You are so right, I get so mad and angry when I hear reporters and newcasters saying that footballers and sportsmen and women are heroes and these are the people who earn salaries far in excess of what they do and get celebrity status and all these awards for nothing whereas all our brave military personnel who put their lives on the line every day and face death every day and continue to do so day after day get nothing, get no true reward or their sacrifices.

You are so right, I get so mad and angry when I hear reporters and newcasters saying that footballers and sportsmen and women are heroes and these are the people who earn salaries far in excess of what they do and get celebrity status and all these awards for nothing whereas all our brave military personnel who put their lives on the line every day and face death every day and continue to do so day after day get nothing, get no true reward or their sacrifices. What has happened to the Victoria Cross, it is supposed to be awarded to military personnel who put their lives in danger for their colleagues in time of war, how many of the dead and injured military personnel have died or been injured putting their colleagues lives before their own?

Lol, I hear this all the time about footballers, not taking away from the soldier's story but it REALLY is more than running around for arf hr lol, TRUST me, at that pace running for 90mins is Feckin knackerin lol, I certainly agree they are paid WAAAAAYYYYYYYYY too much tho, especially those earning millions have their money in accounts that are getting away with payin the 1% tax! Just out o interest what has this fine soldier done? Not bein rude, just don't know n I would like to ;)

Yes I certainly support this worthwhile cause BUT it does open a can of worms? Do we make such an award to every injured soldier? He/they are certainly brave men who have and will suffer much. I only suffer partial incapacity/health problems, compared to him, so know some of the difficulties, not least the ridiculous, insensitive and demeaning changes this government are making towards our disabled and indeed less fortunate families. Not only in that we are fighting for what we deserve but...

Yes I certainly support this worthwhile cause BUT it does open a can of worms? Do we make such an award to every injured soldier? He/they are certainly brave men who have and will suffer much. I only suffer partial incapacity/health problems, compared to him, so know some of the difficulties, not least the ridiculous, insensitive and demeaning changes this government are making towards our disabled and indeed less fortunate families. Not only in that we are fighting for what we deserve but our survival! I do hope that he is recieving care allowance and mobility award! There are several cases where this has been refused to his peers - ridiculous! A medal would be great but his care and welfare is far more important? This government is paying out billions to help countries abroad (some of whom have very questional values towords our society ) and similar to so many immigrants entering yet we have to fight to even get any assistance let alone a medal! 18 disabled people, at least, have now commited suicide due to this goverments draconian and unfair measures! Please see http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/suicide_and_attempted_suicide_du.
This issue of values and what such fine people should recieve plus what is right, fair and not demeaning in our society certainly needs looking at! Now we even see innocents penalised for having two bedrooms! e.g. one couple who's daughter just died of cancer! So you bigoted beurocrats enjoying your expense accounts and duck houses etc., sacked for theiving and receiving a 30 grand payout? Think of these poor guys who have truly given something for their country within their job! Yes there are those who try and abuse the welfare system - but many millions, unlike you, who genuinely need and deserve help! I thank you for inviting me to participate in this venture and hope you see this as my support?

Indeed a Hero, one of many who get little or no recognition for serving Queen and Country. Any wally can kick a ball about or ride a bike... Well done Sir Ben. Wake up you "politicians" and join the real world.

Sir Ben DESERVES THIS MEDAL MORE THAN THE SO CALLED HEROES IE FOOTBALLERS AND CELEBS, I AGREE WITH ANTHONY BARKING MAD MCLOUGHLIN. BEN HAD HIS LIFE ON THE LINE FOR US, WHAT DO THE FOOTBALLERS OR CELEBS DO? THEY WOULD CRAP THEMSELVES IF THEY DID THE JOB BEN DID. HOPE HE GETS THIS AWARD HE DESERVES IT.

Edward Charles Richmond

Something like this would gain more attention as a government e-petition. Causes have no real influence.
