What a bunch of bloody misery guts we have on here. Quelle surprise.

The government wants to give people who have devoted a fair portion of their life to public service a visible token of their appreciation and all some folks can do is whine about it.

We all know it's not a medal for being a hero and for some of us it might be all we have to show for a few years in the mob.

From what was discussed on this forum a few months back it'll be a long service medal without the good conduct portion being associated with it.

Regardless of that this should be embraced as a good news story. Until someone can categorically prove to me that squaddies are going without body armour or the VSOs have had to resort to Tesco value sausages for their lunch.

Lighten up, for the love of God.
