The prime minister has said the public want to see armed forces members in their uniforms - after advice to conceal them in public was relaxed.
A defence source had told the BBC the advice was a "common sense" step during the Woolwich attack investigation.

I’m betting their email servers crashed and their phone lines busied out.
What a bunch of crap. I know the soldiers have to be mad as hell.

Just dreaming of a non politically correct world.
They should wear their uniforms and destroy any terrorist that attack on sight.
I’m retarded, I thought it said don’t wear uniforms...my bad.
They are targets now. Let them carry firearms. Problem solved.
If soldiers want to go off base in uniform, they should. They should also be allowed to carry loaded sidearms as part of their uniforms. If that man could have defended himself, there would be two dead “Asians” lying in the street instead of him. And he wouldn’t have danced in the blood.

That sounds like a great idea to me.
They were against wearing uniforms before they were for it.
No concealed carry. Strap that semi auto issued across your back locked and loaded!

Pretty much certain it is both against UK military regs and civilian law for UK military members to carry knives offbase if the knife isn’t justified by job description and is in transit between employment and residence.
Mind you that is for a small pocket knife.
The UK has raised men without chests.
I’m curious what brilliant mind suggested that Brittish Solders cower
by not wearing their uniforms?
They should wear their uniforms with issued side arms.
I think they should wear their uniforms. It was the UK government that said they shouldn’t, until the backlash made them switch back.
I propose a “wear BDU’s to work day” worldwide, in order to let the godless Muslim pukes know that this will not be tolerated and if a fight is what they want, a fight is what they shall get!
I meant the “who” in the UK. A name
