Army’s most senior female officer quits amid cuts anger - Telegraph There has been comment that cuts in troops haven't been matched by cuts in the Army's corporate structure. I'm not sure I totally buy the demoralisation/disillusioned motive (though I suspect it isn't completely insignificant), £100k Salary as part of a £200k package is bloody good in this day and age. I wonder if they saw a night of the long knives coming (perhaps when A2020 gets its 5th (or 6th?) reshow) and jumped early to beat the rush? Or perhaps were told that there was writing on the wall and jumping early would be appreciated.
