Rabid Tory MPs Misguided on Liam Fox

Rant at The Independent after nauseating Tory MPs try to smother the Liam Fox scandal by hiding him behind our troops:

Sirs,

I am getting sick and tired of rabid right-wing Tory MPs hiding behind our troops when it comes to getting answers about Liam Fox. “What would the troops in Afghanistan think about all this fuss over a business card?” they ask self-righteously.

Why not ask the question “What would the troops in Afghanistan think if the Defence Minister used the conflict that has killed hundreds of them, and maimed thousands, to make money for his best friend?”.

They seem strangely quiet on that one. I wonder why… Thank God we have a free media that is able to ask things like that.
