Meanwhile British soldiers carry on being killed

The Observer report that:
"Defence ministers spurned three separate deals to buy American Black Hawk helicopters which would have helped to plug the dangerous shortage facing British troops in Afghanistan. The most recent rejection came only days ago"
The armed forces want more helicopters, more helicopters would reduce deaths but this Labour government may talk the talk on caring for the troops but they do not walk the walk.

And they say you can't put a monetary price on a human life.

It seems Dear Prudence can.

Gordon Brown killed off "prudence" in 2000, since then we have been ruled by "rash Gordon".

Wish I'd thought of that one...
