The government bowed last night to the outcry over its 'insulting' compensation plans for a young paratrooper horrifically injured in Afghanistan.

The Ministry of Defence has signalled for the first time that it will review the case of 23-year-old Lance Bombardier Ben Parkinson, whose injuries have left him disabled for life.

Could it be we have now got them on the run or am I being overly optimistic?
Its a shame that public opinion (voters) had to prevail and not common sense.

The difference in the maximum £500k for civilian injuries and the £285k for military further displays military personel being treated as 3rd rate citizens.
