Prime Minister David Cameron took time out from his Easter holiday today to mark the 30th anniversary of the start of the Falklands War.
"Today is a day for commemoration and reflection: a day to remember all those who lost their lives in the conflict,the members of our armed forces."
In a pre- recorded interview, Jeremy Paxman asked a bemused Prime Minister to name one of the heroic casualties.
“Come on Prime Minister, you ask us to remember the fallen but you can’t even remember the name of a single one of them?”
“Well, erm, there was that corporal, corporal Jones, was that the name? Terrible burns to the face when he was aboard the Belgrano I believe. But he survived, I saw him the other day, hasn’t changed a bit”
