Why the f*** are idiots still filming and posting sh1t like this? They must know it will end up on the web and getting themselves into trouble! I couldn't give a flying monkey what you are getting up to, but to film it and post it! Haven't the Army learnt anything in the digi media age? So it got a wee laugh, but was it worth all the trouble they are in now?

Well, obviously everyone has to say that this kind of behaviour is unacceptable and shouldn't happen, but Corbyn has sided throughout his political career with those opposed to the UK, aka our 'enemies', which in previous times would have been considered treason, so I can fully understand the mindset of these Paras. Filming it & posting it on social media in the present climate is clearly a gross error of judgement though.

Should we end up with our first Marxist revolutionary PM I don't think it will change his view of our armed forces however as his opinion is already pretty negative.....

I see the Twitter feed does not blur faces. Wonder what distance that was as looks very accurate.

No one would be wailing if the pic had been Bin Laden or Sadam - isn't this all a bit hypocritical?

I wonder how many of those Labour MPs expressing righteous indignation have gone along to see Billy Elliott - the Musical and sung along to Merry Christmas Margaret Thatcher

So merry Christmas Maggie Thatcher
May God's love be with you
We all sing together in one breath
Merry Christmas Maggie Thatcher
We all celebrate today
'Cause it's one day closer to your death

Hypocrites!

Why would any MPs have gone to see Billy Elliot, the musical? Odd.

Armed forces shooting at targets which are leader of oppostion of the country is not something good to see, whatever country it is. If said opposition leader becomes Head of Govt it causes all sorts of issues.

I can understand the humour in it but what next ? Prince Charles ? Camilla ? HRH ?

Good post TTN - and one rarely raised. I and my family are great fans of musical theatre, and they wonder why I won't see Billy Elliott (I loved the film).

That's the reason......

Yeah, if you don't want to hear bad things said about Thatcher in your musical theatre it's probably best not to go and see one that is set in a northern English mining town in 1984.

Not sure it really needed saying, but hey hum.

TTN,
As far as I can tell from your comment, you seem to be referring to people as hypocrites without proof they’ve done the thing you’ve merely wondered about.

Did you miss that bit?

I think there is a huge difference between disagreeing - even violently - with someone and looking forward to their death.

I disapprove of what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it. (Attrib: Voltaire) But that idea seems unpopular these days too...

It is interesting that when Gove savaged Corbyn during the no-confidence debate a few weeks ago, the only Labour interjection was not that it was untrue, but that it was irrelevant. Says it all really.

That’s how outrage works these days.

I couldn't agree more.

I see the Shadow Defence Secretary has chipped in with her thoughts on this. Whilst agreeing the incident was a misjudgement and videoing it an even bigger one, I have to say her intervention is an interesting signal in that it seems to be the first thing she has said for God knows how long. I may be wrong, but we haven't heard from her on any other Defence issues which have affected military personnel.

Yup, after all they probably cannot claim for it now...

At least they were shooting at him from the front and not like a lot of MP's from behind his back.
