The End of Week Quote

Congratulations to a Very British Commando who despite the threat of a Court-Marshal wrote the letter we post below in today's Daily Telegraph.

Sir - I am a serving Royal Marine Commando who has just returned from a combat outpost in Helmand province, where I will shortly be returning.

I read your report (November 30) concerning Marines' pay with interest.

Cost-cutting measures employed by the MoD on combat operations are increasingly impressive; cheap defective bullets, insufficient helicopters, reduced pay entitlements. I suspect that if I no longer required the use of them, then my organs would also be auctioned on Ebay.
