Every month probably, like all service pensioners, your service pension and your old age pension, sorry Benefit now, are added together as joint income, if more than your annual tax allowance, then taxed at source, the UK, where ever you live in the world.

The ultimate irony is that the prejudiced, homophobic attitudes displayed by some of the posters in this thread were the catalyst for the events that they abhor.

I may well have shared their views whilst serving, but luckily 20 years as a civilian have broadened my horizons and made me far more tolerant and accepting of others. The fact that I am a grumpy middle aged man, and not a grumpy old man, may also play a part in this of course.

I think you're confused as to who the 'outraged and offended' in this thread are, 742-xx.

Dontcha just love PPRuNe - gives some crusty old f*ckers an opportunity to tell us what they really think.

As for the Reds wasting taxpayers money, I recall they used to give a full private display to some horsey types in darkest Berkshire in the name of some obscure charity.

I dare say I'm blissfully unaware of their participation in many events.

Maybe try asking them?

We're all entitled to an opinion, but I have better things to do with my time than referee the views being raised here by 'both sides'. Neither is necessarily 'right' in this enlightened world.
