    Opinions fall on political boundaries

    I have found the last few weeks of letters in the paper quite interesting. It appears that what is right, just and acceptable depends on which political party you belong to and which party is in power nationally.

    The unit, which arrived on post Monday in a convoy of buses, had spent the past 15 months in Iraq.
