Can anyone confirm tangible evidence of "The Debt of Gratitude" owed by Government to our brave Service bods ----- Cos i aint seen any!!
I think that this line used so much by Government these days is a myth --- to dupe the public!!
What do you think?
A myth to be sure, but there is no need to take it personally.
Pretty much everything and everyone is regarded in the same hard-eyed cynical manner as mere
tokens to be traded and exploited in the pursuit and retention of power.
Cue Alan Johnson, as a mere MP he pleaded for an asylum seeker to be allowed to stay
here because, as the scars on the man's body showed, he had been tortured as a
dissident back home and faced more of the same upon his return.
Now, as Home Secretary, he has chucked the poor fecker out on his ear so as not to seem weak on immigration.
It is a debt still owed and gained at a terrible cost to many more than seen.We must not allow the Government of whatever side to forget both it's reality and responsibilities.It is tempting when faced with so much cynicism and 'spin' to want to just say F*** it,but they OWE this to people who have had to pay the price for their policies and positions of power.Every time I read another K.I.A. I am convinced we owe it to our own to make sure they are never allowed to wriggle out of their part of this awesome debt.Our wounded and dead cannot,why should they?
The government are just grateful that some other lower class person is doing all there dirty work,they woudnt know real gratitude if it hit them on the head. sympathy and fake compassion are only shown publicly but them after a mass public outcry and the pressure is on. real gratitude would be for them to push the troops in all there endevours 100% after all they are the twxxts that are constantly sending them here there and everywhere.
This so-called government has accrued so much debt that I'll wager the 'Debt of Gratitude' does not even register a flicker on their screen of conscience. Sorry, - New Labour - they don't do 'conscience'.
