Don't expect much in your newspaper, this Saturday morning, about these poor dead soldiers. It's holiday time.
Five more young soldiers sacrificed needlessly this week, three just yesterday, whilst our politicians enjoy their no expense spared holidays. We are at war but you would hardly know it. Better move along here lads, we need more space as this political circus goes nowhere and the death toll mounts.
I am appalled at the cavalier attitude of a Government utterly bereft of competence. As bereft as the families they happily see bereaved. My heart goes out to the families and our very capable armed forces so badly let down. How dare they go on holiday, cretins. I bet Wootton Basset will show more honour and respect.
Billions for bankers, peanuts for the rest of us and an unwinnable and so expensive war carries on aimlessly and stupidly. Jeez but I'm angry. So depressing and pointless. 299 more days of this awful Government? I hope not.
Wooton Bassett Mourns, 7/08/2009.
