I see that there are now fears that the troops in Afghanistan may be disenfranchised, at least as far as this election is concerned.
It seems that there will not be enough time to make sure that all there votes arrive back in Blighty in time for counting. Something about the availability of helicopters!!!!
What? Whaaaaaaat!!! Does no one plan ahead these days. Is there no-one bothered enough to make sure that those who put their lives on the line to bring democracy to others have the chance to contribute to the democratic process in their own country?
It wouldn't be anything to do with the fact that Labour fear the overwhelming majority of the troops will NOT be voting for Labour? No, of course not, silly cynical me
