Armed Forces Day? P*ss take or good idea? i am all for the lads/lasses being appreciated for the sacrifices they make, but what pisses me off is politicians jumping on the bandwagon. if todays papers are to be believed then instead of a day to be enjoyed in whatever way is seen fit by those making the sacrifice, ie a long w/e with loved ones, we have: a day of fun(!) in the barracks, que two weeks graft making the sh*t hole look habitable, followed by blokes trying to look interested. why dont we give the lads what they want, time at home with their loved ones!
