I see that in that lovely city of Edinburgh soldiers have been deployed on the streets to clear the snow. It is a real credit to them that they are helping the public in return for the public support.
I just mused privately how this could turn into a nightmare. Soldiers on the streets? No it could not happen in the UK today could it? We have seen the scenes in London today. We have heard David Cameron promising to bring the troops out of Afghanistan as soon as he can.
Perhaps we will need them!
