As per usual our friend brown is jumping in the bandwagon.
I think it is about time he is taken down a peg or two.
I not sure how, but the best I can think of is to vote it out of office alongside all his cronies.
Ooh, Ooh ! Not only do you get medals for being in a war zone, after 25 years some prick decides you can have a badge?
Anyone who has been to a war has their medals, why the hell would they want a poxy badge?
"It is the aim, eventually, to include all those who Served in HM Armed Forces, however the demand for the badge continues to be high. There will be further extensions to the scheme on a chronological basis when the current demand has been fulfilled."
And as for subset wearing one on his uniform...
"The badge is a survivorsâ€™ badge, which is to be worn on civilian attire."
the badge is OK, lets people know that some did survive the politicians cock ups! (more by luck than judgement) It's that stupid Veterans Day gets me going - why the Hell 27th June or was it July what the Hell happened then? We've got our day 11th of the 11th - if the goverment really whats to prove it cares about its 'old soldiers' (ha! ha! thata's a joke of course it bloody doesn't, but it could get votes) How about making the 11th November a Bank Holiday? let everybody remember it properly, like the rest of Europe does (but I forget theyv'e been occupied and can remember what it's like, this shower, can't even be bothered to watch war films in case someone calls a foreigner a naughty word!)
I was only joking. I only kept the issued jimjams for kit musters. Actually wearing them was inviting scorn, derision and possibly physical violence (of a heterosexual kind of course!) No, it was underpants for me like all my messmates.
