I and thousands of others in this country, who were feeling mighty uncomfortable over the 'cash for story' about to be made to the 15 - (actually - it seems only 2 or 3 were accepting this offer - many of the others declined to..) Des Brown today has reversed the decision - in the face of country wide uproar, and protests from Military scources. They cannot now sell their stories. Will Faye Turney now give her money to charity etc.
We were caught with our trousers down. The MOD tried to 'pass the buck' to the 15 - the Tabloids would have had a field day with them. The journalists would have printed their own version of their story, and they would have regretted it. Their lives would have been made hell back with their 'oppo's'
These are good people - but are pawns in a much bigger game. Our reputation in the world is zilch - and the Yanks are lovin' it!
