Sad Loss to the RAF

Why? I accept that people die, I accept that casualties are emotive. Why does bloke dies on a run need a thread of its own?

This is verging on grief whore territory.

No it isn't you throbber he was an important man (the second most senior officer, RAF) not just to the RAF but to the whole of the MOD and what with this being a military themed site, it is more than appropriate. Its not grief whoring it is a damn sight more relevant to the site and current affairs than all the sodding politics bullshit.

RIP Sir.

This is not grief whoring! It is paying respect to those who deserve it.

Of course i never knew the man,however his achievements and what he did for his men and women say enough for themselves in the light of the last 13years of government.

R.I.P. Sir

p.s. I have always said that sort of thing is not good for you.

I agree with you mate, but it is easier to just ignore the threads than try and reason with grief-ghouls. The only thing you'll do is stir up their faux-outrage that you are unfeeling and not respectful.

Which is what has happened in this thread.

No offence to the guy who died, it's an unfortunate and untimely death and I can sympathise with those who have been left behind, but I am pretty sure that Air Chief Marshal Moran doesn't give a flying fcuk any more.
I can see the point of this thread if it's on E Goat. On here it's just a piece of news and I doubt his family will ever see this thread or draw any comfort from it so that, in itself, makes the thread pointless.

BTW I thought this was a site for serving and ex-serving with a few hangers on. When did it become a 'military themed' site?

Feck me........What an ignorant CNUT you are.
I could try and explain my reason's for thinking you are CNUT, but your too much of a CNUT to understand my reason's for thinking you are CNUT of the highest order.
Only a CNUT, would bother to post on a thread which they think is pointless.
What a CNUT you are.
It's CUNT you moron.

You continuously using the word Cnut on a thread of this subject is surely as bad if not worse than someone who questions its existance in the first place is it not?
