Lots of very angry people (myself included) are posting emotional, angry, frustrated and bitter posts regarding the injustice towards ex service military personnel who served protecting British citizens within our own shores.

1. Many are organising huge marches .
2. Many have written to their MPís.
3. Many are returning their medals.
4. Many have signed online petitions.

BUT.

1a. Marches will be hijacked by glory seekers and will only benefit public transport and hotels. Politicians ignore them while the public pays to police them. Plus the public will resent the disruption a mass march could cause, and the public do not deserve to be disrupted.

2a. MPs are controlled by leaders, whips and civil servants who have their own agendas and briefs, their electorate means nothing to them, as has been demonstrated time after time recently.

3a. Returned medals are put into a cupboard and ignored - I suggest that those awarded them, along with your veterans badge, wear them every day, all day, as a quiet demonstration of solidarity. That will be a far more visual and powerful demonstration. If a relative has medals but cannot wear them, then wear them on the right side of your chest on their behalf. To see thousands and thousands of people going around their daily lives with a chest full of medals will have a huge and constant impact in the most powerful yet quiet way.

4a. Petitions will be debated once the signature count reaches the required level, but again they will be ignored as they are only given lip service by Parliament.

HOWEVER.

The very BEST suggestion I have read so far is that not one single military veteran attend the Ceremony of Remembrance at The Cenotaph in Westminster this year. Instead every ex member of the military pay their respects to the veterans that have fallen before us at their local Remembrance Ceremony and memorial.

If this goes ahead it will send a quiet, yet the most powerful message around the planet that the British Sailor, Soldier and Airman will not be ignored, underestimated or cast aside.

It will shout out and go down in history as the biggest and most powerful message to those posturing pandering leaders, who wallow in glory of the death of others, showboating to the media. It will honour those that gave their all for our country to be free of any dictatorship, to live as British citizens, observing our culture and traditions, with respect to those that respect us.

Now ask yourselves - how many politicians on the government front benches are ex military..?
That tells you EVERYTHING about the state of British politics, the British government, and our country.
