I try to keep a lot of personal things out of this blog, but I have to give Adrian Sudbury a mention in the hope that more people can feel how I feel right now. I am sat in the office, trying my best not to get too emotional about this, and I will be honest, I am finding it hard (yes my eyes are a little damp). I am not an emotional guy. I think the only other person who could ever make me feel like this is my mother, who is everything to me.
I often sit there and rant about how this country (England) is falling apart at the seams. No one seems to give a damn about each other, what this country used to stand for (both individually and as Great Britain), or where its headed. Then someone like Adrian pops out of the woodwork and blows me away with an awesome display of courage, selflessness, bravery and a hell of a personality to boot.
He has recently had a huge success in his campaign and got a personal mention at the house of commons by Prime Minister, Gordon Brown who refers to him as his “honourable friend”.

Very well done. Very well done indeed.
I can honestly say last time I felt this humble was when I had the privilege and honour of meeting some veterans of WWII. Adrian, you have joined the ranks of great men in my mind.
“Great occasions do not make heroes or cowards; they simply unveil them to the eyes of men.”
Keep swinging brother.
