    This is very sad. God bless them, I bet the royals don't go without. Sell the queens bloody Corgis.

    WTF...A man who fought bravely for the country that the people who now are responsible for caring for him live in, has to sell the tangible evidence that proves he fought that fight just to be able to be provided care by the children and grandchildren of those he helped to protect and save. Yet I'm subjected to news reports over on this side of the pond about the luxurious life Kate Middleton lives. Seems the UK has a screwed up sense of propriety as well.
