Fighting The French And Horse Guards



That is what Wellington is reputed to have said on his principal enemies in the Penisular War.

When more dead servicemen are flown back to the United Kingdom, and the wounded and disabled are brought back sotto voce in case any body sees them. The MOD is having a legal challenge to the levels of compensation paid to disabled servicemen.

You can loll around drinking lager all day, and get 'me rights' , but get wounded on behalf of the country, and Whitehall sets the lawyers onto you


My other favourite quote is Wellington on being Prime Minister

An extraordinary affair. I gave them their orders and they wanted to stay and discuss them.

My favourite saying by Wellington went along, something like this...

"We have always been,
we are,
and, I hope, we always will be...
detested by the French."

Not even loll about drinking lager.....murder an old lady, or rape a 3-year-old, then get let out of prison early because they don't have enough room for you. Then you will get paid compensation for the free food and lodgings you're missing out on, not to mention the gym, Sky TV etc.

In fact, as long as you're not indigenous, decent, hard working, and honest....you'll get paid by this fuckwit government.

I know many here don't have much time for the Torygraph, that aside I urge one and all to support this campaign against the egregious behaviour of the cunts sitting in Whitehall

Wellington wasnt exactly a fan of democracy either. In fact he believed that you peasant scum, which i presume is most of the peps reading this, should know your proper place and be thankful that the oligarchs ruling you are so benevolant. How socialistic of him.

The telegraph has over 600 comments on this just now. One from an ex-serviceman says "Ainsworth and Brown should go now and hang their heads in shame".

Sorry to disagree, ex-serviceman, but, IMO, Ainsworth and Brown should go now and hang their heads in the dirtiest shithouse in the dirtiest flat in Tower Hamlets.
