Piety, you just couldn-t resist that slot on last nights 10 O’clock news could you?
A prime opportunity for some of that anal seepage style smug sincerity that has won you two elections and probably the next. The scripted rhetoric must have taken the duty spinmiester all of five minutes, probably over a mobile phone from a cottage in Oxfordshire – Open necked shirt, unshaven, the sundays.
“This country and the wider world will never forget them”.
Oh but they will won’t they Piety, by the time the election comes around you’ll be reaping the benefit of their forgotten lives whilst forging that all important place in History.
“This is the true face of the British Army: Brave, committed, professional the world over, doing an extraordinary job on behalf of their country”.
Words are cheap, because for you it’s all about getting a good deal for Piety. That’s why under your watch, as with the Tories, the British Army have continued to be grossly underpaid, overworked, badly funded, poorly equipped and generally humiliated on the world stage.
So while you pander and creep round the Met and the precious middle classes like the sycophant that you are, others are realising the sharp end of you flawed endeavours.
I hope that one day it turns around and bites you on the arse.
