Wootton Bassett

#1
Just watching the news, looks like a huge turn out despite the rain, the support for troops seems to continue to grow even if support for the conflict is falling

The media are also out in force looking for a story etc. Fkrs!

I understand your comment about the media, leeches the lot of them. However on this occasion let us use them in our favour to get the message out and let others know of the scarifices the lads and lasses are making for us.

Any other time they can shove their zoom lens up their arrses......

Just got off the phone with a guy down there (sadly couldnt make it meself) He says lots of Older Grenadiers attended.

Note didnt say ex as "Once a Grenadier always a Grenadier"

Well done Wooton Bassett and all those travelling to attend. Doing the lads proud once again.

Here's tossing a grenade in and ducking - how long do you think it will be before a member of our spiteful and envious government decides that Wootton Bassett is getting a little out of hand and slaps a public order notice on it (in the same way that we are not allowed to gather outside parliament without permission)?

I don't know how we do it, but I reckon we should recommend Wootton Basset for a Queens award. They've done more to earn it than pop stars and celebs if you ask me.

Chubb?
I thought I saw Chubb being interviewed.....BBC (I think) spoke to "one of the first there to pay her respects" "Nicola Collins, once a cadet has seen 23 of her friends laid to rest"

WTF is that about??

Glad someone else saw it, I thought I was dreaming.

Unfortunately as worthy as Wootton Bassett is you will always get an element of ‘Grief Whores’ :evil:

I thought that the forces-hating Gordon and his like-minded cronies only shut down camps and barracks on prime building land (e.g. Church Crookham, Chelsea etc.). You wouldn't call Lynham a sought after residential area, would you? Unless, someone has found oil or gas in the area....

Personally I've not been able to get my head around the grief crowd moving in here. From the legion standard bearers lowering their flags, despite being warned off by the local mayor that they are not welcome, to the endless 'I was there' stories from nobodies who have no concept of the sacrifice of the soldiers passing before them.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels the whole thing is being cheapened by this media circus and false need to be seen there....
