I hate the way that campaigners can't focus on a single cause. The stop the war/free lebanon/legalise dope/ban nuclear power/anti-trident/free milk for schools/ban flying/anti-monarchy/no animal testing/save the wales coalition as it seems to be, doesn't come with the option to show opposition to one topic.

They would be so much more productive if they actually took a reasoned stance on a single issue rather than just being a bunch of angry anti-establishment 'activists'. Might also help if they had any credible arguments.

Troops out of Iraq? I'm sure we'd all love to support that, but the job's not done there yet (despite our boys and girls doing a great job themselves) and are we meant to just pull out and leave a country we have some considerable responsibility for to degenerate into complete chaos?

No, not joking at all. Why would a member of the armed forces want to demonstrate about weapons that safguard us and go on an nati war protest? Most of us have had run ins with CND style protesterd over the years, they are a pain. War is what we do, where would the military be without war? Our duty is to do what we are told by our leaders and if that is war then that is what we do. Anyone who joins the forces with an anti war mentality has issues.
The demonstartion/sit in/ dirty protest mentality has no place on a military site unless it was a wind up and in that case, nice one.
 
Folks , I think the intent of the original post was intended as light hearted and went along the lines of this.... hey everyone do you want a free trip to London and to waste some anti war money to boot. CND or tree huggers Inc, whoever is running a free bus to London for a demo lets gate crash it and instead of going on the protest use the money saved to get p!ssed.

Get it? Somewhat lame joke but hope you now get the idea. More seriously, all service personnel understand their responsibility to go to war if called. Sometimes it may be to defend the right of CND to protest.

Some need to read Womps post again, She is suggeting that by taking up the free transport offer your get a free ride to the Smoke and then go your own way, nothing about going to the demo.

As an extra bonus, by doing this you would be costing the antis money (obvously you wouldn't give a donation), and reducing the number of antis that can go.

Good one Womps :razz: :cool:

100% what I meant ...didn't realise it would be that hard to get!

I had a friend who used to catch the CND protest bus to faslane once a month to go and see her chap when he was drafted up there
