    1. The Royal Navy

    He's my local guy. Ex Royal Marine and now TA Para Lt Col. Nice bloke and got my vote. Cares about the area and is very much in to helping with problems. Has a good support organization in Plymouth from the Tories so no snags him being away.
  4. While the story is rare, I would be shocked to the core is he was anything but a Tory.
  5. Yep, as previosly posted, he is working at TF Helmand HQ.


    Fair play to him for keeping up the day job though.

  6. TA WO on TELIC was in the same position - STRE and had a day job, that is done by about 15 people in the UK - top bloke and like Lt Col Reynolds, keeping in regular contact with the full-time employer, and his electorate. Good effort.
  7. "rare"? oh, sorry, you're right, there are loads of Socialist local politicians doing their bit in Helmand, far more than the "Tories"

    Really? How back-people-into-a-corner of you.

    Who cares what his politics are?

    He might have been a LibDem for all you know, like Paddy Pantsdown, seemingy a marine type.
  8. He's wrote a few books as well and I believe he's also the editor of the Pegasus Journal.
  9. Just out of sheer interest......can anyone name a single current Labour Councillor who's served on Tour. I can think of one Liberal councillor from Hull.......

    A councillor doing his bit for his community in representing his people, and doing his bit for his country in the Armed Forces.

    Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy that does.

    Now, about Gordon Broon . . .
  11. Isn't Gordon Broon on tour at the moment, or is that on holiday, I am not too sure but I am sure that he is full of self importance and a prize cnut
