MOD Compensation

Another story in GT this month – MOD compensation. £3million has been paid out in compensation to service personnel sacked for being gay. The MoD has written to 60 former members of the Amred Forces, offering an average apyout of £50,000. Givena single cruise missle costs around £1 millino it isn’t quite as huge amount as it may at first seem (and I’m now on some Home Office/FBI/CIA list for Googling how much a crusie missle costs). Anyway, as a general message this is clearly a strong signal agaisnt discrimintion even in the army. Now then drill sergeants, be nice!
