Quote of the Day

SAS hero Andy McNab on Labour MP Madeleine Moon’s call to end cheap beer for our boys:

“It can’t be one rule for them and one rule for the soldiers.

Are you telling me you don’t have politicians drinking to excess in subsidised bars in the House of Commons?

The difference is in the Armed Forces men and women need somewhere to bond and socialise to build the relationships that their lives depend on.

And when they go too far, they are punished severely – more severely than some MPs do for their drunken behaviour.

The Armed Forces are tribal and socialising in your own Mess is crucial to cohesion.

These MPs would be better off looking at their own drinking culture before looking at others.”

Former Governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King…

“There are arguments for remaining in the EU and there are arguments for leaving the EU. But there is no case whatever for giving up the benefits of remaining without obtaining the benefits of leaving.”
