NOT CONTENT WITH SIMPLY BETRAYING BREXIT, RECENTLY RELEASED MEMOS HAVE REVEALED THAT THERESA MAY HAS ALSO STABBED OUR BRAVE ARMY VETERANS IN THE BACK.
MAY Personally blocked ministers from proposing a new law that could have protected Northern Ireland veterans from facing murder charges, the explosive memo reveals.
A private letter sent on the Prime Minister’s behalf ordered that a government consultation on addressing unsolved murders during the Troubles in Northern Ireland “should not contain” proposals for a statute of limitations on historic prosecutions of military personnel.
The official memo, drawn up by Mrs May’s assistant private secretary and seen by Politicalite, also warns that veterans should be offered “equal, rather than preferential, treatment” relative to other groups affected by the consultation, disgracefully giving the same treatment to our brave soldiers as given to TERRORISTS.
The memo also states that Mrs May wanted action to be taken “against any person who was operating outside of the parameters of the law” during the Troubles – an instruction likely to infuriate many Tory MPs and former soldiers who warn that veterans are being persecuted for actions they carried out on the orders of their superiors.
Last night, Johnny Mercer, the Tory MP who has helped lead the campaign for legal protections, described the letter as a “sucker punch” and said Mrs May’s instructions amounted to a “betrayal” of troops who served in Northern Ireland.
The document reveals for the first time that the Government’s failure to act on calls for a statute of limitations – effectively an amnesty for troops for offences more than a decade old – was a result of Mrs May’s personal instructions.
This latest vile betrayal is just one in a string of devious acts carried out by the hugely unpopular PM, who thankfully is set to be replaced in the impending Tory leadership race.
