Dan Hardie has the latest, following recent (rather odd) newspaper rumours of a change in government policy on the UK’s attitude to those who have worked for the British army in Iraq, and who now face torture and death as a result.
As David Cameron has (literally) just said in the Commons, “people who have risked their lives for Britain should never be let down by Britain”. The thing to remember, however, is that it’s not just the interpreters who have risked their lives, but every Iraqi who has done any kind of job for the army out there. They should not be let down either.
Oh, and the venue for tomorrow’s meeting’s had to change at the last minute.
