L/Cpl Joe Glenton leading anti war march today in London

#1
Demonstrators are expected to gather at Speakers' Corner, in Hyde Park, from 1200 BST on Saturday.

They will then march to Trafalgar Square where a rally will be held at about 1500 BST, with speakers including MP George Galloway and campaigner Tariq Ali.

L/Cpl Glenton will also give a speech despite being advised not to do so by military commanders.

Andrew Burgin, from the Stop the War Coalition, told the BBC News website: "He has just been told by his commanding officer that he should not enter the demonstration and he should not speak.

Britain's own security is at risk if we again allow Afghanistan to become a safe haven for terrorists
Ministry of Defence spokesman

Soldier 'proud' of anti-war march
Most 'remain against Afghan war'

"He has decided to disobey those military orders."

L/Cpl Glenton, based in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, is facing a court martial in November for alleged desertion after going absent without leave in 2007.

In an interview with BBC Radio York, L/Cpl Glenton's wife Claire said he was "proud" to be taking part in the march.

LCpl Jason Statham's wife said she was so proud of her war dodging husband.

Nice touch. I hope deep down just before she sleeps at night she realises that he is just a thieving coward who took the Queens gold coins with no intention of doing his sworn duty. His words are worthless!

Oh Dearie... another illustrious military f*cked up D1ck-head....... Which is more noble.... to be known as a Deserter.... and screw up said career... or soldier on and at least see thing through... Same applied to many a Sodjier years ago in respect to tours in Norn Ire.... Nobody wanted to go there... but they did, meself included....

What he don't realise, as don't many folks is that a Military Court Martal is a legally constituted Cort of law under the UK legal system...

So the poor deluded sod will have to declare this on any employment applications he may make in the future.... especially if he tries to gain future employment in the Public Sector.... after he has done his 'Porridge'.

Colchester... or a Civvie Nick...??

Poor wee sap....!!! :x

Shame he wasn't a Brigadier or above he couldve resigned and made the papers as a hero.
There was nothing stopping him from resigning and doing what he liked. The cowardly deserter shite was happy enough taking cash from the Army until they asked him to go somewhere a bit dangerous and he suddenly decided that he didn't like being a soldier anymore.

He should be up against a wall at dawn.

Just remind me what is the going tariff for Desertion in the face of the enemy during wartime? Last time I looked at your Army Act (I'm Aussie) it was a Capital Offense

Hopefully the Big wigs of the court martial system will throw the book at him and not break to further there career, or pressure from the pen pushers of Whitehall.

He should be ashamed to even step outside.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Good point. Probably had plenty of notice of the tour could have left/NTTd anytime he wanted! He was AWOL or whatever they call it these days and that is final. Little bit of smoke and mirrors by the Anti War crowd so he boost their point.

Don't think he is a coward as he wasn't conscripted or coerced just an immoral opportunistic little stroker. He will be crap at everything he does. Surely his wife must know he has no staying power by now!!
