jubilee medal petition

This diamond jubilee medal seems to have caused a right stir.

Firstly i personally dont see the need for it, id rather money be spent on more worthwhile things such as training and kit. I dont need a medal to tell me i was at a jubilee. i fully appriecate the occasion should be celeberated but dont see the need to slap a gong on for it. Secondly this petition, i was sent it via facebook, having looked at it i realised (im not saying everyone on there) the majority of people i knew who had signed it hadnt actually done an operational tour. Now this would not be a problem if they were agreeing with it for the real "Veterans" however... in most case i seen that they themselves stating "we" should recieve it. This caused me to question "what is a veteran", personally id always assumed it was someone with some operational experience? Am i right? Or anyone who has served in one way or another. Thirdly my big problem is i dont understand why a veteran would want a attendence medal? One they are no longer serving, having spoken to a few friends who have signed this they all used the same argument "i did serve her majesty at one point" thus one could argue all serving soldiers are entitled to golden jubilee. Also i dont see the attraction of it myself, a medal because of what the queen has achieved, i like medals to be for something i personally achieved. Personally i distain the idea of this hanging alongside real medals.

I realise some people may say by doing this im getting more awareness to this cause, and that is valid. However im generally interested in widespread opinion.

Mince.

Is it the Diamond Jubilee this year? I thought it was just the Olympics, Bollocks and Euro 2012. What with that and the darts it's going to be hectic.

I thought it was Falklands 30

Is everyone who gets stitched for the Olympics going to get an Olympic medal?
Yep, but only Bronze ones. Silver if you do a good job, Gold if you personally bring down a suicide bomber (real or perceived).

I take it your not entitled to one then, hence your rant.

This is fast becoming walt stuff. If I get this right the petition is for everyone who has been in the forces at anytime between 1952 and now would get one. Never going to happen due to pure cost. It is in effect an attendance medal anyway and not what I would call a proper campaign medal.

Firstly i personally dont see the need for it, id rather money be spent on more worthwhile things such as TURKEY and BEEF I dont need a medal to tell me i was at CATERING COLLEGE. i fully appriecate the occasion should be CATERED but dont see the need to GO OVERBOARD on the food. Secondly this petition, i was sent it via faceTWAT, having looked at it i realised (I'VE GOT NO MATE'S on there EITHER) the majority of people i KNOW who HAVE signed it actually DONT LIKE ME AND THINK MY KNOB IS VERY LITTLE. Now this would not be a problem if they were agreeing TO PAY FOR ENLARGEMENT for MY real "FRIENDS " however... in most case i seen that they themselves stating "I" should recieve a PENIS PUMP, This caused me to question "AM I REALLY A MAN OR JUST A BIG GIRL CALLED MARY-JANE, personally i'd always assumed I was A MOANER WITH A LITTLE TUPPY AND some CATERING experience? Am i right? Or anyone who has COOKING EXPERIENCE DISAGREE, I AM MINCER BY NAME AND BY NATURE Thirdly my big problem is i dont THINK ENOUGH BEFORE I POST. Having spoken to a few friends, they all AGREE I AM AN ARSEHOLE. Thus YOU could argue all serving/EX soldiers are entitled to FREE TURKEY AND BEEF MINCE. , I like medals to be for something i personally achieved, SUCH AS ACTING LIKE THE GORMLESS ERECTION THAT I AM. OOH OOH, CHASE ME.

There, fixed it for you love.

Brilliant post.

All you needed to make it completely perfect was good grammar, style and an interesting subject. Oh, and it was far too long and packed with waffle.

But apart from that it was fine.

Sorry guys, there is no way the Government will change the criteria at such a late stage.
But if they do, can I have a Silver jubilee medal,to make the set.

I've got my Veteran Badge thingy, and if I manage to stay alive until May, I get another medal and VG loses out on the Dead Pool.

Ho Hum. Do you know how much them fuckers cost to court mount?

A f*cking fortune when you have a huge long bold and impresive rack such as mine, and I have a couple of medals too
