Syria air strike protest – ex-soldiers throw their medals away


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.

    Must be a first. Never heard of soldiers doing that in such numbers. If Cameroony thinks he is going to send our soldier boys into Syria then I hope more disaffection is shown.

    And don’t forget the recent protest by Royal Marines in support of one of their sergeants charged with murder.

    All this low morale combined with the savage cuts in military and police spending could well be a greater threat than any from terrorism.
