From this mornings Telegraph Link Seem there is some outrage that there or two servicemen for each civil servant. Now casting my mind back a few years the Gobment had a policy of making 'None Operational' posts civilian as it was 'cost effective' ie an E1 Civilian Clerk gets paid around half of what an AGC one does. A civi Driver costs less than an RLC one. The list can go on and on. Seems the plan will be to cut 10,000 posts and replace them with what? Contractors? Because sure is eggs they won't increase the size of the Armed Forces to cover the jobs cut.
