I haven't seen this on the tv. John-Boy is quoting the Daily Mail.

Need I say more?

Yes.

Are you denying the existence of the videos or claiming the videos were not made by the British Army?

It appears the DM has hacked the BBC and several other media outlets :

BBC

Quote:
he new adverts, which are all voiced by serving soldiers, are part of the Army's "belonging campaign".

They ask: "What if I get emotional?", "Can I be gay in the Army?" and "Do I have to be a superhero?"

In one, a Muslim soldier explains how the army has allowed him to practise his faith.


Jesus, the army has become limp.

Out of general interest, and I know we've got a few ex armed forces here, what would have happened if you asked your immediate superior the following question :

"What if I get emotional?"

You'd probably get more time to think about it while cleaning toilets... of the whole base.

So... what exactly is your objection? Clearly you object to something, I can't quite clearly see what.

That's a good question. It's kind of hard to say, off hand, because I never saw it happen.
