Further to a previous thread in this forum http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn/index.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=180797#180797 - When I saw this headline in the newsagents, my first thought was "That's Gen Alistair's 'Golden Thread" snapped then". However, I see from the article that Brig Allan Alstead was way ahead of me. Annabelle Ewing MP (did she get that ARRSE mug?) said it is "another stab in the back" for soldiers who had risked their lives. Link to Herald front page article here: http://www.theherald.co.uk/news/32753.html I'll post the text later.
