Tommy this, an' Tommy that

St Lucia-born Rogers Jean-Baptiste has had his application for British citizenship turned down. Reason: he had to have been on British soil five years to the day before he made his application. And he wasn't. He was in Germany. In a British army uniform. Since when he's served two tours of duty in Iraq.

Kipling, I feel, wouldn't have been surprised. Though of course we've moved on a bit since his day. In these enlightened times we think even less of Tommy when he's getting shot at.

Hat tip to the Dumb One.
