Snatch Land Rovers - two more troops killed

Two British soldiers have been killed in fighting with Taleban forces in Afghanistan, officials have confirmed.

The troops were on night patrol in Sangin, in the volatile southern province of Helmand, when they were attacked by Taleban militia...

The BBC's Alastair Leithead, with British troops in Afghanistan, has confirmed that the two soldiers killed had been travelling in a fortified "Snatch" Land Rover
Government procurement minister Lord Drayson on June 12 this year:
I do not accept that Snatch Land Rovers are not appropriate for the role... The Snatch Land Rover provides us with the mobility and level of protection that we need.
If you're not up to speed on this scandal go to EU Referendum and read up.

Two more troops sacrificed to Tony and Gordon's cost-cutting and deference to EU policy.
