Tony Blair Gordon Brown whats the difference. Brown said he would make major announcements to Parliament but just like Bliar he picks his moment on the World stage by cynically making the announcement on a visit to the guys in Basra. Not only does he do that but he then double counts the the numbers by including previous figures in his new total of a 1,000 troop reduction. The mans a twister and liar on the same scale as Bliar! A general election in the offing and a cold calculated use of British Troops to try and bolster his election chances and this from a man who hates the military! Vote Labour Id rather do another OP Tour!
