Punitive air and naval raids when a spanking is called for, would be the best solution IMO. They could take the old HMS Belfast out for s spin to bombard port facilities.

Shhh! Everybody thinks that HMS Belfast's absence from the Olympics posters was down to airbrushing.

Can't we send all the Somalians in London back to have a nice talk with them?

What happened to that couple which was taken on a surprise holiday excursion? I remember the husband had an unfortunate accident with a machine gun. I bet his wife's ******** must be about the size of a dinner plate by now. Lucky tart, I bet she's loving it.

IMHO it would be almost un-bloody British to miss a chance to get stuck into the fuzzywuzzys.....

Well, with Afghan soon coming to an end (supposedly) it only makes sense to keep an eye on potential punch ups to keep the Army busy long into the future. It's been a long time since the British Army had no "shooting wars" on their hands (if ever?) yet it could be a real possibility after 2015 unless we pull our thumb out and quickly find a Jonny Foreigner to bully.

A deployment to Africa to knock a few fuzzywuzzy's heads together would be quite "retro" and it's not as if we need to fear a "Blackhawk down" scenario as we lack any Helicopters for them to shoot down over the Bakara Market anyway.
