Nadine Dorries:

I am really not that happy with the fact that every news outlet is splashing around the news that Prince William, second in line to the throne, is going to be sitting on a boat in the Caribbean for a few months.

We are at war on a number of fronts, with terrorists having access to weaponry and technology equal to that of our allies.

Am I alone in thinking this level of openness may be a tad rash?

Fuck me!! How shrill are you nadine?
I don’t think you need to worry about the hier to the throne just yet.

You say we are at war with terrorists who have access to arms equal to ours. But from what I’ve heard, they don’t have aircraft carriers, destroyers, fighter jets, tanks, laser guided missiles, torpedoes, intercontinental missiles and a fuck load of the little gadgety things that soldiers have.

What they do have are mortars, rocket launchers, suicide bombers using homemade explosives, some of which gets as far as the detonator going off before going splat in a soggy lump on the ground and they could probably get their hands on a boat if they wanted to. All of which is not really comparable to a modern standing army.

You could say that for all their technological disadvantage they’re not dong too badly. But then, they’re still not as successful as the pIRA were and secondly it’s a fuckload harder to sneak up on someone in the middle of the carabean when there’s no one about that it is to drive a car or lorry, packed with explosives, through some gates.

I think Prince William will be alright this time.
