Another War Demo In Town
Members of the Sherwood Foresters (except they aren't anymore - they were merged into another regiment a while back) marched through town yesterday after their stint in Afghanistan. Now, we could all argue the toss about what constitutes heroism in this day and age, but I think we can all agree that running them through town on a Tuesday afternoon while most people are at work or school, being watched by less than half the people who turned out for a local DJ's funeral, says more about the success rate of the last six years military occupations than a million newspaper articles ever could. I'm not exactly the most pro-war person in Nottingham, but I think they probably deserved better, don't you?
