    This was posted on a koi forum I visit and I thought that a few people here might agree with it and add their signatures too.

    They're risking life and limb keeping us safe the least we can do is look after them properly if they need us to.

    I can't believe the story I heard on the news the other day about an iraqi boy/teenager who has been awarded £2m after an accidental shooting. Now, I don't begrudge this person compensation but it seems very unfair.

    I heard about that, to say the least I was disgusted, in my opinion we owe the troops money, an apology should have been given but no money, its war all this will do is open the floodgates for schemers after money.

    Consider the petition signed.

    Cheers everyone and please keep siging up guys. I just think it's all about fair play. How can a prisoner sue the prison wardens for compensation because they weren't allowed to learn a new skill in prison yet people injured on our behalf get a pittance in comparison? It's just not right.

    Please spread the new or copy this onto other forums too to get more signatories.

    Couldn't agree more! Whatever someone's views on immigration (and I think it's generally a good thing) there's no way someone who fought for our country should be denied the right to live here and become a British subject. Even the Ancient Romans had got that right; being in the army was a route to being a citizen regardless of origin.
