Forsaken

It is a sad new tradition that at the start of PMQs tribute is paid to fallen soldiers. Lance Corporal Liam Tasker, of the First Military Working Dog Regiment, the Royal Army Veterinary Corps, was killed by small arms fire on patrol with his dog in Helmand Province on Tuesday of last week.

His springer spaniel, Theo, suffered a seizure shortly afterwards and died. The British are very sentimental about dogs and combined with the death of young Lance Corporal Liam Tasker, who was flown back from Helmand with Theo, this story touched the hearts of many.  On Wednesday at PMQs he was given the customary and deserved tribute by the PM and the leader of the opposition.

The Speaker in this situation often gives priority to the constituency MP of the fallen hero to say a few words of comfort. No such comfort was offered on this occasion. Liam Tasker was born in Kirkcaldy.

      Too late now for me to benefit from that sort of opportunity and in any case they will always vote for me here. Before the election I would have paid a fulsome tribute of course.

        Do we feel more sorrow for the dog because it did not volunteer to go where there was danger that it night get killed. Or do we feel sorrow for the soldier who volunteered to go out and kill, or help kill, other men?

          The dead soldier’s job was detecting IEDs / bombs. He risked his own life to help save others.

            He was aiding and supporting other troops engaged in an illegal war and was therefore guilty of a war crime. Just following orders is not an excuse under international law – not that the UK and US pay any attention to international law unless it suits them.
            Another point is that the IEDs wouldn’t be there if the troops weren’t.

            Yes I did think it through, smoggles. I also thought that the dog would not have chosen to put itself in the postion of going into a battle zone out of free will. Granted he may well have decided to piss up someones leg but he would not go out thinking of being complicite in potential slaughter. But then surely the soldier did that when he went looking for employment.

      It may seem inappropriate to make political capital out of a soldier’s death, but all of the British soldiers I have ever known wouldn’t begrudge their memory being used as a chisel to cut away at political crap, from either party. I wouldn’t, whether it was John Major who first sent me to war, or Tony Blair who did repeatedly.

      On a serious point, is there anything at all that can be done to force Gordon fucking Brown to at the very least act as a normal MP and turn up for work? Motion in the Commons? Stop his pay? Letter writing campaign to all the MSM? Kidnap him in Fife and deliver him to Parliament Square in a transit van?

However, one of the few decent things he did do while PM was to write personally to the families of servicemen killed in action – something he didn’t have to do, and he didn’t seek publicity for doing so. He did at least demonstrate some human feeling then, and there’s no reason to suppose he’s lost that human feeling now.

        There is no hard and fast rule that the PM HAS to write to the families of servicemen killed in action.

Given we had what, six Sec Defs in three years, no wonder the monocular megalomaniac took it upon himself.

        He never gave a fuck about the military from day 1 to the end. If he had, he wouldnt have had the ligature from the treasury around the MOD’s neck for 13 years. And certainly wouldnt have signed off on the carrier deal, which was a complete abomination.

      I support the first sentence but strongly object to the second! Fred Goodwin was NOT a banker. He was an accountant who stepped sideways into a bank during the longest period of growth in European and World history. He never experienced a recession in the industry until his bank went bust in any conventional understanding of the term. So he was manifestly incapable of curing the omnishambles that he had helped to create. Only a decade earlier and he would have been deemed unsuitable for the post through lack of experience.

    Funny how the messiah, envoy Tony Blair is silent as Libya prepares to commit genocide on its own people.

    Libya is preparing full-scale military action to crush a rebellion and will not surrender even if Western powers intervene. That message comes from Gaddafi’s most prominent son, Saif.

    “It’s time for liberation. It’s time for action. We are moving now,” he said.

    “We will never ever give up. We will never ever surrender. This is our country. We fight here in Libya. The Libyan people, we will never ever welcome Nato, we will never ever welcome Americans here. Libya is not a piece of cake.”

      It's a funny old World...... says:

      What I’d like “Dave” to tell us..is exactly what a “no-fly zone” will achieve in pratical terms to assist the situation ?

      As Jon Nichol said yesterday on Sky and repeats again to-day in the Mail…”No fly-zones” are extremely complicated>It’s worth reading his article in full(the link is below)but here’s an extract

      “The true number of violations of the no-fly zone is unknown, but some estimate that more than 5,700 illegal flights took place during the 32-month operation.

      It became so disheartening that many of us joked about changing the radio challenge we were required to issue to violating aircraft. Our real order was: ‘Land immediately or exit the no-fly zone or you will be engaged.’ After thousands of challenges were ignored, some wag re-wrote the radio challenge to say: ‘Leave the no-fly zone or the Royal Air Force will escort you safely to your final destination.’

      One deeply disturbing example of this kind of madness was in February 1994, when six Serbian aircraft were intercepted en route to attack a military factory in Bosnia.The rules of engagement required two challenges to be issued, and both were ignored by the Serbian crews. And in the time it took the Nato pilots to seek final UN authority to engage the aircraft, the Serb pilots had dropped their bombs on the target, leaving it in flames”.

      ———————————————————————————————–

      …Gadaffi is using tanks and ground troops and a no fly-zone won’t affect that at all unless the UN/NATO is prepared to attack ground targets,armour and troops(let’s face it they’re getting enough trouble trying to cobble together this toothless “nofly zone so any possibility of that is less than zero).

      NATO is in a bind;the UN is unlikely to agree anytime soon and the EU,the germans in particular,are not keen on military action if it comes to it…the German Foreign Minister even went on the record to say effectively that Germany is not getting involved in any war in North Africa(period).

      The only power that can actually stop it is the USA and they too are far from keen with different factions advising caution or going in with military force to take out Gadaffi’s Regime….but after Iraq they will be cautious to ensure that they have full legal cover,,,,,so expect several days more of “Dave” & “Sarko” setting the mood and working themselves into a lather.In the meantime the “Colonel” continues his operations to recover his country and smash the opposition…by the time the “West” moves it’ll be too late………..

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
