Yesterday I wrote about the decision by the MOD to try and claw back some of the compensation awarded to Cpl Duncan and Mne McWilliams.

Now Defence Secretary Bob Ainsworth has come running home from holiday to deal with the issue and as a result of this case is bringing forward their review of the compensation procedure for our troops. He said;

“As Defence Secretary I cannot allow the situation to continue that leaves the public in any doubt over my or the Government’s commitment to our servicemen and women.”

Really! Do you think so? Have you only just figured this out? I mean well done for cutting your holiday short and everything but what did you really think was going to happen when the MoD tried to take money back off someone THAT WAS SHOT?

It’s a wonder who is in charge of these decisions, did no one turn around and say “Here, do you think the public might be a little bit pissed off if we try and take compensation money off these soldiers?”
