MOST Britons believe the increasingly bloody war in Afghanistan is "unwinnable" and want troops pulled out, an opinion poll said today, as more soldiers' bodies were flown home.
The dead servicemen were honoured a day after Britain announced the end of a major offensive in southern Afghanistan and outlined a change of strategy following a sharp spike in deaths.
ComRes telephoned 1,008 British adults on 24-26 July 2009. Data were weighted by past vote recall. ComRes is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules. Full tables at www.comres.co.uk.

If the tories were in power, everyone would be screaming how it's all the fault of the conservatives.
Notice how none of these threads make recognition of the fact that it's your glorious Labour Party that is leading you down the path to war.
We have noticed a similar shift in attitudes here in the US with Obama, it's now almost as if the war in Afghanistan just "happened" not that he's keeping us there.
However, I've stated it lots of times before - when people sign up to be soldiers and play with guns, they might get killed. If they're not happy with that, then they should find another line of work.

They will lose the next election and then in about 12 years time everyone will be sick of the Tories and vote Labour in again. Repeat to fade.
