    Shortly after going solo she went to do a gig for British troops who were building up in the Middle East on the eve of the 2003 Iraq War. She insisted on hospitality arrangements that were almost equal to one of Saddam Hussein's luxury palaces- an air-conditioned trailer with satellite TV, internet connection and a hairdressing salon, expensive food, a fully-stocked bar, a jacuzzi bathroom, and a seperate van containing her wardrobe. All of this in contrast to the privations that the soldiers themselves were having to put up with, and none of them knowing whether they were about to die or not. Veteran WW2 singer Vera Lynn had more than a few things to say about that- good on you, Vera!!
