It appears that England has disappeared off the map.
Sally Nightingale has asked David Cameron for “five minutes of his time” in return for her husband Danny’s 17 years of service in the Army.
Sgt Nightingale, 37, is serving an 18-month sentence for possession of a firearm after a pistol given to him by Iraqi forces he trained was found in a locked box in his Army accommodation while he was on tour.
The SAS sniper had forgotten about its existence because of brain damage caused when he collapsed during an endurance sport event in which he was taking part to raise funds for the families of dead and injured SAS soldiers.
In a letter, reproduced below, Mrs Nightingale pleads with the Mr Cameron not to “ignore” her family “in the hour of our greatest need” and urges him to intervene directly into her husband’s case.
