I watched this on good morning Britain and was out raged. This poor guy fought for our country and this is how OUR government treat war heroes.

Not much more I can say than what you have already said.

Hopefully this will create awareness, especially on the internet and social media that people can group together and get something done.

Sadly it's not the first time the gov has turned their back on ex-servicemen, just look at how many have come home from the middle east with PTSD and been discharged without so much as a thank you, leaving them severely psychologically damaged and without any support, but that's the government for you, use, abuse and put up wet......

Foreign missions (embassies, consulates etc.) are exempt from council tax and other taxes claiming that they don't use our services, despite many having a police officer permanently posted on their doorstep.  Perhaps Iran would like to contribute towards this man's housing needs.

Re: No Words :(

This sort of thing is happening every single day to hundreds, possibly thousands, of people in the country.

This guy is bloody lucky, he got a voice because of his military status, but think about all the people sleeping rough across the UK and suffering in silence because the local councils just don't deal with these issues properly.
