British Nuclear Test Veterans

Discussion in 'Current Affairs' started by Billy Q, Apr 16, 2016.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The United Nations has awarded Consultative Status to British Nuclear Test Veterans.

    In June of this year (2016) the Mod will, again, be spending vast amounts feebly defending their last fiasco.

    They have again engaged expensive civilian lawyers attempting to fob off the Christmas Island guinea pigs. The MOD employs hundreds of salaried lawyers-none of whom are up to the job of representing them in Higher Courts.

    The latest re-trial arises from their previous attempts, in a court of law, at deception. The judge caught them out.

    They spent vast sums attempting to defend their illegal actions on:-

    1 Porton Down Common Cold Volunteers

    2. Asbestos contamination

    3. Nuclear Test Veterans

    And lost or will lose.

    They will lose again this time now that British Nuclear Test Veterans have the UN batting for them.

    In a few years time there wont be many of us BNTV left alive. Maybe that's the plan?
  3. A war the MOD are particularly keen to fight---Attrition--and lose!
  4. Have to agree with you Granny. Although I wasn't there, I knew a guy who was and he suffered from various illnesses all related to Christmas Island. Although medical specialists pleaded his case, MOD dragged their feet so much that Ian eventually died. However, they stopped his pension within days of him dying!

    There many stories similar to that one. No matter how many fight for justice it doesn't happen. Too many have died in the intervening years to be a coincidence. The older we get though the harder it becomes to prove that it's not just old age that's popping us off.

    To think how close, I personally, got to volunteering for the 'Cold Cure' at Porton Down in the 50's. Scares the pants off me. A lot of my mates went.
  7. Just the two of us on Rum Ration presumably.

  15. And Gulf War Syndrome if we use our troops to do their duty then we should support them by bringing back Military Hospitals and not rely on charities to support them.(What Military Covenant)
