I back our wonderful Armed Forces and would rather my money went to a decent charity like Help For Heroes, not like you suggest to IRA sympathiser Unions like Unison and the PCS.
There were a couple of people at that march who were waving PCS, UNISON and NUT placards, but they did not have the blessing of their unions, who DO NOT supoport the IRA. There were EDL and BNP goons in the crowd waving union jacks. Does that mean that all English people support the EDL and BNP fascist scum?

I spent 18 years in the armed forces and now I'm the Chair of my UNISON branch. I'm proud of the work we do to protect our members and improve their pay and working conditions.

You might want to retract your "spend, spend borrow, borrow" comments in light of the fact that in 1997 the Labour party inherited a debt of 42% of GDP. In 2008, thestart of the banking crisis, the debt had reduced to 35% of GDP, a figure confirmed by the ONS.

Another myth Tories like to spread is that "Labour created the biggest deficit in the developed world by overspending". The actual figures show a different story and are confirmed by the IMF and other financial institutions which are independent of Murdoch's and other Tory-leaning newspapers.

What "struggling" have YOU had to do BTW?

Well I don't vote Tory and you obviously haven't done your economic homework, The National Debt was around £364 Billion when Labour took over. BEFORE the financial crisis Labour managed to INCREASE this to around £624 Billion, then you can throw another £200 Billion Labour threw on the fire, before the public booted them from office. Blair and Brown did NOTHING to tackle the debt, too busy I suppose like Mandelson recently said in letting in 4.5 Million people/immigrants for votes and ramming the divisive community ruining 'Multiculturalism' claptrap down the publics throat, that really worked out well didn't it. As for your 18 year Armed Forces Career why 18? Did you not fancy your full pension then, I smell possible WALT ALERT!!!

Here's a link to the official UK National Debt figures. I'll leave readers to make up their minds. As you will see, the worldwide financial crisis was the main reason for the inflated figures circa 2010 which you so gleefully quote. And of course, the broader point is that Labour could afford to let the UK national debt rise slightly after bringing it down massively after 1997. Not only that – our debt repayments were higher as a percentage during the Thatcher years than under Labour.

As for your rather childish snipe at my length of service. I took the voluntary redundancy offered by Thatcher in 1994 as the chances of further promotion were nil. The terms and conditions I obtained gave me more money than I would have ended up with if I'd completed my last four years. I DID get a full pension (18 years worth), and what's more I started collecting it from the day I left the mob in 1994 at the ripe age of 40 so I had 15 years worth of pension wonga in my pocket before I reached the magic age of 55.

Please try and remain civil. You do us all a disservice when you use such childish sniping.

Haven't got a clue Bert, but I expect it's a pejorative.

It's a shortened version of Walter Mitty, the guy who lived in a fantasy world claiming to have done things he hadn't. ;)
