It grieves me that I have just read about a life sentence ‘awarded’ to a Royal Marine – and on today of all days. For once the Grauniad has got a bit of balance, but only a little bit.
Frankly I am astounded. Spare me the bleeding heart righteousness. This is a job from which I think I would shrink.
Wake up justice – you are being led by the nose.
Despite the hypocritical and amazingly self-centred assertion by some that no soldier fights for them I join the millions in their thanks for the ultimate sacrifice made by those who believed which is summed up by a haunting refrain (despite the author misspelling the opening word)
May you all rest in peace, and forever be remembered.
