Kent MEP asks questions about RAF soldier’s treatment at Margate hospital

Janice Atkinson, MEP for Kent, will be asking the chief executive of the Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital in Margate, why they moved an injured RAF serviceman to a side room because his uniform may offend some people.

She said, “I am outraged that an injured serviceman in my constituency was asked to move to a side room because his uniform may upset people.

“The first job of government is to protect its citizens, this man was doing his job. He has served this country to protect us, whether you believe our recent armed conflicts were right or wrong.

“If anyone is upset because of this man’s proud service, their loyalty to Queen and country should be questioned and perhaps they should be asked if they would like to leave our country.”
