It is getting excessively common these days for civilians to impersonate Servicemen and Veterans and to wear medals and awards they are not entitled too.
The increasing numbers of these people (also known as Walt’s) are alarming and have caused much anguish amongst our Veterans over the years and as even caused a lot of them to boycott remembrance services all over the country. Resulting in great distress to many Veterans and their families.
Most recently publicised was the story of Mr David Stocks who wore a George’s Cross at the Chester service of remembrance and even the The Victoria Cross and George Cross Association said he is not one of the 19 living recipients. But he insists that he was awarded it. So when is this all going to stop?
Surely our Government can draw up a law to prevent this from happening. The US government have put in place a Stolen Valor Act, so why can’t ours do the same and make this growing problem a crime with severe penalties.Read more

Petition to Kaloji Narayana Rao University of Health Sciences (knruhs), Dental Council of India (DCI)
A shocking video has emerged of West Ham United defender Kurt Zouma attacking his pet cat at his £2million mansion while his brother films him.
Zouma, 27, is seen dropping the Bengal cat and boots it in mid air across the kitchen floor.
The French international then chases the animal around his dining room in front of a child as the cameraman laughs. Zouma also hurls a pair of designer shoes at the pet — which frantically tries to escape.
In a final clip, he is seen forcefully slapping the cat in the face — and out of his child’s arms.
The disturbing footage was filmed by Zouma’s brother Yoan and posted to Snapchat on Sunday afternoon — a day after the centre-back appeared for West Ham in the FA Cup.
The first clip was captioned “sa commence”, which translates into English as “it is starting”. It is replaced with a dozen laughing face emojis in later clips.
It is understood the £30million former Chelsea player was furious that the Bengal — an expensive breed of domesticated cat that looks like a small leopard — messed up his house.
Disgusted animal welfare charities slammed the Premier League ace — who could now face a criminal probe.

As it stands today babies born in hospital in Australia are admitted but not as patients and they are not counted in the number of patients in a midwife’s care, doubling the actual workload and reducing the amount of time that can be spent with each mother at such a vital time. The government makes this ruling based on the premise that newborns will be completely cared for by their mother. Even well babies born in hospitals though, will need specialised observations, investigations and often treatment that can only be provided by Registered Midwives or Registered Nurses. Often mums are unable to independently care for their well babies following, for example, Caesarean section birth.
Common clinical care for babies includes: 2 hours of continuous oxygen saturation monitoring post birth plus 15 minutely observations, blood glucose monitoring for babies of mothers with diabetes, IV antibiotics, neonatal medications, blood tests, phototherapy for jaundice, specialised observations for sepsis risk/meconium aspiration/drug withdrawal are all common in high risk hospital environments. And becoming more and more so. These tasks have been added to the workloads of Midwives over the years, and with the growing number of women with complicated pregnancies the workloads are becoming increasingly unmanageable.
Midwives are are expected to care for the same number of women as always, but the babies don’t count in their patient load. This needs to change now. These babies need to be recognised as patients in their own right and funded as such.
Midwives need time to provide care to babies without compromising their ability to provide care for women’s physical, psychological and emotional health as they adjust to motherhood and recover from the birth of their baby. We need to provide important breastfeeding support, newborn care education, safety education, discharge planning etc.
We want the government to change the way babies are classified in hospitals where they receive clinical care like any other human being. My letter to the health ministers explains in more detail what and why we need change to happen now. I am hoping for a response to that and to this petition ASAP. Maybe by the time International day of the Midwife arrives in May we can get this through.
We need parents and parents-to-be to partner with us. Please add your voice to our cause and sign the petition. The change has to come from the federal health department, which is why this petition is directed to the Minister and Shadow Minister for Health.Read more
