If you love this land then don't vote for Labour scum:War hero 94 hands back medals.

So this is how the champagne socialist MP's treat OAP's in their socialist utopia, despite the fact that MP's claim back all their utility bills off of the taxpayers.
A 94-year-old war hero today pledged to hand back his medals after the Government refused to give him his winter fuel allowance.
Bob McGowan was told he could not claim the £300 subsidy because he moved into his flat just one day too late to qualify.
Despite his age and the six years he spent fighting for his country across Europe, Asia and Africa, the Pension Service said it could not show flexibility.
Mr McGowan, of Portsmouth, has been waging a battle of principle with Whitehall ever since he was turned down for the fuel support in 2007.
He wants an apology from Gordon Brown and says if it is not forthcoming he will post his five medals to 10 Downing Street.
Mr McGowan, who won the Burma Star, the Africa Star, the War Medal 1939 to 1945, the 1939-1945 Star and the Defence Medal following 2,133 days on active duty overseas, said: ‘I think it’s disgusting.
‘It seems I’ve got to bow down over one solitary day, when I did six years overseas.
‘You’d think they would make allowances but they keep saying external factors won’t be considered under any circumstances.
‘What hurts me is I that did all that time overseas and they ignored it - they think more of one solitary day.
‘I’ll hold on to my medals if Gordon Brown will apologise, of course.

If anyone wants to set up some site to help this chap out let me know, I will give it some free publicity and stick it a few quid to help him out myself(as well as having a whip around down the local for him). Hell if push comes to shove even if no else can be fucked I'l send a cheque to the Daily Mail to forward onto him.
New Labour, each and every one of them are vile and amoral evil scum.
(Maybe he should rather than doing his bit for Queen and country should have waged war against the west in some Jihad and after a few years in Club Gitmo our Foreign Sec. David Miliband would have laid on a plane for him to come to the UK.)

Fact is the public servants with whom he is allowed to deal will not have any power to change decissions already made.Hhis best chance is to go through the courts. I did, it works.

True, sad but true. Common sense has buggered off from the UK.
