I'm with you lot on this one.
I left 7 years ago ,left with nothing more than a 8K handshake ,no mortgage no benefits no housing and a pile of bills, 5 medals on my chest and a
set of rods from the system as I walked out the gate past the Guard room for the last time ,left to stew in an environment I didn't understand
properly (Resettlemt was a Joke) and people who didn't care too much for me and my skills,the Govenrment doesn't give a S@@$ about you and I they
had their pound of flesh from you and then toss you to one side redundant and lost in Civ Div.
My Regt was formed in 1702 it's gone through changes galour ,a proud Yorkshire Regt ,a family orientated Regt with a glorious history along with
other commendations and VC's to boot you've sailed us down the river without so much as a blink of an eye, losing years of history in the name of
money saving and the penny pinching system ,Mr Cameron you're a clown,a spineless puppet along with the defence dancing bears you all make a very
good line up for Billy Smarts Circus (AKA Westminster) ,you've sold me and others down the river ,along with those still fighting in a country miles
from home having packed up for 6 months their entire lives in MFO boxes and a look forward to 2 weeks off at some point and you pay yourself
handsomely for sitting with other members of the elitist political club from around the globe having never put yourself in the line of fire ,you PPO
does that ,get fit you KNA@£$@ pick up some CBA a bin lid,rounds and a rifle and put your neck on the line for your country like hundreds of
thousands of lads before have done for their country only to have there hearts ripped from their chests uncaringly by making Defence cuts and removing
regional and regimental association within communities
Does the fact that some Regts have lost hundreds in the line of duty during the great wars ,Tabb'd miles to get over mountains for a fight with the
Argies,fought and died in far off lands laid down their lives for this country ,still to this day lads and lasses die in the face of fierce fighting
in recent conflict ,does your heart even skip a beat,does your conscience even register what you've done to the families ,troops who's association
with these Battalions you're. mercilessly culling is so close and intrinsically tied into the fabric of their lives ...?
You disgust me I feel repulsed when I hear your voice and angry when I see your patronising face with that smug grin I want to wipe clean off your
grid.I'm gonna march on London thats for sure.
God Bless and Lest we forget Ladies and Gents.
