Injured Taliban treated in British military hospital

Britain's long-held values of decency, fairness and compassion are increasingly being eroded these days.

Margaret Thatcher's ridiculing of "society", Loadsamoney's lauding the new-selfishness of the "me" generation, the divisiveness of cultural diversity, the jargon-choking liberals' imposition of political correctness, pan-Europeanism and the dictats of the European Court of Human Rights, etc, etc, have all been conspiring to subvert, dilute and diminish Britiain's social values.
Against this cultural tsunami, Britain's Armed Forces have managed to maintain their values and traditions and as a result remain one of the few institutions which still make us proud to be British.

Yesterday the BBC led the media pack with the story that "British soldiers are unhappy injured colleagues are being treated on the same ward as Taleban militants at an Afghanistan field hospital". The story is based on the comments of a couple of soldiers which the BBC and the rest of the media have chosen to exploit.

It is a long-held and honoured British military tradition that injured enemy soldiers receive emergency medical care comparable with that given to our own troops, even if that can mean sharing a ward.

It is not surprising that the BBC should be playing the lead role in trying to subvert this military tradition for ironically it is the British (or is that Biased?) Broadcasting Corporation which is in the vanguard of the forces seeking to undermine our traditional values and our cultural identity. (It's probably because the BBC is made up of ex-teachers.)

NB. The red cross forms part of our national flag.
