It never ceases to amaze me these days how Gordon Brown will say things and seemingly doesn;t think about how it will come back to haunt him. As has been evident this week from the press releases out from Government and Number 10, he's a little bit nervous that people don't think he takes the care of military serviceman seriously.
After being slated by the top brass, David Cameron, The Sun, and many others, almost every week we get a press release about how much he is doing for the Armed Forces. Yesterday we were subjected to one where he said he would ensure the Armed Forces woould have "all the resources they need for our defence and their own safety".
Now I apologise profusely for using anecdotal evidence and if you choose to believe it's bollocks then so be it, but I've been told of a tale from a soldiers mothers that some forces personnel in Afghanistan are having to use their mobile phone cameras on reconnaissance missions.
