Soldier's mum's anger at Prescott

The mother of a soldier killed in Iraq stormed out of a meeting with John Prescott saying he talked "rubbish".
Rose Gentle and 14-year-old daughter Maxine had been in Downing Street to hand over a letter to Tony Blair stating concerns about the Iraq war.

Mr Prescott offered them the surprise meeting about the death of son Gordon, 19, killed in Basra on 28 June.

He apologised that a handwritten letter of condolence from Mr Blair arrived nearly seven weeks after the tragedy
Perhaps she should have waited for the Beloved Leader in person?

1. Slightly confused that it is normal form for the Prime Minister to write to the family of every serviceman killed on an op tour. I thought that was Regimental business alone.
2. Am sorry that his memory is being used for political gain.
3. He must have thought it was the right thing to do, and therefore shouldn't his family trust his judgement?

Your right it normally is.

Your right! However B-Liar will seize any opportunity to gain a point.

3. He must have thought it was the right thing to do, and therefore shouldn't his family trust his judgement?
And unfortunately that is where you give yourself away.............we are soldiers..............personal opinion matters not a jot.we follow orders because we ARE soldiers. How the feck do think you know what he must have thought? If you read most of the threads on here you will note that we soldiers have a healthy dose of cynicism! What he and the other young men we have lost did was to follow in the best traditions of the Army.......... :evil:
