Seems a great blog to me but a very stupid one. If that's how you feel why should any politician have any sympathy at all for you? You volunteered get on with it. Why should we give you any decent kit, look after the wounded, pay you decent wages, give you decent accommodation when you return, or indeed have any public sympathy at all? After all why spend Â£12 Billion for a few to enjoy themselves. Major Paul Smyth thinking area is as far as the end of his nose. If this was to get about in political or civil society it could, over time precipitate a significant drop in public and political support. I would think those feeling are best kept to yourself if indeed they are true of the majority of soldiers.
