BRITISH LOYALTY!



The death of young Ivan Cameron will have touched us all. Bringing a child into the world is a big step for parents. To have that child born seriously disabled is dreadfull. To then have the child grow and become a loving family member, who needs total support 24/7, giving the best that parents can to ensure decent quality of life, knowing that one day that life will be cut short, takes courage and fortitude and a deep well of stamina. My heart goes out to the Camerons.

My heart also goes out to the parents of loved ones who make the ultimate sacrifice for a country that does not really appreciate them, and sees them as a necessary evil. On the very day that Ivan Cameron touched our hearts, four service men dies in Afghanistan.

The same MPs who suspended business in Westminster, in support of the Camerons, took the decision to send our forces to Iraq and Afghanistan. The same MPs who now condone these forces operating in Afghanistan in equipment that is frankly a bloody joke in this day and age. The same MPs that are bending over backwards to prevent the public from seeing the expenses that they snuffle at the trough of the tax payer.The same MPs that sent our forces to war to invade a sovereign country on a "thats it then." Three words that condemed 10s of thousands of people to death and many more to a lifetime of mutilation humiliation poverty and pain.

I am sure it was the right thing to do to suspend the business of the house for Ivan. His father is one of their own and will value that gesture of solidarity. What a great pity that the under paid under protected men and women, we ask to put their lives on the line for us cannot feel that solidarity. They feel betrayed and hung out to dry. The butt of endless jokes from American troops who are incredulous that soldiers have to endure what ours do in 2009.

When it come to digging deep and looking after our own we fall short time after time. There are veterans of these campaigns now living in poverty and misery because of a lack of after care by the MOD.



As the father of a serving officer who's son has has served in Iraq, I cannot begin to explain how it feel every time the phone rings or someone rings the door bell. You hear a car door slamming in the street at 3 in the morning and hold your breath praying that no one rings your bell. 328 families have had that dreaded knock in the Iraq and Afghanistan campaign.

149 from Afghanisatan.

And 179 from iraq.

"British workers for British jobs," a cheap nasty throwaway remark by a cheap nasty PM. Who when it suits him pops up in Iraq purely to have his photograph taken and flash his insane rictus smile at all he meets. When it comes down to the wire his remark is betrayed for the utter posturing lie it is just like the New Labour party.

I fear for our country now that I can see what is down the road, knowing how cynical and utterly ruthless these greedy career politicians are. They really do not give a shit that the UK is about to enter one of the darkest periods of our history, they have stuck there heads in the trough and the bunker mentality has now taken root at the heart of the government. They are in a gold lined teflon bubble. Damn them all to eternal hell.

I know the feeling well, along with when driving the news comes on the car radio and the words are "another soldier has been killed...". Sometimes I have to stop the car to calm the beating of my heart.

Thats exactly what happened to me at Harhill on the M8 Rosie. Radio 2 had an annoucmement of an incident where my lad was, and I pulled in to the services in a panic. After much phoning I got tot talk to him, and was reassured, to many do not get that reassurance. It would be utterly horrible to hear news on the media before you were informed, but it has happened.
