Never Mind the Barracks!

By ATWadmin On January 3rd, 2007

If you land on these shores from anarchic kingdoms far away and claim asylum, you are housed in suitable surroundings before you can say ‘what a load of soft pillocks the British are’.  Similarly, commit a serious crime and get sent to one of our luxurious penitentiaries and you are guaranteed a Ramada Jarvis with bars at the windows.  However, should you decide to pursue a career in what is, for me, the most admirable job that a person can do for their country – join its armed forces – and you can expect to be accommodated in an environment that wouldn’t look out of place in one of those appalling Romanian orphanages we witnessed during the early 1990s.


Get a load of that bath!  I would rather stink like a Jamaican’s armpits on the Tube during a hot summer’s day than have to bathe in that!  We had seen armies of bleeding-heart liberals condemning the facilities at Gitmo for those Muslims who just happened to be lollygagging around the Tora Boras when they were captured by the Allied armies.  Will we hear anything from them about the conditions our boys have to tolerate when not out risking life and limb in the name of their country?  I doubt it.  For some, the comfort of likely terrorists is far more of a priority than the comfort of our own servicemen.


This is a government well versed in throwing money at hopeless causes.  What’s wrong with them pouring much-needed lucre into securing decent environs for our guys in uniform.  If we struggle in Iraq and Afghanistan to the extent the MSM claims, perhaps it is because our forces are chronically underfunded and under-supplied.  If their barracks are an indication of the underlying disdain this government has for them, we cannot be surprised.

    strange thing to say, considering it looks like you ‘heard’ this from the ‘bleeding hearts’ at the BBC.

  2. I’ve also read the Litle Red Book. Does that make me a communist?

  3. I’ve got a copy of the koran (see link below- check first review) but I’m not a muslim.
