And the other 60 000 still in bed or on their sofas ne.

Idiots can’t count either 10,000 boots is 5000 soldiers , or did they only call in the ones with one boot ???

10000 boots? So, 5000 soldiers? Ah, I am simply stirring the pot, of course. In effect, this is too little, even now. Too late? For sure. But the tax payer will pick up the tab; just another straw.
