SOLDIERS denied PAYOUTS because MoD wants to keep the SCALE of causalities SECRET.

BETRAYAL OF WAR WOUNDED
And James Chapman
WOUNDED British soldiers are being denied vital assistance because the GOVERNMENT refuses to reveal a list of casualties it was claimed last night.
Insiders at charities offering help to injured servicemen say the
Ministry of Defence
will NOT pass on their contact details, citing data protection laws.
But opposition MPs and charity sources accuse officials of simply being determined to hide the TRUE numbers of CASUALTIES in Iraq and Afghanistan.
A British commander in Afghanistan has already warned that the Army there is sustaining higher casualties than official figures suggest.
The claims will reignite the row over the level of official information on British casualties.
Limited figures are published, giving the numbers of seriously injured and those flown home for treatment. BUT no figures exist for minor wounds and there is no break-down of the types of injuries suffered, or information on those suffering psychological damage.
Some swerving soldiers claim men who have their wounds patched up in the field are being ignored in published statistics.
One source close to the
Army Benevolent Fund
, the highly-respected veterans’ charity, claimed the MoD’s culture of secrecy ‘frankly disgraceful’
-and very frustrating.’
The insider told the Daily Mail ‘We want to get the message across to people that the
ARMY BENEVOLENT FUND
-is hear to help, but that’s difficult it we don’t know who they are.
‘For reasons best known to the Government, they won’t give us details of those injured or wounded who may need help.’
Although wounded soldiers were given information about the fund, he said , many were in no state to take it in properly
Another former Army officer told the Mail yesterday:
‘Somebody somewhere doesn’t want us to know how many British soldiers have been wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many are all spread out in hospitals across the country , or have been medically discharged.’
THE ARMY BENEVOLENT FUND
Gives out more than £4million each year in grants to those with disabilities or mental illness, veterans struggling with homelessness or unemployment, and elderly veterans or dependants.
It works closely with individual regimental associations and the
ROYAL BRITISH LEGION.
Tory security spokesman Patrick Mercer, an ex-infantry commanding officer, said:
‘This is another damaging blow to Army morale. If the MoD was with-holding information as part of an attempt to obscure the number of casualties, it would be a scandal and offensive to servicemen and women who have put their lives on the line for their Government and their Country.’
[No serviceman or women should ever be laying down their lives for a GOVERNMENT
or for that matter as in the case of
IRAQ and Afghanistan for
Her Majesty’s Opposition Party
who blindly supported an illegal war and permitted Tony Blair to please his buddy George.
WARS are fought to PROTECT
THE PEOPLE and THE COUNTRY
and NOT a
-who as we all know got us into the growing bloodbath in the first place.
We all know that GOVERNMENTS are capable of using war to distract from its failing political problems at home and withdraw rights and liberties to fit in with their plans for our inclusion in a monstrous corrupt unaccountable police state a
UNITED STATES OF EUROPE.
Liberal Democrat defence spokesman Nick Harvey said:
‘It is clear the MoD wants to play down the whole issue of injuries.,
Earlier this week it emerged that injured soldiers are being treated in mixed wards in the NHS hospitals because there are too many of them to be accommodated in MILITARY WARDS.
Publicly senior officials at the ABF were yesterday anxious to avoid criticing the MoD. While that acknowledged there had been ‘frustrations’, they claimed the situation is improving.
Paul Cummings, director of
GRANTS and WELFARE,
@ I would accept that the MoD system hasn’t been as good as it might be BUT with experience they’re getting better at advising people where they can go for help.’
SO FAR 40 British servicemen have been killed in Afghanistan and 118 in Iraq.
Latest figures for Afghanistan show that 125 people have been medically evacuated to the UK.
More than 7,000 UK personnel have been treated in military hospitals in Iraq, with almost 5,000 evacuated to the UK. An estimated 260 [?] have been injured in combat.
According to ,the MoD, privacy rules in the 1998 Data Protection Act mean details in each soldier’s medical file can’t be passed on to third parties without the express permission of the soldier concerned.
Officials could NOT explain why that should stop the MoD asking every wounded servicemen for permission to pass their contact details to charities.
A Ministry of Defence spokesman said:
‘We advise all injured personnel how they can access all Armed Forces charities including the
ARMY BENEVOLENT FUND
As such these individuals can if they wish, contact these organizations directly.’
This weekend the
ARMY BENEVOLENT FUND
-is raising money through a spectacular
MUSIC and LIGHT show called
‘Music on Fire!’

[The evidence of our brave soldiers being treated in mixed wards in NHS hospitals is a clear sign that there is an obvious vast increase in the wounded and injures in Iraq but even more so in Afghanistan. No one should in 2006 be in a mixed ward particularly our servicemen who should be in a Military Hospital with others who
have suffered -as only with their own can they come to terms with their injuries. If a serviceman is in a NHS hospital he should be in a private room until he can be moved back to an Army treatment centre. It is about time the MoD got their finger out and started to treat our wounded as the most precious responsibility they have to deal with apart from the need to give our soldiers the best vital protective kit and equipment that money can buy.]

If you vote Conservative, Labour, Lib-Dem, UKIP or the
BNP, you'll be voting for the EU dictatorship. All five party
leaderships are EU controlled. That's why your vote doesn't make a
difference - all these five parties have the same policies: the EU's
The 17 most senior politicians in the
Conservative, Lib Dem and Labour parties, including Ken Clarke, Francis
Maude, Cameron, William Hague, George Osborne, Nick Clegg, Brown, David
and Ed Milliband, Ed Balls, Peter Mandleson are Bilderbergers, the 140
strong band of ultra senior Freemasons who are bribed by the EU to build
the EU dictatorship.
Bilderberger, Freemason or Common Purpose graduate should ever be
allowed to hold public office.
UKIP and the BNP are honey traps to neutralise activists: UKIP is
riddled with Freemasons and Common Purpose like a cancer, and the BNP
controlled by the Edgar Griffin (father) and son Nick Freemasonry
family. The 350,000 freemasons and the 40,000 strong Common Purpose
Organisation are the (mostly unknowing) foot soldiers of the EU in
Britain. (Which makes the BNP the easiest party to clean up - get rid of
the Griffins, and put in a real anti-EU leadership.)

THE EDP HAS BEEN
CRITICAL OF THE MANAGEMENT AND LEADERSHIP OF THE
UKIP FOR SOME TIME NOW AS IS SHOWN IN A NUMBER OF
BULLETINS OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS WHERE WE HAVE
CRITICISED THEIR LACK LUSTRE PERFORMANCE AS THEY
FAILED TO MOTIVATE THEIR MEMBERSHIP TO A MORE
DETERMINED CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE CAMPAIGN WHICH WOULD
HAVE MADE THE GOVERNMENTS TREMBLE BUT THEY HAD NO
WORRY BECAUSE THEY HAD THEIR OWN PERSONS IN CHARGE
AT THE TOP OF THE ORGANISATION. THIS FIGHTING

AGO TO COME UPON THAT SITE WHICH OPENED OUR MIND TO
THE ILLUMINATI. THOUGH WE HAVE SOME DETAILS OF THE
BILDERBERGERS ON OUR SITE A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO WE
FAILED TO DO MORE RESEARCH- WE ALL HAVE TO LEARN.
THE FAILURE OF UKIP WE HAVE SUSPECTED FOR MANY
YEARS THAT MANY AT THE TOP OF THEIR ORGANISATION
MIGHT BE UNDERCOVER MEMBERS OF THE ILLUMINATI. IT
IS A FAVOURITE TRICK OF THEIRS TO SUPPORT ANY PARTY

IT ALLOWS THEM TO PUT THEIR OWN PEOPLE IN TO CONTROL

VITAL FINANCIAL SUPPORT.
Our intention is
not to benefit from this disaster as since the 1999
European Election we have NOT! accepted a DONATION!
from ANYONE! and we closed membership also because
we did not wish to split the vote for UKIP but have
stated in the past that we would contest another
election if it was ever necessary to enter into the
affray again and with the reputation of UKIP under
scrutiny we will keep our options OPEN! As we
mentioned some time ago we have been almost two
decades on the campaign trail to free our once FREE
INDEPENDENT NATION STATE of ENGLAND from the SATANIC
EU and those who have for centuries have planned for
an EVIL ONE-WORLD CORPORATION/GOVERNMENT and
EXTERMINATE! at least 5 BILLION of the WORLD'S
POPULATION and therefore if we are right about those
mentioned above they are not only TRAITORS to their
COUNTRY but also a THREAT to WORLD PEACE. However,
of late, matters have NOT! been going well for the
ILLUMINATI as you will observe BELOW.
