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.
