      That's what they signed up for as well. They're already in a disproportionate amount of danger just by being sent over there. Me, I'm not in danger from being blown up in Iraq simply because I haven't signed up for the army. These people made that choice when they signed up, there's no backing out now. No sympathy here I'm afraid. If you sign up to be cannon fodder, then you can't expect to not be treated like it.

        Go.

        Only problem is that if he does go and gets killed, no doubt there will be inquiries for years and years using up loads of public money - as per his mum, so on second thoughts stay.

        Save a whole load of lives and money - no brainer really...

          No Bob, disproportionate means compared with the other regiments, which will require special procedures, which could make sending him not worth while.

          In any case, as I said, he is not complaining, which was the tenet of your original post.

          Not that I like him much anyway. Did anyone list him in the tw@tting thread?

              Correct, don't you just wish they did comedy like that nowadays.

                  Imagine if Harry went, got captured and beheaded.

                  If Arch Duke Ferdi caused ww1, then surely our Kraut Royal family would be pushing to nuke the whole of the Middle East.
