Anti-war soldier Joe Glenton in medal return protest

#3
He's one of the guest speakers in Hyde Park prior to the Stop the War coalition rally tomorrow.

I'm hoping to get some decent shots of him looking like an arse! :-D

That's right up there with Siegfried Sassoon chucking his MC in the Thames.

Can Glenton write poetry? Suspect he's not a foxhunting man...
 
#5
Sassoon pretty much earnt the right to do whatever he wanted with his though.

There's a bit of a difference between an MC and a lapel badge gizzit!

Speaking before giving back his medal, Mr Glenton said: "I've been in self-imposed exile and prison for raising my views."

Fixed that for him.

Don't you have to apply to get the veterans badge? Its not issued when you leave is it?

£20 to Hols4Heroes if you get a photo of you punching him in the face.

Just a thought.........

If the yellow bellied cock known as Glenton is so upset about the war, why is he not handling back his first AFG Campaign medal as well as the vets badge? :



Security Bod: "It's a note from Dave mate. It says 'Go ram it up your arse you turd'".

He calls it a "symbolic" gesture.
Was it the same symbolic gesture which prompted him to accept the Queens shilling in the first place?
 
#13
I get the feeling he is hoping to be the next unknown on 'I'm a celebrity.'
Outside of his own troop who knows, and whocares?

I'm gonna throw my ISAF chocolate gong at his stupid ******* alien head, it's a symbolic gesture.

Got no problems with the protest itself though, I just don't like the grandstanding ****, he's just some twat that went AWOL and impersonated an anti-war protester to beat the wrap.

Afghanistan is a waste of time if you're not going to do it properly, you either go in and sort it or you go in half cocked with your hands tied and let the conflict drag on.

If these blokes feel so strongly though they should hand in their OSM, if they have them.

Just been on BBC Looks North. Just a working-class lad needed a job apparently. Obviously nobody told him about war and fighting and all that nonsense. Gutless ****!

Being a civvie (albeit only till Monday) I try to refrain from commenting on those who are serving, or have done so, on arrse.

But, I cannot abide his grandstanding. As the poster above said...if he felt that strongly, why did he not jack it in as soon as his first tour was over?

Methinks he over played his "objections" to the war to get him an easy ticket out, now he's having to keep up the act to save face.
