You couldn't make it up ...

We know that the government despises the Armed Forces and begrudges every penny (of ours) they have to spend on people or kit, we know that recruitment is so difficult that large numbers of Commonwealth citizens are now in the British Army (mostly) - yet numbers are still falling.

And now look at this:

Where a member of our Armed Forces is medically discharged as a direct result of injury sustained during operations, the requirement for them to have completed four years service in order to qualify for settlement will normally be waived.

If any cases of service men or women being refused settlement are as a direct result of injury sustained outside operations, we will look at them on a case-by-case basis.

Remembering that, for the Home Office (as deportation after deportation to evil regimes has shown) 'on a case-by-case basis' means 'repeatedly denied at endless levels of bureaucracy so that you give up before you get to court where we might be forced to obey the law'.
