Why is this ‘mealy-mouthed’ apologist running the FO

At a time when we
need someone with diplomatic strength of character running our Foreign Office,
we find that the sad apologist Margaret Beckett has insulted the entire nation
by apologising for our 1982 victory in the
Falkland Islands.

How dare she put
our fighting men and women in the same league as the Argentine aggressors,
especially at a time when they again have designs on the
Islands.  

Like the
Iranians, the Argentinians will be watching, listening, waiting for the signs
of weakness over the
Iran fiasco, but to reinforce her weakness in
this manner is unforgivable. She has now lost the moral right to ask our armed forces to do anything in this government's name.

This sickening apologist must be removed now, before she
does any more damage and costs more lives.

 

She has ruined
the lives of many people in every role that she has held in government so far,
with thousands of Bankruptcies and many suicides as the result of her actions
at Defra, which have also cost the British taxpayer in excess of £500 million.

Derek Cole, 50, a
Petty Officer on HMS Intrepid and now chief executive of the Falklands Veteran
Foundation, said: “Some veterans will feel insulted by this. Nobody in
Government has thought about talking to the veterans. Those who I've spoken too
all feel the same about it.” “The Argentinians were the aggressors.
An apology at this time will not get the veterans warming to the government. We
lost a lot of lives.”  

Denzill Connick,
50, from Blackwood, who served in the Parachute Regiment, said: “Margaret
Beckett shouldn't be making an apology, it was the Argentinians who started the
conflict when they invaded.

“Sacrifices
were made but it was a just war. We won the
Falklands back and Argentina benefited because they returned to a
democratic society.”  

Former Welsh
Guardsman Simon Weston, who suffered horrific injuries when a bomb exploded on
the troopship Sir Galahad, called Mrs Beckett's words 'mealy-mouthed' and
'disappointing'.

He added:
“The Argentine Government is really threatening the islands at the moment
yet Margaret Beckett is doing nothing to dissuade that.”  

Former Para Kevin
Ormond who now lives in the
Falklands with his wife Tina, said: “She is playing into
the Argentine Government's hand. For those families of the British lads that
never came back, this will be a hurtful remark.”

Les Hayhoe, 50,
of the Falklands Veteran Foundation, demanded: “Did we apologise for World
War Two? People who fought in the conflict should have been given more
recognition but now it's just an afterthought.”

NOW is the time for Beckett
to be forcibly retired, along with her husband, never to be heard of again.
