Apache helicopter and a Liberal leaflet!
An afternoon off campaigning yesterday as I managed to get a large amount of leaflets out in the morning, so that I could see Ipswich play their last game ever at Layer Road against Colchester United. That is enough said about the football!!
But whilst having a pre game beer in The Dragoon pub in Colchester, I came across this Lib dem leaflet for Bob Russell the Colchester MP. I just could not believe it, there was a picture of Bob, in desert combats- not sure about the belt or rank badge- but he was stood in front of an Apache Helicopter- one of the British Army's deadliest machines - Just not sure how that can be the main picture on a Liberal leaflet when in most of the county they try and put themselves forward as the ant-war party. Now as MP for Colchester, he should be visiting troops all over the world- but to have a smiling picture in front of an Apache helicopter? then again that may have been a better picture than the one of him being "cuddled" by the Colchester United mascot- some sort of half eagle/half pigeon bird.
