  1. Two stories really Grabbed me there; how despicable that we are Paying out to people who were feared to have killed British troops and that they were awarded this by the court of human rights! Makes my blood boil! Also the closure of RAF Halton. It seems there may be issues around it – time will tell on that one but I dare say it’ll go.
