Andy McNab backs the Conservatives
Bravo Two Zero hero Andy McNab, who voted Labour in 1997, has now decided to publicly back David Cameron's Conservatives. After talks with David Cameron, he told the Sun newspaper: "Without doubt, the Tories are the future. I'm impressed by Cameron and the straight answers he gave to my questions.
"I believe he does get the Forces and what they need. And I think he has the will to see Afghanistan through.
"Now is not the time to go wobbly about the war."
David Cameron responded: "Andy's backing means a huge amount to us.
"Defending our country is the first responsibility of any government.
"For everything they are doing for us in Iraq and Afghanistan, I want to see the concerns of our Forces and their families far higher up the agenda than they are at the moment. With Andy, we have got someone who has been at the sharp end and who has a huge understanding of what our Forces need."
