£330,000 for injured soldier This is perfect example of why the Armed Forces compensation scheme needs a major overhaul. I have sympathy for
Charles Bradlaugh who has hearing loss and tinnitus in his left ear. I myself suffer from the very same condition due to us putting cleaning rags in our lugs during basics training as in those days the wearing of ear plugs was never enforced. I had 12 months of this in Juniors and I would say this is where my problems come from. But when you put this award next to the MOD and their disgraceful decision they took to the High Court to reduce the amount of compensation paid to two seriously-injured soldiers, one of whom had been shot, whose combined payout was less than £75,000, it proves there is something very wrong with the system. When the Conservatives get in power they need to address this problem with the greatest urgency. I wish Mr Bradlaugh the best of luck and do not begrudge him his award, it’s the system that’s wrong.
New prison to house sex offenders When we get all the vermin safely tucked up in the 5 star luxury maybe we should call the RAF back to do one last bombing run on their old base using live ordnance, preferably white Phosphorus.

Air crews' requests for armour rejected This is typical of the MOD they don’t think the lives our brave crews are worth £100,000 per aircraft.
Briton facing death penalty in Iraq 'suffering from stress' If they want to the British Government can put pressure on the Iraqi Government and let Darren Hoare serve his sentence in the UK. It poses the question , how many other security contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan have mental health problems? I personally know of one soldier that was over there who had PTSD.
Gordon Brown says world must act after Burma 'sham' The Red Robot is far more concerned about pro-democracy activist Aung Sang Suu Kyi than any UK citizen facing the death penalty.
