Former British soldiers threw their medals on the ground outside 10 Downing Street yesterday (December 8) in protest at the Conservative Government’s decision to extend airstrikes against Daesh/IS to Syria.
That’s a pretty strong gesture of protest.
It’s wasted on the Conservative Government, of course. They’re in Syria on the flimsiest possible pretext so they’re there to make money – and recent Tory treatment of the services leaves no doubt about the contempt in which they hold veterans.
