Lack of respect

Iain Dale in an outrageous piece on his blog questions the courage of British soldiers in Iraq. How easy it must be from the comfort of your computer in Essex to question the bravery of people who are risking their lives on a daily basis. I've had a lot of time for Iain in the past. He doesn't seem that bad a chap... for a Tory, (unlike many of the serious sociopaths who inhabit his comment columns) but to type a post which even appears to suggest that these soldiers may be too frightened to ask a simple question is contemptible, and they deserve an apology.
