The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    apologies if posted elsewhere.

     
  2. Now that is something i definitely didn't fight in five wars (sorry "conflicts") for!

    If a government is worried about the public image of its policy, to the extent that it attempts to hide facts, gag witnesses and gerrymander juries, even remove them...well doesn't that sound like the "bad guys'" government?

    Lack of body-armour? Nah, not 'ere, guv.

    Inadequately protected vehicles? Shortages of weapons and ammo? You're 'avin' a larf.

    Heavy-handed police tactics? Move along, folks, nuffink to see.
