Having watched the interview I will say that in my opinion Doug got the best of the debate.
Steven Sakur tried to make some snide remarks along the Lines of Loyalty and Duty and Doug just accepted such as the normal way of life.
Quite refreshing for little old me.
Try this link. Stays on the Hardtalk website indefinitely as far as I can make out. A must for anyone going to Afghan. Good to see the words in his book An Ordinary Soldier spoken by a real person. Great bloke. Army 1 BBC 0. Get in!
It seemed that the interviewer at one point could not accept that we had made progress. He kept harking back to 2006. Doug was great at bring it all back on track - nice to see a "squaddie" get one over the journos for a change.
