British personnel killed in conflicts since World War II should be honoured with a memorial, according to shadow defence secretary Liam Fox.
Surely there are more important things for parliament to be worried about, such as preventing more casualties.
I suspect that I shall be in a minority on this site, and in no way do I wish to devalue anyone's sacrifice/loss, however I feel that if we do this, we are going to create a list that will just go on for ever.
If we want to have a new memorial, and I'm not anti that, then lets have one for a specific event. I would like to see a Northern Ireland memorial, for those who gave their lives there, for instance.
To my mind the Cenotaph memorialises all dead soldiers, regardless of when killed. Plus it's right outside Downing St, so TCB sees it every time he leaves his house.
PB - preparing for incoming.
