Bill Rammell meets the troops! SHF on tour?

#1
AF Minister Bill Rammell has been visiting the boys and girls in AFG. Apparently an air force type mentioned to the minister and assembled press-pack:

"The work we do involves incident reaction, such as getting to injured people on the ground. We are also involved with freight movement and troop insertion. It's not uncommon to be fired upon while on a mission.

Now the job of the SHF is very much a thankless one and they do indeed also serve who "merely" fly eveything in and everything out. They are flying often to technical limits. Their equipment has to be black-nastied together and availability must be a nightmare.

However as the underlined section shows, they can still find time to indulge in irony!!

SHF probably do their best, operating within their limits of manpower, spares and airframe age.

The freeloading Rammell - one of four ministers - has a Parliamentary majority of 472 and is predicted to be heavily defeated in the next election :D :D :D

He is also pig-ignorant and responsible titularly at least for a lot of people walking around with BA stuck on their names but a MacDonald's badge with nae stars stuck tae his chest!

I am staggered by the amount of interest the name: Rammell - engenders on this site.

Back to sleep posters. Oh! sorry - no-one knew who he was! Silly me.
