I'm not some cold-blooded freak. Genuine thought here: Is Wootton Bassett going to end up weighed down under the sort of public displays of grief that we saw go off the scale with the death of Diana? I'm fully behind the local old boys / RBL and the way the town has got behind it (despite the fact you were a dead cert for a battering if you were a serviceman drinking there a few years back). What grips me is the way it is becoming a focus for the sort of professional mourners and hand-wringers who laid flowers for the 'People's Princess' way back when. The sort of person who writes poetry, badly, about someone they have never met and tells it to the world. The media coverage of it is just fuelling the fire and makes the grief-mongers and red-faced nutters want to get there for every repatriation and turn it into a circus spectacle. I want the British Public to back the British Tommy - heaven knows the Forces have been shunned for long enough. If as much effort went into supporting the Forces whilst living I might be less annoyed by the hearse-chasing grief-walts. Just a view - nothing malicious.
