Ben Griffin opens by saying that fighting for Queen and Country is just a piece of propaganda dreamt up by the false religion of Patriotism.
He says those who will never actually fight hold this notion dearly. Having been in the SAS he tells of his experiences of what pain and suffering war inflicts on the innocent and how any military group will not fight for Queen and Country but will fight when they are told because they are trained for warfare.
