A mother has abandoned her campaign to get British troops home from Iraq in time for Christmas after being told to shut up by her embarrassed son.
Yvonne Gordon, 42, from Aberdeen, spoke out against the “illegal” war at a rally this month, just weeks after her 19-year-old son was deployed to Iraq. But now her son, Sammy Stewart, a private serving with the Gordon Highlanders in Basra, has asked her to keep quiet because she is embarrassing him.
Sammy joined up at her encouragement. (via FR)
