  1. No swearing in the army?? What next? Apologising to recruits for getting them up early? This is the nanny state gone mad again. We are supposed to be preparing our young recruits for the very serious business of combat. If they are going to be upset by instructors swearing, perhaps a different career should be considered. Liberalism is eroding our society.

  2. The scary thing is Tony, they would introduce that sort of nonsense if Mr. Corbyn had his way. We live in an increasingly dangerous world, and instead of taking appropriate measures to protect ourselves, we are tying our own hands by applying extreme liberal values to our military. If it wasn’t so worrying I would be laughing at the absurdity of it all.
