My letter to Bliar

#1
Ahh, the fruits of civilian life! One can write with impunity to ministers of the Crown in the knowledge that an interview-without-coffee will not be forthcoming! So I wrote to Bliar and TCH to express my "concerns". So far I have a lovely little card from No 10 saying that my views were carefully noted. Perhaps that is why he is wearing a vest, as he is shivering with fear and remorse! :twisted: More likely that the letter was "noted" in the "mail in" register and then shredded. :evil:

Dear Mr Blair

I have recently left my post as an Officer with the XXXXXXX because of my realisation, after the Hutton and Butler enquiries, that this nation was led into an illegal and damaging war in Iraq on flawed and false premises. I no longer wish to serve this government as I consider it not to be trusted. If I felt it would do any good I would urge you to resign; however it is clear that you consider yourself infallible regarding the use of force in Iraq, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. There are many compelling reasons that you should not be in office, such as deceit in pressing the case for war, a supine approach to the United States resulting in the chaos we see today, and of greatest concern is your inability to admit failure or error. The most compelling reason is that the British public will never trust a word you utter in future, whatever the threat facing this nation; simply put, you are now ineffectual as a leader, having discarded the traditional virtues of integrity, selflessness and honesty.

I can only hope that the Parliamentary impeachment campaign and a dismal general election performance push the Labour Party into removing you from your post. I have never considered myself a political radical, but your actions have driven me from my service with the XXXXXXX and I now count myself as a trenchant opponent of you and your party and will make whatever contribution I can in the forthcoming general election to damage your position.

Your position is best described by Rudyard Kipling:

“I could not dig: I dared not rob:
Therefore I lied to please the mob.
Now all my lies are proved untrue
And I must face the men I slew.
What tale shall serve me among
Mine angry and defrauded young?

from A Dead Statesman; Epitaphs of The War 1914- 1918.”

Yours sincerely

I don't expect anything from TCH but, if I do, you'll see it here! :twisted:

I think you probably speak for most of the armed forces and a good portion of the public too.
Unfortunately , I doubt either will have the good grace to just go quietly into the night,
Ah well,we can but hope.....

Lots of kisses there MrPVRd. Thought you didn't like him. :wink:

Seriously, it'll go in the shredder long before it reaches dear leader/TCH, but full marks for effort.

It might be better to copy it as an open letter to the press, explaining that Bliar hasn't bothered to answer you. Alternatively, you could have the text miniaturised and engraved onto a 7.62mm bullet which you could then shoot through his lying skull from a suitable range before making your getaway, cackling into the night.

Though I would suggest that if you go for option 2, you probably shouldn't sign it.

:D

Good idea CP, howewver I would strongly urge that you try the new UGL. The area effects of this weapon will ensure that all MP's in the vicinity see the letter (albiet briefly :wink: ), and that there is more likelyhood of catching TCH in the backblast :lol:

In the unlikely event that this fails (such as their being no UGL ammo in the UK coz the gov't are too stingy to PAY for it) please feel free to let me know, and I will endeavor to supply you with copius quantities of 7.62mm link (4B1T or 1B1T, your preference) in order to spread the word.

PS I also do a sideline in engraving tools and magnifying glass if this helps :twisted:

Ah yes, but you've spouted no end of other antagonistic Krap on here before, so who'd listen? :wink:

Would they take it? Even if it was written in crayon or blood? :twisted:
I can recommend The Times - if they intend to publish your letter they'll phone you first.

Ditto the Sunday Telegraph: they are want to reprint letters like this - forces guys feeling they must jack due to unacceptable pressure or misrepresentation/enforced misuse of their chosen role.

A sorry day when this happens mate, sorry to hear your news.
