It is an interesting idea. Suppose, a 'newsmaker' sees this story:Silent_Scope said:The MoD may have let the sailors sell their stories as a way of propaganda against the Iranians, as if the Iranians treated the sailors badly then it will become publicy known just how bad it was for them.
Are you suggesting that they should get compensation from the MOD for their two week âordealâ? If so why. What exactly have they done other than perhaps show themselves and our Armed Forces in a very bad light. I couldnât see anything heroic or stressful in what was shown on the TV coverage!FNUSNU said:It's not like they can get compensation of the MoD, sure we all know the risks, but they have served their country so why should't they make some money for themselves? Nobody would bat an eyelid if this were about civvies. We shouldn't criticise their conduct, most of us should know what CAC is all about.
But, they're not civvies, are they?FNUSNU said:Nobody would bat an eyelid if this were about civvies. We shouldn't criticise their conduct, most of us should know what CAC is all about.
Got to agree with this. When the Forces start going down the mememe culture of civvies we are well and truly up sh1t creek as a nation.Cambrai-Kid said:But, they're not civvies, are they?FNUSNU said:Nobody would bat an eyelid if this were about civvies.

They're members of the armed forces, half of them are Royal Marines!!!
Our country is falling apart at the seams, society has lost it's moral compass and I fear that we may not be able to recover in time to save it.
God knows the last decade has damaged society, but, we know that we're really fucked when the same what's in it for me? culture begins to creep into Her Majesty's forces.
The forces are so important to this country, the chav on the street may have forgotten that, but, that doesn't make it any less true. It'll be a truly sad day when the last great and unblemished institution that this country has goes the same way as the others.
These are sailors and marines, not slebriteez, this entire affair makes me want to weep. Weep, then emmigrate.
