The Sun highlights Nick Clegg's stand against "scrooge" MOD

It is great to a see a "Sun exclusive" today accompanied by a large photograph of Nick Clegg, under the title, "Our Boys ripped off by the MOD":

SCROOGE MoD chiefs are making a fortune by charging forces’ charities for holding fundraising events on military land.

Warped ministry rules — exposed by The Sun today — mean do-gooders have to pay full commercial rents for their events.

...New Lib-Dem leader Nick Clegg last night vowed to champion the issue in Parliament.

He said: “We ask for the ultimate sacrifice from our servicemen and women yet the Government continues to treat them in this shabby and disrespectful way.”
