I live with my partner - suppose in old money she's my common law wife. I pay a mortgage and have food available every night. I'm being posted away and will have to live in the mess mon - thurs. Fair enough. But why should I pay full charges and the married feckers get away with free accommodation. Bollox - it boils my wee-wee. Since I don't have a career and I'm an awkward cnut, I thought I'd pitch my tent on the mess lawn during the week, and use the mess facilities. Her indoors can approach the press and see if they could use the story. Might even take it to a 'uman rights lawyer and see if I can cause some fuss. Military discriminates against single and 'partnered' servicemen. What do ya reckon - worth a punt?
