should male soldiers be allowed to wear makeup?

Posted 1st Oct
I don't see why not.

I was a much-decorated member of the parachute regiment during the second world war.

I remember after a particularly hazardous mission I was summoned to meet field-marshal montgomery himself.

"seb", he said - "you are the bravest soldier I ever knew" - tears streaming down his face.

"although why are you wearing so much make-up?"

Predkiuesi - not necessariy.

Derek - the british army is still class-bound in many respects.

it should be possible for someone to join as private and work himself or herself up the ladder to become chief of the general staff but how often does that happen?

anyway I expect britain will soon be at war :

Remainers v Brexiteers
Be careful of being perceived as intolerant, it's 2019.

^This^ close to a civil war.


Not really, but there's plenty of rhetoric and empty words. Not much action though.

It only been 3 years to be fair. We can't expect a miracle, like being prepared for brexit, or having a plan.

I've been coming on here less and less for ages. And then the site was sanitised with industrial grade bleach.

Got my free mug though!

You really think it will come to that? We are not city or town based, but I see no evidence of this being a remote possibility. Yes, there are tensions in those factions across the country. Yes, the current political class is showing a woeful disregard for the national interest. But a Civil War? I can foresee isolated local flare ups between small groups of extremists, but nothing that would escalate beyond a few dozens with nothing better to do. If the cancelling of 'Jeremy Kyle' didn't motivate these people.to take to the streets, I can't imagine what will.

Yeah, the article showed an image of the rules that said women were allowed to wear make up and men weren't.

It is an odd one as the conservative politician in question appears to be more of a reasonable one than most. He's not the ex-UKIP member you'd expecting to be making that sort of comment but one of the first to share his expenses on the expenses scandal and someone who voted remain.

He is an ex-army officer himself though, so perhaps it's an army culture thing. It could easily be the army developed an over-sensitivity to this from using camouflage makeup when there was social prejudice against it.

God forbid.

As you know I argued stongly (or weakly if the result means anything) for REMAIN - almost every negative I suggested in these posts has since came to pass - the accuracy of my predictions even stunned me ( I've been playing the lotto ever since but my predictions for that have been woeful).

We lost a democratic vote.
If we are not going to accept democracy we might as well return to the caves.

I hate the result but I believe democracy is worth fighting for - if we ever did go to war over this matter then I would have to take the side of LEAVERS for the sake of upholding our democracy.

It's not that straightforward as we then went on to elect a large majority of remain MPs in the general election the year after. But general politics are against site rules so let's not get into that.

I'm not, there's no point, we had a democratic vote - we lost - that's democracy, and I fully support democracy therefor I fully support the result.
