Dear Chief Secretary to the Treasury,

Job discrimination.

An employer from Somerset was contacted by Forces Recruitment Services and asked if he would consider taking on ex-soldiers.

His written reply?
Personally, I'd rather recruit ex-drug dealers, convicts and even child molesters rather than consider anybody who has been in the pay of the British Government.

Anybody who has been in the pay of such a military force, and by their silence and complicity has condoned such illegal and immoral actions while accepting a monthly bloodstained pay-packet, certainly won't be considered for employment by us.

The reality for the families of their victims is that there will never be any justice, and there never will be any closure, for the loss of a son, a husband, a child, or a family member who has fallen victim to British Military personnel who are going beyond 'just doing their job'.

Please remove us from your email list.

Regards, Karl.
That's nice and welcoming, isn't it?

Come on Harriet, let's see if all your anti-discrimination laws have teeth.
