Mine fought for the Empire, but he'd still count as a migrant. As I suppose I do, my son's partner and his two kids.

He's finally fucking lost it.
I'm not sure he ever had it.

Gets even dottier
The former Conservative chairman said the Tories, who only had one Scottish MP in the last parliament, should fold up in Scotland and form a joint pro-UK party. He said: “What is needed in Scotland from the Tories’ point of view is to wrap up the Conservative party and put down a little bit of fertiliser on the ground to encourage the growth of a Scottish unionist party. That’s what politics in Scotland is short of – a Scottish-rooted genuine unionist party like the Ulster Unionists were before Ted Heath mucked it up.”
Traitor Heath has a lot to answer for in Tebbit's eyes. it hasn't dawned on Tebbit that the likes of him played a large part in the Scottish Tory demise.

One had his birthday in the tiny slot where you didn't do either war.
Buy as a volunteer fireman he was deployed to London before the blitz.
After that his crew spent most of 42-45 "tidying up" the wrecks of friendly bombers that didn't quite make it home.
He had the worst case of PTSD from all his generation, including ones who'd flown ops, and gone toe to toe with the Japs and the Hun.

The other one was in the Royal artillery.
First under home command, then under the Royal West African Frontier Force and finally the Indian army

I wonder which "side" Mr Tebbit considers the Fire Service, RWAFF and Indian Army.

I've told this story on here before, but both my grandfathers were declared unfit to serve because of disabilities caused by preventable childhood illnesses.

Poverty and the lack of socialised medicine prevented them from making a full contribution.

This is the lesson that my grandparents learned and as a result voted for Atlee in massive numbers. And this is the lesson that Tebbit's generation quickly forgot.
