Two more of 'our boys' killed in Afghanistan - do something, all you leading politicians of the so-called 'major' political parties, for God's sake!
News has just come through that two more of 'our boys' have been killed in Afghanistan. The total of British dead is now 284.
I am sick and tired of protesting about this slaughter that is going on and on for no useful purpose.
The generals and the leading politicians are talking about it going on for five, ten, fifteen more years. They say that the sacrifices being made 'over there' are making us safer 'over here.' I do not buy that argument. Indeed, it could be said - and it is said, by me - that we have plenty of 'home-grown' terrorists 'over here' already. How about doing something about them? The Americans are slowly recognising the truth of this in their own country. Why can't our leaders see it, too? I say, 'Do something, all you leading politicians of the so-called 'major' political parties, for God's sake!'
If they (the leading politicians of the so-called 'major' political parties) don't soon see this and don't do something about it, neither God nor the people will forgive them.
Mr Sedgwick-Jell has courage and integrity. Moreover, on this issue, he is right, as am I. I hereby honour Mr Sedgwick-Jell by publishing his portrait on my blog.
