Events on Saturday 7th Oct

Tony will save the day ;-)
LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Tony Blair has pledged to give British troops in Afghanistan whatever equipment they need in their "very, very tough" fight against the Taliban.

Britain has faced unexpectedly fierce resistance since sending the first large foreign force to the southern province of Helmand this year as part of a NATO peacekeeping mission.
The government has been accused of underestimating the Taliban and sending in a force lacking manpower and equipment.

Our guess is that what they would like are some days off, some decent equipment and some better air support. Remember folks that this was the Peace Keeping mission that John Reid suggested would not involve firing a single bullet. How bloody wrong can you be and still retain any credibility. Answers on a postcard please!
