In my opinion, it is the one plus point of the Coalition. At least we don't have to listen to Clegg making it a three-way fest. Without wishing to diminish the deceased, my view is it achieves naff all. Next time you tune into PMQ, take a look around whilst the statement is being read out (by the PM or Ed Milliband). There is a general look of boredom, which just about sums up the majority of our political class. The only people who may take some solace from this are the relatives, although that is debatable.
Maybe our top politicians should take note of the actions of the Royal family. Show support for the Armed Forces by actively encouraging ones offspring to give it a go. As far as I am concerned any support shown by politicians is hollow and done for political purposes and to play to the crowd.
