    Last weekend, I was lucky enough to see at first hand the work of Scotland's brave servicemen and women in Afghanistan. The way they, along with troops from across Britain, are helping to build a peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan is truly remarkable.

    You cannot help but admire even the simple achievement of building camps and bases in the hostile environment of Helmand province, where it reaches 50C in the summer, and -25C in the winter. But that's just the beginning: more than 7000 of Britain's troops are out there, day in and day out, putting their lives on the line.

  3. Who wants to see some politician when they're out there? Why don't they give us royalties when we get back. Instead of some sales assistant who sells phones or TVs getting paid more.
