For some reason I was expecting a little bit more this year, what with fire-strikes, operation "Certain Death" and having to keep Mr Silverman in business. Hopefully the rent will go up and cancel it all out. It truly is sh1te not having a voice. Any teachers reading this......10%, who are you kidding, my chick is a teacher and she does less than me. plus she has more leave and doesn't have to buy her own chalkboard eraser. Anyone know of any recent attempt to form a Union within the Army? I've heard plenty of Military folklore, is there any truth in it? And for all the scanners at MI6, I'm not trying to form one, so put the battering rams away and carry on writing your books and selling your secrets to the Sunday Sport.
