Telegraph reports comment from Hewitt
The only wry smile to be derived from the humiliating circumstances in which our 15 sailors and Royal Marines were captured by just six Iranians came from the comment by Patricia Hewitt. "It was deplorable," pronounced our tight-lipped Health Secretary, "that the woman hostage should be shown smoking. This sends completely the wrong message to our young people."
Not an April 1 item. You could not make this up!

How that woman hasn't been sacked by now is beyond me, maybe she's smoking Bliar on the sly.

Fecking speechless, and angry is not the word...
The meedja should be jumping all over this to highlight just how little the Armed Forces are respected by the government.

It is an absolute disgrace the government could use this situation to highlight their anti smoking stance.
These people are serving their country and getting absolutely feck all for it.
Bring on the revolution for god sake, before its too late... oh it already is.
Politicians, I shite em.

Smoking in captivity.....it's not big and it's not clever. Had they been captured in Southern Ireland...she'd have been forced to smoke outside!

It is an April Fool. Someone posted something very similar on ARRSE yesterday PM, but I can't find the link right now 'cos I'm on a borrowed crap PC at present.

The sad this is that no, I wouldn't in the least. My kind of humour though.

FFS!!! Although I wouldn't be the slightest bit surprised if it really happened. Would you?
That's the one I had in mind.

Sad thing is one could very easily imagine it was true.

What a complete Cherry Bliar class COW!

I've said it before, this first class bitch - not even British by birth I gather - will do for Bliar and his gang of spivs what Virginia Bottomley did for the Tories - lose thousands and thousands of votes by opening their sneering, self-satisfied, smug mouths.

I DON'T CARE IF IT IS AN APRIL FOOL'S JOKE - I STAND BY ABOVE.

If this frantic woman knew we had troops in Iraq, and if she had seen the captured Leading Seaman smoking, she might well have said this.
