Am a member of a few veteran type fv groups. Mainly linked to my old units and Corps.
In one group, Ex-Army or something like that, someone posted a video of a black chap gobbing off to a group of white blokes. He got his head bashed about. Nothing particularly edifying for either party in the video.
What hurt me was the comments. I'm not going to repeat as I don't want to be any way linked but......
I did report it and left the group.
It's sad and shameful that a bunch of Phil Mitchell lookeelikeees, and that was pretty much the demographic, are out there and spouting off in the name of 'veterans'.
Happy to share good and bad and this is utterly shameful.
Context before someone disappears into the kuiper belt........These are only my 'own' in that they are veterans. Nowt else links me to those utter morons. Let's just make that clear. Sorry Herbivore to ruin that one for you.

This is funny.
There has to be a boundary and, given time we could all have smart and clever ways of marking it. It's been done in a hurry due to the circumstances.
Why not just accept it and get on with life. No, the local news outlet wants to fill space and drives around making ripples when the Gov wants people to be sensible and relaxed.
|One for the growers.....Tomatillo....have you?|

Does anyone grow them?
I started last year and wow! They are wonderful. It's that little bit of authenticity in a salsa or Mexican food.
So easy to grow and you only need three plants for a supply all year round.
I made the mistake of not labelling my seed trays and have got around 10 all starting to bear fruit. I feel the neighbours will be getting some freebies.
I would recommend them. We don't have a greenhouse as our house is still being built, so can tell you they are great outside in the wind and rain.
Can't wait to get them into my greenhouse for next year.

I'm bored with the same old from the supermarkets and am looking to branch out.
We used to get a few kilos shipped over from Thailand, friend in situ, but they trebled their prices so that made it uneconomical.
I've looked at a few and even with a veterans discount, often 20%, it's still £6 per 250g.
Is that the going rate or am I missing something?
Peace and love.
|Elite players struggling is very similar to veterans|

When you look at both they are incredibly similar.
Both live in bubbles with much changed rules and behaviours from civvies.
When they are called upon to perform, bang they are there.
Constant training and pressure to deliver - for different reasons I know but so much it as stake when they have to be on it.
The careers are similar length
You can be finished in a split second - happened to me in Bosnia.
Spat out and left alone in a strange world with people who don't understand you and you sure as hell don't know what they are talking about!
Many veterans end up drunk, under a bridge, or at worse a statistic.
PFA, Gordon Taylor, you know the old man getting paid a sick amount, should do so much more.
Former footballers need a rehab centre like we've got in the military so they can be among kin. Help for Hero's has Tedworth House, an amazing facility where you can go for courses, rehab, love, and kinship.
Footballers and elite athletes need the same.

His recent piece stating we still have something to play for and could get into the play-offs highlights the reason I've been showing him the door for a long time.
He simply has no intellect on the game or life. Sorry but all he does is spout jingoistic bunkum designed to make you feel good until you realise there is nothing behind it.
He is the biggest bag of wind since an even bigger one.
At no point during his time at the club has he shown any kind of intellect. Nothing to tell me, the fan, he can think behind the soundbite.
He has to be let go at the end of his contract. He adds nothing, in fact he detracts more than he adds.
Fist pumps and cliches. Really? Vacuous at best.
|Relegation and promotion|
at 08:59 4 May 2020
Nothing I've seen yet comes close to making sense if they play more fixtures.
All I can see is the lawyers prepping argument as to why their client should not have been relegated or had promotion withheld.
I'd finish it now and let it be. Third place is promoted to save the playoffs.
