1000 Troops home for Christmas

In Uncategorized on October 2, 2007 at 8:28 pm

One thousand British troops will be home by Christmas, Gordon “Father Christmas” Brown promised today. When I heard this story today I couldn’t believe even Brown could be so cynical in using our troops and their families in such a blatant vote catching way. No. 10 described as preposterous the suggestion the prime minister was playing politics. Gordon Brown play politics? Never.

If he is not playing politics, why has he chosen the week of the Conservative Party Conference to visit Iraq? Liam Fox and Sir John Major have both attacked Brown and I am sure they will be many more in the Labour Party who must have cringed when they heard this news.

Play fair Gordon. Our troops risk their lives every day. They deserve the undying gratitude from you, your government and the British people. Stop playing politics with our armed forces.
