Can politicians admit they've changed their mind? Blog Discussion



  • Thanks for posting matthkj and best wishes for your posting. My husband was special forces, my nephew is a Rupert and my dad was a senior NCO so I have a good idea of what can happen and how things have been managed from Suez on.

    You the electorate have placed us in these situations, we are delighted to be there on your behalf, just think, like Martin did, before carping too loudly from the comfort of your arm chair.
    I know what you're saying.

    It was the Prime Minister, Cabinet and Parliament who placed our armed forces there, not the electorate. Although we didn't collectively think strongly enough on this issue alone to throw out the government as a consequence in May 2005.
