Jobsworths win again: Give heroes their medals

SO some jobsworth sheltering under the umbrella of the Foreign Office has decided that the brave heroes of the wartime Arctic Convoys, doing their duty in extreme weather conditions – as well as the terrible conditions of conflict - do not deserve to be recognised?

They have decreed that these men do not deserve to be honoured with a medal, willingly proffered by a grateful country (albeit almost 70 years late).

Well I think it’s time we all blew away this umbrella of theirs. Let’s have the names and faces of those who think our war heroes don’t deserve recognition for their bravery right here in print.

I am thoroughly disgusted.
