WWI pardons for cowardice condemned

Simon Wessely,proffesor of pychiatry at King College said that the Gov was mistaken to pardon the soldiers 90 years later.
Here's some relevent link-

Peronally I think he should kerb his comments on what is a very sensitive & emotional subject & limit his 'expertise' on the here & now.
(I'll post the link when it's up <unless someone beats me to it!)

And here's one he wrote about Soldiers in the Gulf-

Does it really matter.

When it comes down to it the 304 are pardoned - forgiven if You like - and have not had their verdicts changed to innocent.
