Letter by British National Party Veterans’ Officer Pete Molloy, printed in The Northern Echo:
Not taking anything away from the excellent work done by both charities, Help For Heroes, who are paying for the unit to be built, and the Royal British Legion, who will pay for the running costs, but it should not be up to these two charities to provide the Prac facilities, but our government.
It is a national disgrace that we need charities to take care of our injured service personnel as it was not these two charities that sent our brave service personnel to die and be injured in foreign wars, but our past and present governments.
Both Labour and the Lib/Con coalition governments think more of increasing our foreign aid budgets and continuing our membership of the EU, which costs the British tax payer billions each year, than spending that money on their own people.
Under a British National Party Government, the Duchess of Kent’s Military Hospital in Catterick Garrison, which was shamelessly closed in 1999, would become fully operational again.
Pete Molloy, British National Party

Charities shouldn’t have to be the ones who pay for military facilities
