BBC News Page have covered the story about poor accommodation - so far, so good! They then go and ask serving military personnel to submitt their stories. Yet again they are encouraging servicemen and women to risk getting into trouble by not getting permission to speak/comment to the media. I accept this may be perceived as gagging soldiers -but those are the rules. Is it time servicemen had right to take these sort of issues direct to BAFF, MP or some other source of help. Chain of Command cannot do anything about it because financial hands are tied. I have posted a message saying to BBC that they would be better talking to BAFF, RBL and the like to get chapter and verse as well as grilling the Ministers responsible rather than encouraging people to break law.
