I demand veteran hotels to house our 7,000 brave military heroes, says Patrick Christys
Why do we treat people from other countries better than we treat people who fought for this country?
Yesterday we did a big exclusive on a hotel for asylum seekers in Essex and it got me thinking.
So I’m calling hotels for veterans. There are approximately 7,000 homeless military veterans. Many of them suffer from PTSD and other mental health issues after witnessing the horrors of war.
Many have physical injuries.
Isn’t it strange that we can have thousands of people who we’ve asked to do the most dangerous job in the world – for not that much money, by the way – who are homeless, who need genuine care…but we will be paying millions of pounds a day to house people, often from countries we have been at war with, in nice hotels where they can get medical care and three meals a day.
There are loads of veterans in this country who are now in such bad shape that they could never make the trip across Europe, they couldn’t even afford to pay a smuggler to bring them up. In a boat.
And yet, we continue to house these so-called asylum seekers in place of our war heroes.
And on top of that we have a state broadcaster, the British Broadcasting Corporation, which from where I’m sitting seems to hate Britain.
Not content with a general left-wing and pro-EU bias, it looks like the BBC is now acting like Jeremy Corbyn – always on the side of our enemies.
Last night a documentary aired that basically accused the SAS of war crimes in Afghanistan.
They used very spurious evidence and even included images from the Australian SAS instead of ours.
The documentary relied almost entirely on enemy testimony.
One could be forgiven for thinking that the BBC was more willing to side with the Taliban than our brave veterans.
But that said, what level of investigative journalism should we really expect from a company that allowed Britain’s worst pedophile to operate under their noses for decades and let Martin Bashir lie to Princess Diana?
