I'd like to see how quick B-Liar would have signed us up if Ewan was in the Army. Dont get me started on Bliar, I wouldnt pi** on him if he was on fire. My mum and dad spent a fortune kitting out my sisters for Iraq becuase the army issue stuff was just not up the job. My sisters & brothers in laws are in the signals, its their job to communicate, SO GIVE THEM RADIOS THAT WORK! The radios were so out of date they couldnt cope and they were having to rely on their mobile phones, however, when news of the bad equipment and shortages got back to the UK press they were threatened with ALL personel to hand in their mobiles to stop the press stories. They tried it but realised comms were down becuase they didnt have their phones to use! One sister was not issued with desert combats for 5 months! When my dad complained to our MP, she said they were all issued with them but whether they chose to wear it or not was up to them !!! HELLO who in their right mind wants to wander around a war zone in their euro- green kit and stick out like a sore thumb. Basically army families were called liars when we complained about kit etc. *pant* *pant* I'm just so jaded with politics and politicians in general. Does it matter who you vote for, nothing will change, they are all in it for them selves, you show me a politian who actually thinks what is best for the country first, and I will eat my own leg.
