  2. Stagging on at major sporting events, carrying flags out at England football internationals, boosting sales of the Scum by alternately killing foreigners and daring to have a social life while they're in barracks and looking good in the background of politician's propaganda photos from 'the front line'.

    You are. The way you handle travel claims is beyond the call of duty.
  12. Standing in indefinitely for competent objective-setting and strategically-minded foreign policy?
