As yet another serviceman is killed and a corrupt and smelly Non-Government reels from disaster to farcical theatre, as we fall under the Franco/German Axis and watch our politicians wriggle off the expenses hook, one little apparent diamond of hope turns out to be cheap glass. A "cast iron" promise is casually, even flippantly, "cast" aside. A referendum on the Lisbon facade of an all powerful, undemocratic state is all but in place and we just blithely accept it.
Shame on you Britons who will buy poppies, gather to remember lest we forget whilst happily forgetting why so many, many thousands died for democracy and freedom. A comment, recently on this blog offered that life under Labour is preferable to that under an undemocratic EU Federal State. It would now seem that we are condemned to both. For my part I consider David Cameron's lack of leadership and openness on Europe proves what I have, until now, fought not to accept. They really are all the bloody same.
We really could do with all out troops back home, we sure as hell need them.
