War zone civil servants cash in

Not only do MoD office staff receive injury compensation awards many, many times greater than troops wounded in action,

Not only do MoD Whitehall offices get a £2 billion refurbishment whilst troops are forced to live in delapidated barracks

But we now hear that desk-bound civil servants working in Iraq and Afghanistan are earning bonuses worth more than double the wages of front-line troops. Office staff are being awarded extra allowances of up to £35,000 a year to work in the conflict zones, dwarfing the £2,300 bonus soldiers receive for a six-month tour of duty.

What the **** is going on!!!!!!!!! The Labour Government is having a laugh at the troops fighting and getting killed on their behalf!
