Rogue Gunner Says It All

Tuesday, 28 July 2009

Cato is right. It's a shameful disgrace.

If you haven't already visited Rogue Gunner's blog, here's the link to the blog and the full article:
"On a day when the bodies of four UK servicemen are flown back home after making the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan the MOD are in the Court of Appeal. Why may you ask are they costing the British tax payer tens of thousands in legal bills? To make the lives of our young injured servicemen some who have horrific injuries better? No, they are once again making our Heroes fight another battle for adequate compensation that must last them for the rest of their lives.
Sometimes your longest War begins when you hand your uniform in and rejoin civvie street."
That's from a man who's been in the thick of war and knows what it's like. He also knows what it's like to be on civvie street with PTSD and no support. We ask so much of our Armed Forces; is it too much for us to demand our government treats them better? So many charities are springing up in an effort to fill the void left by government. Here's a link to Help for Heroes.

I also read in the Standard this evening that Bob Ainsworth has gone on holiday today. It would be interesting if that could be confirmed...
