The Millies 2010 In Photos: David Cameron’s Gangrene Gang Show
THE Millies are the Sun’s awards do for military men and women who the media sees fit to put on the telly and have recognised by Ross Kemp, McFly, Brooklyn Beckham, Christine Bleakley, Matt Cardle and Helen Worth from Coronation Street. It’s more of a case of why not than why? If it helps the recipients, then whey not. But what does stick in the craw and make us want to gag are the words of David Cameroon.
You might puke or sneer – but the stiff-upper lip and gag reflex won’t allow it. He tells Sun readers:
TO me, the Millies is Britain’s single most important awards ceremony.
For one night the heroes who serve our country so brilliantly get their moment on the stage and in the spotlight. These aren’t people who look for praise.
It’s the Gangrene Gang Show. So. Good of Dave to shower them with praise. Better if the fighters got more pay, better equipment and a job after they’ve left the armed forces. But it’s not like the Prime Minister can do anything about that, is it?
So, here’s the round of applause they don’t look for, and a spot on the telly they can record and watch in their dotage (with French subtitles)…
