A DUTY TO OUR MEN
[Tuesday, July 3,2007]
TONY BLAIR committed British troops to more wars than any Prime Minister since the Second World War -from Kosovo and Sierra Leone to Afghanistan and Iraq.
In each theatre, our overstretched serviceman rose to every new and he made of them with exemplary courage.
AND HOW DID MR BLAIR REPAY THEM?
For ten years, he put soldiers' lives at risk for want of basic equipment, allowed the wounded to endure third-class treatment on general wards and neglected servicemen's wives and children in sub-standard housing.
Our troops' workloads grew heavier, their overseas deployments more frequent and their opportunities to see their families increasingly rare.
NO WONDER SO MANY HAVE
The all-party Public Accounts Committee says the number of personnel leaving some sections of the
-to a ten-year peak , leaving acute shortages of manpower.
And as more servicemen leave, of course the pressure on those remain.
In the damning words of committee chairman Edward Leigh:
'The MoD has been relying for too long on the goodwill and courageous spirit of our servicemen and women to compensate for the increasing shortages of personnel.'
The new Prime Minister cannot allow this national disgrace to continue.
[Loosen the purse-strings and let the mistakes of the past be rectified without delay .For once show us that you know how to treat no doubt the bravest and most loyal fighting service in the world which has not deserved the barbarous treatment of neglect of vital equipment-accommodation and military medical care which must be extended for as long as needed.]
Whatever he decides about our deployment in Iraq and Afghanistan Gordon Brown must ensure that our troops have the man-power, equipment and back-up they so desperately NEED.
