The ability of the tabloid press to continually plumb the depths of taste and decency is disappointing but not surprising.
Fus Gentle's family have just been on the lunchtime tv news. He was apparently not long out of training - they are questioning whether he should have been sent on ops; the Army have confirmed he was trained. One of them asked whether Bliar would get a weapon and go.
The family's grief and anger is undertandable; I hope they will take comfort in knowing that at 19, Fus Gentle was a better man than Bliar and any of his gang could ever be.
The Mail photo was a disgrace and I will never read that newspaper again. There is simply no comparison between a young man who has died in the service of his nation and a man who has lied to a nation for his own ends.
