We have asked our young men and women to go and fight a war most people find too uncomfortable to even read about. Is it just me, or do the reports of casualities continually get assigned to the less newsworthy sections of our daily reading, often hardly meriting a mention?
There is a lot wrong with our country. However, our brave young servicemen and women are role models for us all. When I read about the courage of the soldiers returning from Afghanistan and Iraq minus one or more limbs or horribly disfigured to the extent that even I find it uncomfortable to look a their pictures. I'm humbled and somewhat ashamed that I find myself moaning about unleaded being £1.15 a litre or that the 06.58 Royston to King's Cross is late.
I emplore those in authority to stick two fingers up to the establishment and do for once what is right, not what is lawful.

Let us all give these heroes a welcome they deserve.
It would be an honour to have these men and women march through our town.
