Thatcher v Brown : Rallying the Troops

Margaret Thatcher sent a message of support to British troops on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Falklands. Even though her voice betrays the effects of a stroke, her words still carry conviction. “Fortune does, in the end, favour the brave. And it is Britain’s good fortune that none are braver than our armed forces.”

Brown went to Baghdad last week and told the troops they were getting a below inflation 2% pay rise. Not inspiring.

Quote of the Day

Boris responds to Tusk…

“I don’t want a No Deal Brexit but I say to our EU friends if they don’t want No Deal they have got to get rid of the backstop from treaty. If Donald Tusk doesn’t want to go down in history as Mr No Deal Brexit then I hope this point will be borne in mind by him too.”
