    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

    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......
     
  5. Agreed but they're asking about opinions against what we're doing. On this of all days?

    Fair comment, I'm with you on that one.

    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.

    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:
