    How the UK repays its loyalty to soldiers

    This tactic has been used before and will be again , soldiers put their lives on the line , yes they get paid , but also expect loyalty returned in the form of a pension after their exemplary service , this is how they are treat , if anyone is thinking of joining the UK forces , THINK AGAIN , dirty low life bastards .

    Army axes hero three days short of his pension: Sergeant will now have to wait until he's 60 before collecting package worth less than 90,000 | Mail Online

    He will now go into hired assassins. UK Gov members are to be shot with very generous discount.

    Wont just be him Doc , goes back a long way , the real cuts started in the 70s when new contracts were made and old contracts they asked individuals if they would like to change to the new style one , I was asked to change mine to which I replied , go away in short sharp jerky sexual movements Sir .

    My contract was if i never signed off i auto signed on , new ones they can sack you at any period , usually when your pension is due to kick in .

    Bloody disgrace, I tell you.....
    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Abusing Yellow is meant to be a labor of love, not something you sell to the highest bidder.
