Jools Holland calls for greater recognition for troops.

#2
"The important thing I want to stress is that this was not a political gesture. Soldiers simply do as they are told so those people who think war is a bad idea should be saying that to politicians, not soldiers.

"If you are against the war, that's fine – take it up with the politicians and vote them out – but I think you can't not support the troops."

Well said that man!
