I 100% agree with you Jan. He seems to have lost his ability to appreciate what, IMHO, the British public in general think of him and his antics as PM and subsequent career. To me, this comes across as slimy and self-serving. This looks like blood money, and may well be, but our veterans deserve to be looked after by us and our government, and their friends/family - not by the person who caused the grief.
He makes my skin crawl, and this announcement (publicity) has reminded me,as a life long Labour voter, what a waste of an opportunity the last Labour government was.
