Lt. Mark Evisons journal in the Telegraph

#2
If you have a 'dicky ticker' or you are a ZANU Neu Arbeit supporter, I suggest that you do not read this article.

It was written by a man, now dead, who could have had NO IDEA that one day it would be available for the public read.

The Voters Exam Question:

Do you believe a soldier writing facts as he sees them in the midst of the battles in Afghanistan? Or, do you believe the words of Brown, Milliband, Ainsworth, Stirrup and Mandelson, whose combined record for probity and accuracy is not without blemish?

Answers to No. 10 Downing Street.

I ask this government, could you face Mrs Evison? Is your conscience absolutely resolute that you have done the right thing? Because assuredly you will have to live with your conscience long after the trappings of power are long gone.
 
#4
I sometimes thing of eulogies as form things. However, in the case of this guy, saying we lost a good man is horribly true. Mother seems a real lady in way she has handled it all.
 
#5
His mother showed great strength and dignity on her loss, when she read a short part of his diary, on news night last night.

Paxman's rereading of part of that same extract to Rammel and his reaction shows exactly why he should not be the armed forces minster.

Rammel is a disgrace of a man (much like the rest of them)

Im personally fed up with the constant use of spin regarding lack of equipment and more importantly HELICOPTERS.

Ive heard Brown and that nob Rammel mention (he in the same room as a mother of the Officer listed in the journel who before he died had mentioned about lack of equipment/helicopters)
How Heli-lift capability has increased 60% since 2006.

HOW MANY TROOPS WERE SERVING IN HELMAND IN 2006? One Brigade!
HOW MANY NOW???????????

Lynxs cannot operate during the heat of the day in the summer, scratch them
Apaches, no carry capability, scratch them

Chinooks and Sea kings, so including the need for IRT SH and air frames in for servicing, maybe 8 airframes, maybe?

For 3 battlegroups?????????????????????

A disgrace.

I am also fed up with the way walt communist Ainsworth uses the word 'ellicopter this and 'ellicopter that in the Chamber. Anyway walter, what happened to the Danish 'ellicopters, another procurement fcuk up?
 
#9
As it stands I have a lack of radios, water, food and medical equipment. This with manpower is what these missions lack. It is disgraceful to send a platoon into a very dangerous area with two weeks' water and food and one team medics pack
and

(Mark was fatally wounded by a single bullet in his shoulder during an early patrol and ambush on 9 May. He commanded his men back to safety, and lost consciousness from bleeding within an hour. He never regained consciousness).
Anyone see a link here?

So much for the 'golden hour'(Yes, I know there's a war on unlike, it would seem, the politicos.)

War on the cheap(1), from the horses mouth.

(1)As I will never tire of saying.

Lt. Evison leaves an important legacy.

He was in the van of military men who wrote about the reality of what they were tasked to do. He gained an audience and his words are read out to worthless Ministers on prime time television.

We can all see the effect of his words on those who are apologists for the disgraceful shower currently in charge.

But it's more than that. If you read between the lines now, I think you'll find a British public that understands what is going on far more than it has ever done before.

They will, for the first time since 1945 remember the armed forces when they vote.

Lt. Evison has helped to seal this government's fate.

While I agree with your sentiments, sadly your prediction that the public will remember the Armed Forces is not taking into account the fact that very few of the uneducated fuckwits that vote labour either read the telegraph or watch newsnight. Now if was published in the Sun/ Mirror etc and broadcast by Pete and Katie, you might have a chance of getting through to them. On the upside most of the fuckwits I refer to can't be arrsed to vote

Don't underestimate the voter - leave that mistake to No 10.

For sure, feckwits don't vote. But a lot of people in marginal seats (where the election will be lost) are not feckwits. I think that tomorrow's papers will (alas) be running front page and pp2,3,4,5,6 specials from Wooton Bassett.

Some may even pick up on Lt. Evison's words.

The tide of ignorance is turning, inshallah.

The election will be a no-contest , the only problem is that it can't come soon enough.
Unfortunately Brown and his cronies know this and will probably hang on until the very last moment. So the earliest we can expect a change is around 3 June 2010 which is, IIRC, the latest the next election can be held.

I sincerely fucking hope so, but reckon Brown will pull enough shit out of a sack to form a Lab/Lib pact. If you think the country is fucked now, just wait till that little Do-Do comes home to roost in your wallet!

All Brown needs to do is announce a piddling tax cut here or there that affects those most in need and poxy tax cut that affects middle britain announce massive tax hikes for the rich and introduce some more stealth taxes and he is back in. 200 dead soldiers won't even come into the equation when Frogmella and Wayne can claw 10p back in every 100 quid innit!

And the shites won't get rid of Brown now, they'll want to squirrel away as much of our money as they can before they're out on the street or one of the 'lucky' few spending the next fifteen years in opposition.
