Why on earth they don't bring in a separate VAT which goes on huge payouts for bankers etc: defence tax which covers all the British forces and Veterans? Don't get peace without defence. Think of British men and women currently in Afghanistan and how my own ancestor fought their with Berkshire Regiment. Bring the troops home if the Afghanistan forces can't defeat the Taliban themselves sooner. Also deepest heartfelt for all the British troops in the Falklands at moment also thinking of you folks.
