Cameron's British forces tribute

Cameron's British forces tribute
David Cameron and Ed Miliband have both paid tribute to Britain’s armed forces.

The Prime Minister visited Afghanistan, where he said troops had paid a "high price" for their work, but said soldiers' efforts had been a "success" and that their presence had reduced the number of terrorist plots.

Ed Miliband also hailed the work of the troops, sending them a Christmas message today.

“You are protecting the interests of the people of Britain. You are working for a better future for the people of Afghanistan. And you can be proud to be part of a long and honourable history of men and women who have served our country with honour, selflessness and bravery,” the Labour leader said.
