Gordon Brown will say Britain is doing the "right thing" in Afghanistan in a speech later, a day after a ministerial aide quit over government strategy.
Labour MP Eric Joyce, a parliamentary aide to the defence secretary, resigned saying a time limit should be set on troop deployment.
The prime minister will say: "When the security of our country is at stake we cannot walk away."
He will also say that financial and logistical support is being increased.
What's all this "will say" future tense bullshit? If he hasn't said it yet, why the fuck are they publishing it? Is it because they've been sent a script by Number 10 and told to report it as front-page, headline news (which I'd point out, it has been)? And people say the government don't control the media? Fuck sake.
The BBC's political editor Nick Robinson said Mr Brown's aides were keen to stress that the speech was not a response to Eric Joyce's resignation and had been planned for some time.
But yet, entirely coincidentally of course, it's going to be made today? Just another fucking example of how stupid those in power think we are.
He said Downing Street was more concerned about criticism in the The Sun newspaper, which has accused the prime minister of not showing leadership on Afghanistan.
So what the fuck are they going to do? Shut it down?
Welcome to China.
