Carry On Jeeves

Some 200 returning British serviceman were ordered to change out of their uniforms and into civies to catch a flight home.

Money Q:

"We weren't told who gave the order. It might have been the designated senior officer on board, the chartered airline or the airport security people. It's an insult to the entire Army to force guys who've been fighting in Afghanistan to obey some jobsworth rule when all they want to do is get home soonest to their families. So much for a nation proud of its servicemen."

Great Britian used to be a great nation. Not so much anymore.

When was "Great" Britain a great nation? When they were an imperial ruler? If you look at almost every place on Earth today where there is civil war and strife, it can usually be traced back to the British. The Middle East. Africa. Parts of Asia. They also screwed up North America, Australia and India before they were eventually thrown out. They still occupy six counties in Ireland but that country will soon be a nation once again. Pip Pip and Cheery-o!
