We've all seen the news, we've all read the threads, we've all shared the jokes. Take that to the NAAFI. The fact remains that Gordon Brown, our Prime Minister, took time to say that after the passing of Jade Goody, he was "deeply saddened", and a whole load of other pointless soundbites. What actual input/impact on the British political system did the former Big Brother "star" have? Zero. So why does he even need to comment on its passing? Votes. Back in the real world, soldiers, sailors and airmen are being killed on Operations, and our so-called "leader" does very little (on a picometric scale) to acknowledge this. Every time someone is killed on an Operation that Gordon and his mate Tony made happen, where is the public announcement of their grief? Nowhere. PtP, I apologise for the obvious rant, hole this as you see fit. It is just obvious where the priorities of the government lie - and it isn't with us.
