Forces Charities Want Answers On Budget
Thursday, March 22, 2012
welfare organisations the Royal British Legion and the Army Familes
Federation have been giving their reaction to the budget outlined by the
Chancellor, George Osbourne.
The Royal British Legion has welcomed the Budget’s provision for a £100m increase in spending on Armed Forces housing, but says Ministers need to make clear how this affects a planned freeze on improvements to Services accommodation.
Legion spokesperson said, “Surveys consistently show that housing is a
key concern for Armed Forces families. We also know that it affects the
morale of our Armed Forces on active service.|
“The Legion recently told the Defence Select Committee that it is disappointed by the Government’s decision to freeze the Armed Forces accommodation upgrade programme for three years between 2013 and 2016.
“While we welcome the Budget’s announcement for further investment in Forces housing, we ask the Government to clarify whether ythe announcement means that the planned freeze will no longer go ahead.
"A Ministerial announcement that the improvements will begin at once would send a fantastic message of support to our brave Armed Forces and their families and provide further proof that the Armed Forces Covenant was being honoured.”
The Army Families Federation also want clarification on the £100 million investment in service housing. Their main concern is soldiers pay - a private is set to lose three thousand pounds over the next three years; non-commissioned officers £8,000.
Abu Qatada preaches hatred against we Infidel British and gets a bigger and better house from the filthy British pensioners . A Brit gets pissed and Tweets what he thinks is his truth and gets immediate imprisonment. Soldiers come home from Afghanistan and have to struggle to get decent family housing yet the Prince of Hatred is lauded by the weak minded legal professionals, politicians and the 'we bow to Europe scum'. Where are the purveyors of hatred on the wanted list of illegals and immoral? Still ordering their children to be 'honour killed'? Nowhere. As with this useless exercise into the raucous 'late night shopping' of the immigrant underclass by a select group of what, a carefully chosen woolly minded privileged whom completely missed their remit and the resultant toilet paper which is not worth chaffing your backside on. Read carefully because it blames everything on the poor British indigenous by not giving their very little to an invading horde, whom have contributed nothing to society.
These are the New Brits, like New Lieber, New Cuntservatives and New Pisstakers. Watch and listen to every political programme and it will be rammed down your throat that of the 5% immigration population, they are under-represented in the Law, politics and everywhere else. If so, why do programmes like The Big Questions have more, a great deal more, of its audience comprising of over 5% immigrant representation? Who are the real unrepresented people on these islands? Definitely not the Abu Qatada's.
