I read an article about the millies recently but all it had was pictures upon pictures of celebrities and what they would be wearing/who they are screwing and then, as an after note, a picture of Ricky Fergusson at the end as almost an afternote. It made me wonder who the millies are actually staged for, celebrities to get photographed or the service people to be awarded. The celebrities & the sun will all make some dosh/pr connections out of this but where will the soldiers be in 30,40 years time when all the war is forgotten? Do they add value to, or overshadow presentation of medals by the Queen? I dont know enough about the awards back workings and the morale they create in receiving units, to personally draw a conclusion but it seems to me that the SUN is milking this today and tomorrow would be the first to print pictures of 'soldiers pissing on an iraqi' if it sold papers. But I am inherently distrusting of the SUN having worked freelance for them when I was studying to be journo so would like to hear opinions from both sides of the fence. What are peoples views on the 'millies' awards by the sun. Do they do more for the soldiers who the praise or just put money in the pockets of the sun newspaper and help them to fill pages?
