"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Injured Troops Lose to Bollox Bob

Three judges have partly upheld the government's appeal and said that compensation paid to two injured soldiers must be 'reconsidered'.

The initial court action  to claw back compensation and this outcome highlight the stark difference between how government and MPs see themselves and the opinion the public have of them.

In related news it seems that the MoD is only  delivering six in ten kits on time:  "Military commanders have been struggling to get urgently needed vehicles, weapons and life-saving armour, according to a damning Commons report."

Let's not forget the role of former Armed Forces Minister, Tony McNumpty, in all this.
They are such despicable self-serving b@st@rds and use our troops for cheap political gain & then throw them on the trash heap when they're done with them - and Brown's set on sending out more .  The potential for damage this govt can do between now and May is intolerable.  Election Now!

  1. It is time to give Bob and his cronies some rifles and send them to Afghanistan, with cardboard vests, a lump of mouldy bread. And a 'see you in a year' card.

  2. If only ... The best we can do is dump them once and for all at election time.
