I am about to see eye to eye with the Tories, no it's not a joke but what I'm getting at might still aggravate some of them, probably a lot of them in fact. Not so long ago when Labour were in power it was difficult to pick up a newspaper or tune in to a news bulletin without the Labour Government getting all kinds of abuse from those who accused them of selling out our armed forces. It was a contrived coordinated attack on Labour by the right wing media and high ranking military officers aided and abetted shamefully by trendy left groups like the SSP who appallingly exploited the grieving mothers and fathers of soldiers killed or wounded to attack Labour.
Where are the retired Colonels, Rear Admirals and Chief Flying Officers now as the Army, Navy and RAF are decimated by this Tory/Libdem cabal, they have all gone quite have they not? What happened to the outrage from the Press and TV it was a nightly occurrence with right wing politicians and right wing reporters attacking like hungry sharks. Have I missed something; are soldiers no longer being killed and maimed what happened to the rage against Labour, is it OK to be blown to bits as long as it's a Tory led Government in power?
What hypocrites, how about Salmond running around trying to save British Regiments and British Air bases what a con man independence my Jim Royle . I said at the time and I feel vindicated now, that the complaints were designed to attack the Labour Government and the weapons of choice were dead and injured soldiers who were exploited remorselessly. A bad workman blames his tools and so it was with the Armed Forces, the bellicose elderly Generals and Colonels deliberately turned the blame on the Government to hide the fact that one of the biggest and best equipped armies in the world couldn't beat a group of peasants using single shot rifles which they had to share, one gun between two fighters. They were prepared to blame anyone and anything to avoid the obvious; that is that the British Armed Forces need an enema.
All jobs and positions need to be opened up to talent and an end put to nepotism which has been ripe in the Forces and indeed in our society for far too long, read about the cretin Prince Andrew if you don't believe me. Let me explain why I agree with the Tories. Successive governments have clung to the fiction that Britain is a big player on the world stage and our armed forces reflect that, this ceased to be the case a long time ago but no one in politics has had the nerve to admit it. This Tory Government doesn't have that nerve either but they have made it plain by their actions that Britain is an also ran in the modern world, their ruthless destruction of the military states that clearly, even if they won't come out and say it. I urge them now to finish what they have started by ridding the world of Trident and the rest of the weapons of mass destruction which we don't need. I guess that you along with me can think of lots of ways to spend the hundreds of billions we pay for weapons of war, enough to guarantee full employment, first class education, housing and medical treatment for everyone. Once we have done that we can get started on the class system beginning with Lords, Baronets and Knights of the Garter, then all unelected Royal Parasites and not a penny piece for anyone who does not earn it, that would be a good start wouldn't it?
