You may have noticed that I'm prepared to post on virtually any subject, but one thing I've tried to avoid - except in passing - is Iraq. That is quite deliberate and I'm not going to get drawn on the reasons why. All I will say is that I support British troops to the hilt in all their endeavours wherever they may be.
It is also why I avoided commenting on the interview with General Sir Richard Dannatt that caused such a furore in the mainstream media and across the blogosphere. Like many, I suspect, I was annoyed that the MSM concentrated on just one aspect of Dannatt's interview and skipped over the other points, particularly those relating to the collapse of Christian morality in Britain.
Peter Hitchens has taken up this point on his blog and it is well worth a read. I like Hitchens immensely although I can find him irritating in the way he frequently creates a very convincing argument against something, but then fails to put forward any ideas to resolve the issue. I often read his articles and find myself thinking - "you're quite right, Peter, but what should we do about it?"
But in this case, Hitchens does offer a solution.
Whatever you do, whenever you can DO NOT VOTE TORY.
