This is a subject I covered over on the Ghost Cabinet blog a few days ago, good to see the national press catching up.
Brown would love to win a PR coupe by announcing that British troops are pulling out of Iraq, it would also enable him to put some extra troops into Afghanistan. The Army would love to have fewer commitments and the soldiers in Basra who are getting mortared almost not stop wouldn’t mind going home either.
So all’s well then.
Except that the US don’t want us to leave just yet, because if we do they are going to have to take up the slack. So….. Who is Brown going to disappoint, the UK or the USA?
Let’s watch and see.
