    The Pensions Thief is visiting the boys in Baghdad; lucky timing, or anything to displace the Tories from the front pages?

    You know he's worried when he tries to come over as 'the friend to our boys'.
  2. Anything is better than a buch of tory idiots on the front page!

    That's the whole point of the exercise - a spoiler because Cameron's side have come out with some sensible policy ideas.

    After all it's not as if Gordon B had anything to do with sending us to Iraq in the first place, is it?
  6. If he didn't go out and visitg everybody would be moaning that he hadn't, doesn't really have a chance does he?

    It's the timing - he's planned this purely to take the limelight away from the Conservatives. You can't go on one of these trips at the drop of a hat.
  8. It would be news indeed if he had gone to Basra rather than more secure Baghdad. Just a thought, if he stays 24 hours, does he qualify for a medal?
  9. :? Browns gang are cutting down the Brit Army numbers. Funny old world the Australians are enlarging theirs I wonder why? do the Aussies know what Nu Liabor dont? :?
  10. I notice that the Defence Secretary Browne walking like a wee dug behind him looking lost as usual.Does that man ever smile or is he banned from smiling at all.
  11. What you have to realise is that there is always an election coming up when the armed forces get lots of Register to Vote forms AND the PM comes to visit.

    This is all bollocks anyway...
  12. Yes, he really does mean it. And is happy to be there.
  13. Can someone have a word with his escort and leave the idiot out there?
  14. I hope that guy in the Photo shaking hands with him counted his fingers afterwards.
