BBC News - Cameron like bully Flashman, says Miliband It has just come to my attention that Labour are characterizing the PM as "Flashman." Am I alone in thinking that this is a foul slur on the character of the late Sir Harry Paget Flashman, VC? I consider it absolutely disgraceful that the name of one our most eminent Victorian-era Army heroes is being bandied about for political gain. Should a man who charged with the Light Brigade, who hacked his way through Zulu, Cossack and Pathan and who galloped the Rani of Jhansi herself have his good monicker dragged through the mud? By God sir, he should not. I demand: UK-based ARRSERs immediately start a petition, to be handed in to the House of Commons expressing our most significant displeasure. If that does not force Labour to damme well behave like gentlemen, gunpowder in the cellars is the second option. I also take issue with the idiotic scribblers at the BB bloody C so who seem to consider Sir Harry a fictional character, of all things! Still, we can deal with those simpering dolts at a later date. Our first duty is clear: We must rescue the good Sir Harry's name.
