Members calling on the Committee on the Grant of Honours, Decorations and Medals to reconsider its advice to HM the Queen on not allowing veterans to wear the Pingat Jasa Malaysia Medal.

I think Meg Munn could keep goal for England (or perhaps, wicket keeper)

Ms Munn

You are repeating FCO representatives statements long prior to yourself, please treat Mr Don Touhig and Veterans of this country with a little more respect than you are currently showing.

Parrots repeat sentences too! :-(

Jaw Jaw Jaw.

The longer Ms Munn meekly accepts and repeats the sleight of hand statements fed to her by her Civil Servants, the more she offends me and I suspect many others.

Is it not time that she acts as an ELECTED Member of the House and demands some full, proper and dare I say it truthful answers from those she allegedly manages?

This is just another way of saying that she and her department do not know yet they have had the impudence to inform veterans that correspondence and representations would not be answered because of the volume, so if they can say this, they must have some idea. Humbug!
