Why would you want to goad a soldier and potentially compromise security at a military base?
Nigel is a twat. The gate guard needs a bit of a briefing about what his response should be depending on the threat level but Nigel is definitely a twat.
And that is putting it politely!
Yes, but that's all he is, does he deserve to have a loaded weapon pointed at him, does he have to be arrested?
Nope, this is not some Communist state, yet. Let Nigel enjoy the freedoms we as military folk have assured him.
