The trouble with running the two blogs, EU Ref and Defence of the Realm is that each one needs virtually full time attention. And when one particular issue takes on a special prominence on one blog, content on the other unavoidably gets neglected.
With the news coming in today of a further two soldiers killed in Afghanistan, Royal Marines both, driving in a Jackal, bringing the total casualties to 300 in Iraq and Afghanistan, defence unfortunately has had to take most of my time today. Under the circumstances, I would rather it had not.
Anyhow, a longish post over at Defence of the Realm.
