Remembrance Day

I have always enjoyed watching the march past at The Cenotaph on Remembrance Day. I find it quite emotional watching all the bemedalled veterans marching past The Cenotaph paying tribute to their fallen comrades. It is almost a show of strength from the nation. A show of determination, respect, loyalty and comradeship. Each has a personal story and they are determined that someone will not be forgotten.

As usual everything is timed to perfection until it came to the time for Gordon Brown to lay his wreath. He placed it in postion, stood up, took the required paces back and then stared directly in front of him. I waited for him to bow his head but he turned left and walked off having insulted the whole ceremony.

Following behind him David Cameron appeared to make a pointed gesture by bowing his head in a manner which could not be ignored and everyone else paid their respect to the fallen properly. Only our disgraceful PM could not do the job with dignity and frankly I was disgusted.
