get his plans implemented, he'll run away and race a motor car instead.
Another Government minister with his priorities sorted, then!
