  2. Should be interesting to see what happens over there should this go ahead.

    ...and if a snap election is called.
  3. Good. That means I may not have to come back. :D
  4. With the early pullout of one BattleGroup from the COB and now, this one has to wonder if our 'beloved' Prime Minister's plans to sort out Africa ie Darfur are starting to move forward slowly and not just a pipe dream anymore.
    Christmas in Africa anyone?
  5. Is it just my cynical head working ..... or do I see yet another 'popular' move pre a possible 'snap' election????

    it would appear that labour can do no right...
  7. Would that cover the 6000 "cut" that is planned?
    2000 on tour, 200 getting ready for tour, 2000 just come off tour?
  8. Isnt that what they do everytime an election is called. Butter up the public!!!!

    Personally i don't give a flying feck whether he's reducing the numbers to make himself look good. I'm just glad he's doing - I still can't stand the muppet.

    You can only hope the general public can see past facade.
