Totally agree - am having a bit of a "Rage In Eden" today; and apparently it's not appropriate to post about politics in a political thread (if that's the case why not ban them outright?). See elsewhere for this.....lol.

Several of my friends and workmates over the years have been ex squaddies - they were the most gentle and caring people I have ever met; and I have been deeply moved by their kindnesses. Was saved from the sack a few times due to interventions that I didn't even have to request.
