Col Collins joins the campaign

Prescott not fit to press the tit.jpg BBC NEWS | Politics | 'Horror' at Prescott as acting PM

Colonel Collins, who hit the headlines for his eve-of-war speech to troops in Iraq, voiced his dismay at Mr Prescott taking charge.
"I have to say that the prospect of John Prescott running the country in the absence of Tony Blair is a prospect that fills me with horror," he told the BBC's Daily Politics.
"I have to say that the prospect of John Prescott running the country in the absence of Tony Blair is a prospect that fills me with horror," he told the BBC's Daily Politics.

"A man who on the BBC last week by his own admission struggles with a paper and pencil, and is incompetent by his own admission with technology, running two complex wars, and a number of other complex issues in the nation leaves me wondering who actually is running the nation.

"Is it the civil service behind the scenes? Or... this man who by his own admission is not up to the job?

"It does fill me with horror, and I feel sorry for the troops who are deployed at the risk of their lives on his behalf."

The fact that the gallant Lieutenant Colonel has a personal issue with the Govt. is understandable. However, to progress this by involving our armed forces is cowardly and unacceptable. Relatives have enough concerns about the safety and well-being of their loved ones without this individual restating them for his own ends.

John,

If a highly respected Colonel and former Commander in Iraq cannot raise these valid concerns, who can?

Lets see now, you address him as Lt Col, not Commander or full Colonel, you raise the point of his ‘personal issues with the Government’ call him ‘Cowardly’ and presumptuously claim to speak for ‘relatives’ voicing concerns about ‘safety and well-being’ and finally accuse him of being entirely motivated ‘for his own ends’.

I find it sickening that in your attempt to defend the indefensible or even mention the utterly useless Prescott, you are prepared to smear the character of a fine man, crawl back to your masters at No.10 and collect your 30 pieces of silver.

Pissweak attempt to shoot the messenger, John, you idiot.

Colonel Collins speaks with a far, far louder voice than you ever will, you pissant. Your sneering referral to the "gallant" Colonel was not missed. You wouldn't know gallantry if it bit you on the leg, and you have the gall to pronounce anonymously that Collins is a coward. Check the mirror, sunshine.

My apologies to our host for my unseemly language. Sometimes necessary to communicate with cretins.
