Post Council should be shot, please sign.
Please sign and pass on the following:

Please take the time to read the following article about one of our British servicemen who lost his legs in Afghanistan and who is now fighting quite a different war with his local council:-

This group is to support Royal Marine Joe Townsend with the ongoing process of him getting a special adapted bungalow out with his family in Pevensey.
After losing both legs to an anti-tank mine while serving with the 40 Commando based at Helmand Province in Afghanistan, Joe is trying to rebuild his life.
Joe is a strong and determined person who is proud to be in the Marines. He deserved to be a Marine and would always give 110% in anything he did. Despite losing both legs, Joe still remains upbeat and optimistic.
To help Joe become more independent and closer to his family, his grandad decided to build a specially adapted bungalow on his own land to help Joe.The plans for his bungalow, which would have had a treatment room, a bedroom for a carer and an en- suite bathroom, were drawn up for free by an architect who wanted to thank Joe for his sacrifice.
But the council disagreed. A spokesman for Wealden Council said: "The circumstances in this case are not considered sufficient to warrant an exception to the usual restraint policies." She also said Joe's bungalow would be "intrusive" and breach planning laws even though no neighbours objected.
With many people already supporting Joe, this group is to get more people on board with the idea and help Joe get the bungalow he deserves

I have placed the link to number 10 at the end of this message, please click that and it will take you to the new petition to get the decision overturned and wonder if you would all care to sign it. Its about time our government started to show a little respect for our servicemen and women instead of wasting money on methodone for the users, rent payments for the immigrants with half a dozen kids, wallpaper at 10 pounds a roll for the odd policitians office. Its about time the British public told them to get a grip of what is really happening out there and what is really important. Charities should not have to raise money towards the adequate care and rehabilitation of injured and maimed service personnel, the government should provide these services as a "right". This kind of action from a council, who incidentally works for us.....takes the Great out of Great Britain and we should stop burying our heads in the sand and let them know that enough is enough!

So thanks for your time and efforts, his facebook support group which was opened on 29th Jan with less than 500 supporters, now stands at an amazing 81,343 and is growing every minute. The media is picking up on it and we expect this story to make the national papers and news teams in the not too distant future.
