    Veteran Gus is starving himself & sleeping rough in Newport, Shropshire in protest at the closure of a mental health care facility for veterans suffering from combat PTSD. The Government lied about putting more money into the care veterans. Many who have been affected are now homeless. This is the reality of how we treat ex servicemen. Funnily enough the press are not interested.Well it is not as important as Megahn Markles’s tiara or wedding dress. Again arrangements were made to clear the poor and homeless off the streers in Windsor so that the rich do not see them.
