Afghan envoys get pool while our troops go thirsty

With all the stories in the papers about the military lately you would be forgiven for thinking that our soldiers are neglected by our government but apparently they are not. Our armed forces minister thinks the government is doing their best for the armed forces.

If the government are doing their best it is strange to find out that the Foreign Office spent tens of thousands of pounds on an 18 metre pool and gym for their bureaucrats in their embassy in Afghanistan. It takes an estimated 50,000gallons of water to fill - enough to supply soldiers fighting the Taliban in the southern Helmand Province with 750,000 250ml bottles of water.
