Used & discarded by the Tory Government: The estimated 13,000 homeless veterans on our streets.

1903

Today(15th) Parliament heard about the grim reality facing ex service personnel. After joining up to: “Serve & Protect the nation”, it is a grave offence against decency that this situation has been allowed at all. It is a deeper offence that it has been allowed to fester.

After following orders and serving the whims of the political class it is hard to deny that these veterans have been discarded without a second thought.

“Before Christmas I visited the community homeless project in Wakefield. Many of their homeless clients are armed service personel.

Veterans assistance estimate that there are an estimated 13,000 homeless veterans.”
