How can this pinstriped, self-serving mob allow the 'temporary' wearing of an award?

Political expediency obviously has a much higher priority than justice for veterans, any day of your week.

Here in Australia, I have seen many a PJM being proudly worn by ANZACs at memorial ceremonies, yet I am not permitted to wear mine! British justice and fair play the envy of the world? Don't make me larf!

The Aussies have several stock phrases that would cover the pomposity and stupidity of this decision, (and your 'Sir Humphrey' responses), none of them complimentary.

You are supposed to be on our side.
