A Vile Betrayal of our servicemen/women

Post  octavian on Wed Aug 26, 2009 10:54 am

Hello Brothers

Some of you may have received an email from me with the following disgraceful news - I have sent an email to PGO Gov. 10 Downing St - Asking the PM to confirm or deny the information - As of now I have had no response - May I suggest that if no response is received that you contact as many of your friends as possible and deluge the offices of "New Labour " and demand an explanation from the Man in position to answer " one way or the other" MM aka Octavian ( copy of the email is availiable via the link provided - @ Octavian - Profile )


Badly wounded soldiers have had their disability benefits secretly slashed by as much as half by penny-pinching bosses at the Ministry of Defence.

Troops whose working lives are cut short after injuries sustained while fighting will no longer be paid a special £57-a-week allowance.

The move came after the MoD quietly dropped the benefit for new claimants who are too disabled to work.

It means hundreds of troops who have been injured in Afghanistan and in future conflicts will be £3,000-a-year worse off.

Around 12,000 veterans receive the allowance. But from April the rules have been changed so that those whose injuries leave them unable to work are not entitled to the benefit.

Critics called the cuts 'morally indefensible' when combat casualty rates are at a record high, and accused ministers of trying to save cash through 'invisible' cuts targeting hard-up wounded veterans.

British forces in Afghanistan suffered their worst month to date in July, with 22 soldiers killed and 94 wounded in battle.
