We have the fag end of a war in Iraq 'playing out', a full blown war in Afghanistan and sabre rattling towards Iran and the government decide to do this. I keep expecting Brian Rix to pop out of the wardrobe clutching a pair of parliamentary pink knickers and with his trousers around his ankles. You really could not make this up. I was not in favour of either war because both were unnecessary but if the troops are there then we should be supporting them. That 'we' includes the shower of hypocritical shits in government who seem determined to play lip service with the USA by fighting the war on the cheap.Surely MP's can do the honourable thing: form a company and go out there in the front line if they want war. The queues to receive the first coffin of an MP killed in action will be ten deep and miles long to pay their 'respects'. Open top landrovers, '70's safari suits and pointy sticks as weapons to equip this specialised honourable company. Pot noodles and tizer as rations: 'The Royal Regiment of the Disreputables'.

I completely agree, I think it's appalling.

Almost every week we are hearing about another young life lost in action in Afghanistan, and this is the recognition, respect and thanks they are given?

The sooner this bunch of muppets are out of office the better. To paraphrase an ex boss of mine, are we running a country here or "playing at shops"...
