On Jezza and the Millies

September 2nd, 2008 § 0 comments

Clarkson in The Sun talking about The Millies:

I’M startled nobody has thought of doing this before.

It is like someone turning round and saying “God, I’ve just invented the plug for the electricity” and people saying “We’ve had electricity, but we’ve never had a plug.”

Oh, come on Jezza. You’re likening the armed forces and these tin-foil awards to electricity and plugs? A plug is an intergral part of an electrical appliance. The armed forces will work fine without these fake gongs.

It’s such a good idea.
Until now there has only been a very formal structure for awarding military medals and this is a great way of getting a wider audience.

A good idea for who, I wonder? What wider audience?

The truth is the military are very good at fighting wars, but very bad at telling people how they did it.

Maybe they’re not bad at telling how they fight wars, just they don’t want to tell how they do it.

This gives The Sun an opportunity to tell people what happened in a more exciting way.

Bingo! There’s the money shot. So that’s why it’s a good idea. It gives The Sun, not the forces, not the MOD, but The Sun an opportunity to bask in the reflected glory of the armed forces.

Its a pity that they don’t see it that way.
