"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Troops To Kandahar 2

A highly critical article in the Telegraph about the movement of British troops from Helmand to Kandahar (see Wednesday) draws further attention to Brown's petulant and cowardly attitude towards our Armed Forces.
"Throughout Gordon Brown's troubled tenure as Prime Minister, one constant feature has been his antipathy towards our Armed Forces. But as he enters what, by rights, should be his final week in office, the sulphurous whiff of a particularly galling betrayal is polluting the Downing Street air: for Mr Brown appears to be doing his level best to lay the foundations for another humiliating capitulation by the British military."
Service chiefs and British Intelligence also get a kicking for good measure.

The inquest into the deaths of Lt Col Rupert Thorneloe & Trooper Joshua Hammond   resumed this morning.  The lying, shameless toad Brown should hang his head.  I note that Blair is back campaigning for Labour again in the South-East: I hope local bakeries have had a run on custard pies though I suppose he'll be well protected by his armed bodyguards to avoid scenes like those in, I think, Thailand - where protesters attempted to have him indicted for war crimes.

As an aside, I don't seem to be seeing or hearing much in the news about the postal votes going awol either.
