Compare and contrast...


L/Cpl Kenneth Rowe RAVC



Lance Corporal Kenneth Rowe, 24, who was shot dead by Taliban insurgents on Thursday, had been due to leave front-line duties the day before, but had persuaded his superiors to let him stay because he was worried about the lack of cover.



Michael Martin, 'Speaker' of the Whorehouse of Commons


...It shows just how Michael Martin has enriched himself and his family at our expense. In many ways the Speaker symbolises all that is wrong with our parliamentarians, the arrogant sense of self entitlement, the dodgy payments to family and friends, the desperate desire to keep it all in the shadows and out of sight of the voters.


I have nothing to add.
