    1. Just felt a little weepy and a bit angry when I watched it last night Simon…….and I’m not sure if that’s how you’re supposed to feel …..it’s just that I know there an awful lot of exservicemen/women who suffer with mental health problems and they often have a really bum deal once they have left the forces …..they HAVE been slightly better looked after since the was in Afghanistan ….and maybe things are improving.
      But I wonder how those watching would feel about watching these ‘heroic’ people ….will it uplift them or compound feelings of inadequacy and isolation
      War …and sending young people into it is just shit basically isn’t it?

      Maybe I was in a funny kind of mood yesterday anyway …….watching the choir was immediately after watching the news and Cameron’s gaffe, the arrogance of which had probably set the scene for how I was feeling

      I don’t usually watch tv much really ….maybe this kind of thing is why:)

      Anyway …..another day ….have a good one Mr 🙂

      1. You feel how you feel at the end of the day. Thie thing is with this kind of thing is that you’re only shown what they want you to see and the attitudes of society in general are very poor towards mental illness. This is also a government issue where they sweep it under the carpet and pretend it doesn’t exist and that’s for everyone, not just ex-servicemen.

        The long and short of it is as you say, it’s shit having to send our young men and women out to war but even more shit that we don’t look after many of them properly when they return.

        Uless you only watch Dave, TV is a bad thing. You have a good day too lady 🙂
        Chin up!

    1. Yep, wise words ……we need to feeeeeeeel the emotions to come to some kind of understanding of ourselves ……………it’s called being human …..what would we be without emotion ……..life and emotions aren’t always meant to be an easy ride:)
