I listened with interest to the radio programme this morning and there was a good cross section of participants. A couple of things niggled me slightly. The first was the narrative of a Minister, suggesting that they, the Government, do well by the Services. My response would be, that if that were the case we would not need, a voluntary organisation, such as the Royal British Legion to catch the slack. The Welfare reprensentative of the RBL was in the studio. The second was whilst listening to the wife of a Lt Col complaining about getting 7 weeks notice to move, (As part of a Corps I have had two weeks notice), and oh god, in the UK having to find a house and the Government would be paying for it. I personally have had to shelf my familly, with my parents for 3 months, (No payment there), and when I got a house it was not fit for a prisonner. This over priveleged individual had nothing to complain about, and Jeremy Vine in my view voiced politely, what I impolitely would of added had my phone been close to hand. The third thing that annoyed me was that in this day and age, some individuals who called the show used false names, clearly indicating, that wive's, who never joined the Army, are still scared to speak the open truth, worried about what Whitehall will bring on their husbands heads/careers. Its about time the Governement lived up to their part of the bargain, rather than trying to stop their inadequate performance, being dragged through the mud by threatening posts on orders or daily detail. If they believe what they are doing, or by default are not doing is going to create contraversy, its about time they sorted it out, and looked after people. Then there would be no reason for anyone to complain, or impose gagging orders.
