Have they no shame?

At a 111 birthday party for much-respected Henry Allingham, the usual service contributions were made. The band of the RM played Happy Birthday, various air and flag officers paid their respects. However in the background to this picture is an unseemly presence, that of so called Veterans minister Steven Twigg.



I cannot imagine any circumstance that would get Mr Twigg out from his MoD fastness to honestly and frankly discuss veterans affairs, such as the percentage of ex-servicemen in the UK's homeless population or the absurdity of denying Ta Bahadur Pun a visa. Yet he is quite happy to pluck the low hanging fruits of media relations.

I only hope Mr Allingham, a man whom I personally have nothing but the highest regard for, wasn't too distressed by the minister's appearance. Luckily Mr twigg is seen as a bit of a charisma black-hole and it is likely Mr allingham didn't notice his presence. Nice to see a Labour minister alongside those decorated freely by their country but without even a pocket handkerchief on his own manly breast.

Sorry Cuddles, I don't understand the sartorial point your making. Care to elucidate, or should I have to have a quiet word with my tailor?

The nicest quote I've seen from Henry Allinghan was " I've had a unique sort of life, I've scraped the barrel and I've had the cream."

from " The last post" Max Arthur.

now will someone airbrish Twigg out of the frame please.

Is that not Derek Twigg?

Stephen Twigg is the openly gay former education minister who got slung out in the 2005 elections. Arrested for drunken behaviour and fined but that is no barrier to being a Director of the Labour toerag "Foreign Policy Centre".

You know, the one that the The Foreign and Commonwealth Office does not provide any funding to because:

"We define 'funding' as payments made to an organisation which are not in respect of goods or services that the organisation has or will be providing to the FCO, but are instead made to support the organisation in its work.

A number of payments have been made to the Foreign Policy Centre during this period, but all such payments have been for goods and/or services provided by this organisation. "

Ah, right.

I thought your title was a rhetorical question? Derek Twigg is a politician............enough said

It looks like he snuck inround the back and kept popping his head up for the pictures. Shove the Twigglett down a manhole.

I'm sure its all fine untill Mr. Allingham needs some medical attention, or a place in a care-home. Lets see if you can find D. Twigg MP then.

Delightfully Stalinist - nice use of the buff airbrush that man. Can we have a shot of Bliar outside No10 with 'Call Me Dave' 's head superimposed ?

Ave Bossa Nova ( Similis bossa seneca)

Happy Birthday Mr Allingham - let's hope the Minister had enough grace to bring a present.

( but I ain't laying cash on it)

PS A quote from one of Mr Allingham's surviving contemporaries who also featured in the Last Tommy, Mr Harry Patch:

'War is organised murder, nothing else '

It is only a matter of time Bugsy, only a matter of time. This is the Arrse after all, where the world can be how it should be albeit briefly and in cyber-space! Great drills Biped.

Blogg - you are correct, it is Derek Twigg. I was incandescent with rage when I posted this, as my trail of typos and errors must show. You would think I had learned about the dangers of uncontrolled rage after slamming my Discovery in reverse into that dry stone wall back in March...

Derek Twigg notes on his web-site that his primary interests in Parliament are; education, health, economy and local government concerns. Not defence mind.

He of course just looks like an effiminate geek. Stephen Twigg is one.

Ex-stab, the question was rhetorical! What my old Latin teacher (not funnily enough a retired Irish brigadier but a disabled WW2 veteran) would have described as "a question expecting the answer 'yes'"
