Commitment to more defence spending
Oct, 21, 2010

It was interesting to see some more token politics yesterday with the suggestion that the Conservatives are going to promote the donation of free tickets to various sporting and entertainments events.

Kite mark for new Service charities
Oct, 21, 2010

Apologies – it’s been a while since my last blog, but The BFF has been so busy planning shows and doing stuff there’s hardly been a moment. The main news has been the creation of yet more Armed Forces charities, and while I’m in favour of this I do think there needs to be some sort of kite mark of entry to avoid creating yet more organisations who are doing the same thing as others already. More often than not they are formed without doing any research into what’s already out there.

This foundation will be arms-length grant-giving charity for other Armed Forces charities, and therefore a unique source of funding for the community of those serving and ex-serving military personnel whom we all admire so much.
