Downing Street was plunged into a row with Scotland Yard today after soldiers’ relatives were banned from laying a wreath outside No10.
Families of those killed and serving in Iraq reacted with fury when police told them they could not make the gesture or hold a minute’s silence on the steps of the Prime Minister’s residence.
A No 10 spokeswoman blamed police for the ban, but was forced to backtrack once Scotland Yard pointed out that its officers were following orders.
This war was lost before it started. No more pointless deaths.
