The Armed service men and women lay their life down for our country, and this thread is fast descending into puerile banality, taking away from the great gesture of MTFC.
Nonsense, no one is criticising the armed forces in any way whatsoever.
Edders dangled a maggot in front of Bellers and predictably (more predictably than the next high tide) he fell for it hook line and sinker.
In fact he not only fell for it, he went full belmer
Interesting to read his views (you have to be in the club it to criticise it) and will look forward to reminding him of that when he (predictably) criticises any profession.
In short, he’s made himself look a bit daft
Of course history shows us that without the British army, the French would now be speaking German. But without the RAF, WE would be speaking German
You just don’t get it. Nor would I expect you to.
Oh I get it
And I get you
I’ve worked alongside doz’s of ex military lads.
The vast vast majority are sound well grounded and would run through a brick wall for you, but a few appear to share the same characteristics as you.
Always “black catting”
Single, spending their evenings getting banned from social media or surfing porn sites
I had 2 ex marines, 1 ex para and one Ex RTC? On my last watch (from what I gather he used to drive low loaders around Germany a lot squashing cars) anyway, guess which one was a pain in the arriss? Yep the lorry driver. He wanted to fight everyone, argue with everyone, what he hadn’t done wasn’t worth doing, he’d personally met every celeb going (twice). Never shut up about IRA, Thatcher, Corbyn, civvies, and he always tried to hide his lack of education by correcting people’s grammar and inserting long words into sentences that no one understood (even him)
To his credit he was good at trivial pursuit, and making up insults, but that was about it.
Being in the forces is something to be proud of (I’m immensely proud of my serving son) but i’ll be devastated if he turns out like you.
Except you don’t know me. You hardly know nothing about me, yet you rush to condemn and pigeonhole me. You also make the insinuation that I lack intelligence. How arrogant of you.
If your son turns out like me, he’ll have done OK. A coal miner’s son that is now the Engineering Manager for a global Satcom provider. I think I’ve done not too bad thanks.
You just carry on with your pee poor sweeping generalisations. I’ve met more gobshites in civvy street than I ever did in the Armed Forces. Well done to your son for his stepping up. If only more had his testicular fortitude.
