Honouring our servicemen and women
12/10/2008 17:19:00

This morning I attended the parade to thank the borough's servicemen and women who have suffered in Afghanistan and Iraq and to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Territorial Army.

Reservists have been called upon to play an increasingly heavy role in both Afghanistan and Iraq. These operations, particuarly Iraq, are highly contentious but whatever our individual views on the rights and wrongs of each conflict, we should all be grateful for the commitment and bravery that our armed forces show in carrying out the tasks which the Government has asked them to undertake.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
