Remember that the next time you, or a family member are in the hospital and despite all the pressures NHS staff are under they still give you a service with a smile and do their best and some work crazy hours, surgeons doing bypasses, saving lives one after the other.

For the same reason The Police Treatment Centre does not focus on the Armed Forces, and The Arts Council does not focus on child abuse.
Registered charities tend to focus on a specific group of people, or issue. Without focus, the benefits to the group - in your example; 'everyone' - will be negligible.

If the Fire Service were to strike - and with your approval the Police striked in response to forced Fire Service duties - what available group would you instruct to control the raging fires, the riots and the unprecedented crime wave?

Since they could not refuse, if you were to assign the Armed Forces to handle the crisis, might it cause you to reassess the charity as one that was operating in earnest, rather than as a propaganda tool that seeks to persuade us to enlist on the basis that, in addition to a working wage, we might receive complimentary concert tickets?

Unlike the services mentioned, they are not allowed to strike on their pay freezes. However do fill the gaps when they do strike. Any small help wins for me.



We took over the fire strikes
we also filled millions of sandbags and helped flooded cities many many times - all for no extra pay

so any little thing helps make time at home better for the ones who serve now. Wish they'd had this when I was in the Army! all we got was 25% off burger king

If she worked her job in the private sector she's get better money, less hours, less pressure. The NHS don't even pay mileage properly. My wife has to invariably top up our car with fuel to make home visits to patients and her Trust sees to it so they never pay it back properly.So yes, little perks like NHS discounts help people like my wife who choose to earn less by working for the NHS, caring for the UK population.This while she nearly every day hears from her patients "ooh love, you're not bad for a darkie".


Your wife should be refusing to her employer to tend to anyone who gave/gives her a racial abuse comment, or any patient her NHS (cough) Trust refuse to fully reimburse her for, if you think it’s bad in public service try private where many people get taxed on refunds and are made to wait till the end of the tax year for reimbursement (that may mess up tax credits being cut the following year and overpaid next year then underpaid the following year for those with reliance on Tax Credits).

I dont agree public public service staff should get discounts exclusive to them - who are paid well above minimum wage, and I am ex public service staff (was surrounded by people who couldn’t apply basic common sense who made work stressful)
Spoke to Apple about emergency services discount and no discount on IPhone X and no discount on Airpods and no discount on Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular but £7 off of Apple Watch 3 non cellular. Lol.

Can tell from your spelling you’ve not stepped foot in a university...

They give students discounts, and not you, because they are a small section of the population who might not have access to the same funds right now but will be earning - on average - a lot higher than those not in further education. It’s a business move, not charity but you keep being peed off pal

The Weston Air Festival looks great, unlike our Bournemouth Air Festival. 10 years of the same old guff! Red Arrows and the Typhoon are the only crowd pullers - and there's no Typhoon this year, and the Reds are doing 3 out of the 4 days. I think this will be (or should be) one of the final years unless they improve it greatly!

I am one of these workers, but don't think I deserve any special discounts. I choose to do my full time job, and statistically, my part time job is more dangerous. Emergency service workers have always got discounts at many places just by showing their ID. Personally, I've never done it, as I feel embarise to. And most these discounts offered with this card is prob avail in some other way anyway-just by asking sometimes.

For all his brilliance as a uniquely skewed perspective writer of Third Reich history, Irving is a polemical British Neo-Imperialist fantacist, racist, anti-multiculturalist, misogynistic, homophobic, sexist and theistical eccentric.

Had he been born in a different age, I could well imagine his penning the most vitriolic parts of the OT (Hebrew Bible)...which is just about most of it.

Re Loiterer post 11 and 16 . That is a very clever summation of the whole of World War 2 , to get in two posts what usually takes books and books.

Re Sabresonic . You are not alone . I think you will find most peoples relatives who actually experienced a real war , afterwards did not want to talk about it. It is a shame the Politicians are not compelled to fight before they are allowed to vote on another war.

I grew up being taught we were the good guys . I never thought that this Country would go to war without the consent of the people . Yet B,liar took us into Afghanistan and Iraq over oil and against the consensus ?
Even the Falklands , after a Government blunder of cutbacks sending out the wrong signals , the Argentinians thought we no longer cared so they invaded. We send a task force and lots more people get killed or maimed for what ( btw Oil again ) ? The next thing you know we are playing football against Argentina!

The Politicians and the wealthy Toffs stay safe at home while the grunts who dont even agree with a war get killed or maimed. Nothing has changed the Bankers go bust and they get bailed out. No one bails out the coal or steel industry and the Toffs continue with clobber the poor for four years more.

Oh dear, you do need to learn some facts.Britain declared war on Germany … Oh dear, you do need to learn some facts.Britain declared war on Germany on the 3rd September 1939. Germany did not drop any bombs on Britain until early July 1940...10 months into the war. This was the period known as "the phoney war". When bombing did commence it was Bomber Command who escalated bombing to directly include civilians. Read about the bombing of Hamburg or Dresden. In both these raids the overwhelming number of fatalities were civiliansI made no reference to your dad as conscription was mandated in Britain and Germany. He, like thousands of other airmen, flew to protect the ignoble interests of a failing British Empire and the disingenuous values of democratic government and so-called freedom of speech.Given your pride that he took part in the war as a rear gunner makes your request for me to "keep your views to yourself" somewhat ironic...don'tcha think?Think yourself lucky you were born on the "right" side. You could have been born into a family on the "wrong" side.



Seriously, are you for real? I don't think I've been spouting any 'facts' which you seem to be full of...amongst other things. I make a comment about my Dad and his time in the RAF after someone posted a link to a book and you tell me I should go and read about the bombing of German towns and the accounts of civilians deaths. Unbelievable!

Although my Dad made it through the war unlike 50,000 fellow aircrew who didn't, he was a kind and gentle man that suffered from bad nerves and depression for the rest of his life. I didn't fully understand and appreciate why he was like that when I was young, why he had to have periods in hospital and undergo ECT therapy. He probably had what they would call post traumatic stress these days. So yeah, that's maybe why I don't want to listen to your particular views on the subject.
