GORDON BROWN gave a public apology today to
the families of three soldiers killed in Afghanistan
for sending them letters of condolence two
years late.
He said an “unacceptable error” led to them
being missed out in cases which all date back to
2007. The Prime Minister used a press conference
to “apologise unreservedly” and said he had
ordered a thorough review to prevent repeats of

the bureaucratic mistakes. “I can only apologise
to the families and I want to send my heartfelt
condolences to them,” he said.
“They have my profound thanks for the invaluable contribution that their loved ones have been
making to make Britain safe.
“I understand their grief and sadness at a time
when they have lost so much.” The father of 21year-old Trooper Jack Sadler, killed in Helmand
by a roadside bomb in December 2007, criticised

NICOLAS SARKOZY was today forced
to cancel a visit to London after Gordon
Brown refused to fit in a meeting
with him.
The French president asked to come
to Britain and talks are understood to
have been held about a visit tomorrow.
But this was called off after Downing
Street refused to rearrange the Prime
Minister’s diary.
Sources said No 10 was not “in the
mood” to cancel engagements for the
French president’s benefit after his
“inflammatory” comments on a victory
over Britain on the City.
Mr Sarkozy sparked fury in the Square
Mile by gloating over the appointment
of former French foreign minister
Michel Barnier as EU commissioner for
the internal market. He said: “Do you
know what it means for me to see for
the first time in 50 years a French European commissioner in charge of the
internal market, including financial
services, including the City?”
Downing Street insisted that ditching
the meeting was not meant as a deliberate snub. But a Whitehall source said:
“Frankly we were not in the mood to
start moving things around.”
