LORD FOULKES SHOULD APOLOGISE FOR ASTONISHING ATTACK ON ARMY CHIEFS
Responding to comments by Labour MSP Lord Foulkes, who accused the head of the Armed Forces and the Army's chief of making comments give 'succour to the enemy', the SNP’s Westminster Leader and defence spokesperson Angus Robertson MP said:
“These are astonishing remarks and totally out of touch. Lord Foulkes should apologise for making such outrageous accusations.
“If Gordon Brown can get Lord Malloch-Brown to retract his comments today, why does he not get Lord Foulkes to do likewise with his disgraceful comments?
"Considering the difficulties faced in Afghanistan, I would have thought Richard Dannatt and Jock Stirrup have shown restraint in this matter which is something Lord Foulkes should consider adopting."
In the UK as well as the world, we live in interesting times. The global economy is in tatters, there is war all over the place and not content with killing and maiming each other, we're also destroying the environment we live in. In the UK we have a failing government and one could go far enough to say a failing political system. There is a lot going on that makes the blood boil. News Rage is a state of angry mind coupled with the actual venting of that anger which manifests itself in the publication of interesting and hopefully entertaining but highly critical articles about something that has been reported in the news within the last 24 hours.
