Without in any way suggesting we introduce censorship (I'm not a Mod after all) it's worth thinking about what we post for the next few weeks. The Military and Civil Service have now entered the official period of 'purdah', and the the general principle governing communication activities during a General Election is: "to do everything possible to avoid competition with Parliamentary candidates for the attention of the public. In addition, it has always been recognised that special care must be taken during the course of an Election since material produced with complete impartiality which would be accepted as objective in ordinary times, may excite criticism during an Election period when feelings are running high. The general principles apply equally to all Crown Servants, including Military personnel." So press reptiles will be even more interested in what Soldiers say than normal, and will be using this site to save themselves having to do more than minimal work. Be careful, is all I'd say. Don't give anyone an excuse to get this site banned/barred/blocked.
