|Armed Forces Scabs - Unite branch secretary Donald McDougall|
A UNION militant has caused a storm after branding as "scabs" soldiers being trained to drive fuel tankers.
wrote on Facebook: "If the Army take action in this dispute, they cannot call it ’duty’. Be honest, wear the badge ’scab’ with pride."
His remarks brought a furious response from other posters. One said: "Your post is an insult to the Armed Forces." Another added: "You are an absolute disgrace."
Unite last night distanced itself from McDougall, who works at Honda’s Swindon factory. A spokesman said: "Some of our tanker driver representatives are ex-Army and some have children serving in Afghanistan."
Phil B - Lets see him say that on the next Fireman’s strike and his house is on fire or Ambulance Strike and his child is choking or severely ill!
It must be accepted as a principle that the rifle, effective as it is, cannot replace the devastation produced on the enemy by the speed of the horse, the magnetism of the charge, and the terror of cold steel. - British Army Cavalry training manual 1907
