Conservative ideology, privatize for corporate profit and little to no regulation, flows in many arena's as to it's Few who Served the many!!
In ignominious scenes that brought shame and dishonour on Britain's parliament, just a dozen Tories bothered turning up to discuss the treatment of our returning heroes.
WORK-SHY MPs who skipped a crucial debate about long-term care for wounded veterans to slope off on holiday have tonight been branded a "disgrace".
Mar 25, 2016 - In ignominious scenes that brought shame and dishonour on Britain's parliament, just a dozen Tories bothered turning up to discuss the treatment of our returning heroes.
The debate had been called by army veteran turned Tory MP Johnny Mercer, who delivered a heartfelt speech about the inadequate care many soldiers receive when they return from the battlefield.
He told the House that Tony Blair had "no plan" for veterans' care when he took Britain into war in Iraq and Afghanistan, leading to a "complete vacuum of provision" which was only filled by ordinary members of the public, who stepped up to found charities such as Help for Heroes.
Shamefully not a single Labour MP bothered turning up to hear the damning indictment of their party's record, or to offer any suggestion on how to right the wrongs of the two wars the party dragged our servicemen and women into.
Mr Mercer, who served as a captain in Afghanistan with 29 Commando Regiment of the Royal Artillery, told the Commons: "It is one of life’s deepest privileges to command men in war.
"Those of us who fought and bled with them will remain forever in the debt of these service charities for the fact that they carried on that duty on our behalf."
He called the debate to highlight the scandal of veteran care in Britain, which has seen successive Governments abandon returning soldiers to their fates.
Many wounded veterans are now entirely dependent on charities to help them readjust to society, which in turn rely on the generous British public for donations. read more>>>

Covers all conservative ideology, and here it covered Labour representatives as well. If anything is brought up to vote on, usually unfunded and a band-aid, if that, covering the many much bigger wounds, it can be conservative spoke as bi-partisan and cheered by the bases of as full flag waving 'supporting the troops', Poser, patriotism!
And like here in the states, no longer united:
The VA, any Governments Veterans Administration, is the people served Responsibility, not socialized anything but their Responsibility to Actually Sacrifice, as it's been since it was established but promises never upheld with congressional fixes coming mostly unfunded and peace-meal causing more problems, the way those served seem to really like it that way as they lay blame on the VA personal!!
DeJa-Vu: “With no shared sacrifices being asked of civilians after Sept. 11", Decades and War From, All Over Again!!
Especially for the Corporate and Wealthy Community, investors in Defense Industries, and for these, Afghanistan and Iraq, came Two Huge Tax Cuts, with more sweetheart deals to same from states and the fed!!
