Waiting game.

I AM disgusted by the treatment of our ex-soldiers, who face a long wait for council housing.

This also goes for other hard-working members of society who have to wait while others jump the queue.


I FULLY support veterans being given some priority when they are returning to civilian life and need a roof over their head.

However, as an ex-serviceman of 22 years, I was encouraged to buy my own home. Indeed, I took up the forces' offer of an interest-free loan for a deposit for a house. I did not expect to leave the services and continue to be looked after.
