‘Good progress’ made in tackling unacceptable behaviour in the military

Good progress has been made introducing new measures to clamp down on unacceptable behaviour in the military, an independent review released today has concluded.

Hypothetical Scenario:- A private soldier witnesses a SNCO bollocking a lower rank, not talking, shouting, nose to nose. personal unsavory attributes are highlighted, as is his parentage, country of origin, skin tone and scruffy appearance.

The witness has two options. Approach his own troop sergeant, possibly his troop officer, or ignore it, and accept that this is part and parcel of military life. what ever he does, once word filters down through the SNCO's mess, that he has grassed, his life will be made extremely uncomfortable, extra duties, shit jobs, fatigues, fire piquet, that is the nature of the beast, and has been for century's. Or he can turn a blind eye, and soldier on. There is no middle ground.

That might have been the case once.

Not so much any more.
 
All very good but we are still surrounded by ******* idiots that don't understand that you can't publish lies or falsehoods on Facebook and get away with it by simply saying "it didn't happen". People are still acting like Fill Yer Boots doesn't exist in the full knowledge that it does. Apart from the "don't be a dick" training they need to be taught not to faux pas on Facebook as the youngsters are better at it than we are.

will pissing in yer mum wardrobe still be allowed ? askin for a friend.
 
It's very much the case now. There is simply no way to report toxic leaders without career ending consequences.
I don't know if that's true, but it would be very difficult, especially if the CO was a "chosen one" and has a VSO mentor. I have seen attempts to complain formally fall flat on their face before, and the climate assessment is toothless.

Ah, the thin veneer of respectability and correctness.

Shit happens everywhere, you cause a senior problems and you will suffer. It happens in the army, it happens in corporate life............I've seen it in both, and my Mrs has to deal with it when it comes to light at the financial institution she works at. And, corporates are even sneakier than squaddies cos the know they will get roasted by HR if they get caught, and potentially fired. The Mrs went to the extent of having one of her juniors at a well known credit card in the UK set up security cameras to film the goings on at the annual summer and xmas parties/balls. The reason being was that there was always a spike in HR investigations after both events.

It gets dodgy though when the top HR director [female] for the bank gets shit faced and latches on to a very junior male HR assistant. She more or less dragged him to her room and raped him. She moved on.

Er, do you have her telephone and e-mail address? A picture would be nice but not essential. Asking for a friend of course.
