Downing Street has defended the way the prime minister writes to bereaved families after a dead soldier’s mother said Gordon Brown misspelled his name.

Guardsman Jamie Janes, 20, from Brighton, East Sussex, was killed in an explosion in Afghanistan in October.

The Sun newspaper said his mother Jacqui had described Gordon Brown’s letter as a "hastily scrawled insult".

In a statement, Downing Street said that the prime minister "would never knowingly misspell anyone’s name".

‘Half-finished’

Guardsman Janes, of 1st Battalion The Grenadier Guards, was killed in an explosion while on foot patrol in Helmand province.

According to the Sun, his mother Jacqui was angry when she received the prime minister’s letter of condolence in which he appeared to misspell Guardsman Janes’s name.

The paper has reproduced the handwritten letter.


"The reason he personally writes to every family is to acknowledge the debt of gratitude owed by the country to those who have died to protect the people of Britain"

Downing Street statement

Funeral for blast death soldier

Mrs Janes told the Sun that the letter was "scrawled so quickly I could hardly even read it" and that "some of the words were half-finished".

She described the letter as "disrespectful" and an "insult" to her son.

In a statement, Downing Street said the prime minister took a great deal of time writing to bereaved relatives.

It added: "The reason he personally writes to every family is to acknowledge the debt of gratitude owed by the country to those who have died to protect the people of Britain."

Mr Brown has previously admitted problems with his eyesight after a childhood rugby injury.

My view, .....
Mr Brown,
I saw the letter you sent Guardsman Janes mother on BBC News this morning, did you write it on your way down the stairs to the breakfast table?

In no way, shape or form did this 'message of sympathy and condolences' appear to be sincere and heartfelt. It certainly did not resemble a message one would expect to receive from a Prime Minister voicing the feelings of a grateful Nation.

It did however, seem to resemble a hastily scrawled shopping list on the back of a cigarette packet, a shopping list compiled by a semi articulate, uneducated oaf, at that.

I am however, not surprised at your disregard for our Servicemen and women. I recall your callous attitude towards government support for the recent D Day anniversary, and the lack of essential equipment supplied to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

You sir are an abomination. You hold your current post entirely by misguided chance. You show no respect to the people of this Nation. This Nation deserves better.

Here is the letter, judge for yourselves.

IMHO he is the one who should be written off.

I am not bumping my post but, while Guardsman Janes mother and family grieve their loss as are other families of fallen servicemen and the people of this country, the originator of this disgraceful scribbled memo is off partying and celebrating at our Nations expense in Germany.

You wanted the job Mr. Brown but you are not up to it nor fit for purpose, you are unable even to write a letter offering the Nations sympathy without causing further grief, suffering and unpleasantness.

For God's sake go!

Thank the Lord for that Lioned, if his dysfunctional brain ever managed to get off the mark he would be really dangerous
