    Difficult to reconcile Cameron’s message here with the perpetual wars the West continues to promote, if that’s not a kick in the teeth to all those who’ve sacrificed their lives I don’t know what is.

    Their sacrifice was not for out liberty in the long run

    Not quite the same at all.

    Both being NATO members in a common defence agreement that is fine.

    With R’ussian aggression being felt in the B’altics now this is significant.

    If this was routine would not be reported.

    This is much more like a R’ussian warship being spotted unauthorized off the coast of S’cotland as happened earlier this year. R’ussia would have been testing L’atvia and NATO’s defences here.

    The secret is not to apply for permission first and then slap in for retrospective permission later.

    It’s not illegal to build without a permit. It is only illegal to ignore a removal court order which can take years to arrive. Hopefully by then this good citizen will have made his money, the people enjoyed his short cut and the council and government got some tax.

    For the truth is that, when “he was Labour leader, Foot attended the annual Remembrance Day service at the Cenotaph in 1981. A Labour MP who didn’t like him much happened to be watching on TV, and said: “Look, he’s wearing a donkey jacket!” As it happened, it was not a donkey jacket at all, but a very expensive short overcoat that his wife, Jill, had chosen for him because she thought it made him look elegant. Even the late Queen Mother, at the post-ceremony reception, commented on what a splendid garment it was.

    But “donkey jacket” fitted the image of Michael Foot as a thoughtless scruff – someone who, when about to attend the most solemn event of the year, grabbed the first coat he could see, and came in something that might have been suitable for a long walk through bracken.” SIMON HOGGART, MailOnline, 23:19 01 July 2007

    P.S: As for the Donkey Jacket, the attack on this honest and useable working coat is a fair indication of how the people backing the site hate the Working Class.

    As all our finest Armchair Generals are out and about this day may I raise a glass ( and perhaps strike many medals ) in honour of the people who will do no fighting, never did no fighting and have no intention of fighting in the future?

    The First World War ( lest we forget?) was the unleashing and playing out of a declining world power – Britain and the two upstart challenging nations the US and Germany – for the re-distribution of Economic power that once was the sole province of Queen Victoria.

    The poor sods who fought it out on all sides had no idea what they were fighting for at the time but found out in the re-match (WW2) exactly what was at stake. Ironically the present is a a result of the past two wars and post Communist Russia is as much a part of those resulting outcomes as is Israel.

    So here we are again only this time the real victors of both wars are refereeing the new set of fixtures.

    That is the US ( otherwise known as NATO). The UN is powerless and the paralells are striking. The US is now under threat from the emerging powerhouse known as China and the the BRICS are forming economic alliances as we type.

    As in the past Economic wars can rapidly turn into actual real wars.

    The same trends are being played out before our very eyes.

    Lest we forget indeed.

    Do all the royals, politicians, and dignitaries leave personal messages to the dead on the wreaths at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday?

    I wonder what the Queen puts on her wreath.

    This is clearly a pre-planned sting from Lynton Crosbie. I hope that it backfires.

    Plus the jacket was done up wrong, there must be visual evidence of that somewhere…

    Well done for spinning that one so well.

    But another way of looking at this is that the Tories support measures that are likely have a negative impact on low-waged people – such as voting for:

    Banker’s bonuses (‘Greed is Good’)

    Greater tax avoidance

    Greater ‘autonomy’ for schools

    Failing Academy Schools

    Measures to prevent climate change

    Capping civil service redundancy payments

    A reduction in spending on welfare benefits

    Reducing the rate of corporation tax

    ‘Reforming’ the NHS (‘200 pound to see your doctor’?)

    And in other news, Lib-Dem Danny Alexander has said that: “Any Conservative plan to have a flat rate of income tax in which cleaners would pay the same rate of income tax as bankers would be unspeakably unfair.”

    So the IDF targeting and killing school children is just Israel defending its citizens? Notice the likes of you do not mention Israel in relation to terror raids, mass punishment or war crimes – most telling.

    Yet again, what if the gave a war and nobody turned up? He fights for Russia’s, for the Ukraine, for NATO, for the USA…

    Whether or not the coat was done up wrong, it would certainly be interesting to see pictures of Mr Foot and his ‘Donkey Jacket’.

    Found it! Michael Foot’s ‘donkey jacket’ is among the artefacts on show at the People’s History Museum in Manchester.

    Bye 4 now.

    Surely if you are a senior figure going to an event like that, you will:

    1. Ask – Will I be laying a wreath
    2. Ask – Will a wreath be provided
    3. Write out a note to attach to the wreath if one is going to be provided by the organisers or attach to the wreath if taking one yourself.

    There is no excuse and all the blame rests on Milliband and Clegg.

    Are the two of them so incompetent that they cannot handle a simple task like that?

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.”
