Successive governments have sent our brave troops into ill conceived wars. The number of deaths has been horrendous. The number of veterans injured, physically and mentally, is huge.
Many struggle to deal with what they have witnessed and the actions they have taken on our behalf. They need support and a lot of it.
They do not need to be made redundant. As a country we need strong and credible armed forces. They need to be funded correctly and be of sufficient size or we put our countries security at risk.
We are spending a fortune on overseas aid, much of which ends up in dubious hands. This is no longer acceptable. This money should be diverted to our armed forces.
