Paddy Ashdown: Afghanistan is not worth the life of one more British soldier

PoliticsHome has the front page of tomorrow's issue of The Times.

The lead story trails an article inside in which Paddy Ashdown says the war in Afghanistan is lost and not worth the life of one more British soldier.

I find it hard to disagree with this - it is been hard for some years now to discern what we are attempting to achieve in Afghanistan.

Paddy's article will be find behind The Times' paywall. In any case, thanks to the Guardian core readership strategy, I find myself buying The Times more and more these days.

Remember the rights of the savage, as we call him; remember that the happiness of his humble home, remember that the sanctity of life in the hill villages of Afghanistan, among the winter snows, is as inviolable in the eye of Almighty God, as can be your own.
