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.

    Sorry Guido but on this occasion I’m not with you on using their deaths as another excuse to give Gordon Brown a kicking. Most other things I’d say fire away at him, but writing this on the day they’re repatriated seems opportunist and leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    Why didn’t you write it on the day of PMQs if you had a point to make?

    IMO this is a legitimate topic for debate/criticism – L/C Tasker died a week ago, Brown couldn’t be unaware of the tradition of naming the dead at PMQs – the last Labour government started it.

    He should have been there – but he wasn’t.

    Brown would have been told that the man had been a constituent of his. He would also have known the convention about the local MP being called to ask a question at PMQs, he was PM after all. Can’t blame Guido for asking where he was. I’m sure many people would like to know, myself included.

    Well Brown has always displayed an ambivalent attitude to our armed forces even when he was the chancellor of the exchequer he delighted in blocking finances for much needed kit, then we had his disgraceful and disrespectful performance at the laying of the wreath ceremony a while back, but he was quite happy to jump on planes for photo ops in Basra when it politically suited him (backfired as usual). To not bother turn up at Parliament after all this time especially when one of his own constituents has died carrying out his duty, a duty put upon him by the dubious foreign policies of both Blair and Brown shows again the same characteristic indifference and lack of judgement. I doubt now if he could ever show his face again in the chambers of Parliament but that’s no loss.

    A rapist who was rugby-tackled by a judge to stop him fleeing from court has been jailed for life at the Old Bailey. On Wednesday, Paul Reid, 34, changed his plea to guilty rather than face Judge Douglas Marks Moore in court.

    Reid was sentenced to a minimum term of six years and three months by Judge Jeremy Roberts for two counts of rape and two escape offences. Judge Roberts went on to praise his fellow judge’s brave actions.

    “The public would wish me to express their appreciation of his extremely brave and public-spirited action, going well beyond the call of duty in preventing the escape of an extremely dangerous man,” Judge Roberts said.

    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.

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?

    Why the fuck didn’t Chilcot and his fellow failed cryogenic experiments arm themselves with this? They could’ve caught the PM lying live on Prime Time telly.

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.

None of them now appear to have ever put on a uniform and done something really dangerous or worthwhile. Indeed, some of them privately despise our armed forces.

    Of course, one of the only times he could be bothered to turn up was to gloat about the fact that the aircraft carriers we can no longer afford to put planes on where still going to be built in his constituency due to uncancelable contracts put in place by…. let me see now…. HIM.
    In any reasonable country he would be locked up by now. The fact that large numbers of people thought that he re-electing him was a good idea just goes to show how screwed this country is.

But then surely the soldier did that when he went looking for employment.

    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………..

    There is no hard and fast rule that the PM HAS to write to the families of servicemen killed in action. However, the Joint Service Publication that refers to this particular subject gives the option of it being either the Sec Def or the PM. 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.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
