Please god tell me this isn't true? "Can you all take time to read this and add your names please. I didn't know this but MPs get a medal for visiting a war zone.They don't have to do time in country like our service personnel and they don't have to wait bloody months afterwards to get presented with the thing. Medals are all the recognition we as soldiers get for spending long months in shitholes getting shot at.The most action and flak an MP sees is over their bloody expennses.As we saw with the Wootton Basset petition thousands of signatures in a short space of time did make the government act.They cannot ignore the voters .Especially now with elections looming. Please take the time to sign this petition. Where it asks for your name also add on the same line former military if you were .You will see what others have done. I think this adds just a little more bite to the petition.Once again get your granny and neighbours to sign it. Lets do our service personal another service for all the hard work they put in for this country. http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/notompmedals"
