BAFF and UKNDA

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by Balleh, Nov 11, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. So now we have another pressure group purporting to support members of HM Forces.

    UKNDA.

    Includes a group of military has-beens who have little credibility as they lacked the moral fibre to speak out when serving, let alone resigning, and who now have a new-found status of Patron, “Vice President” or Board Member - 39 of them for goodness sake.

    BAFF.

    An organisation whose 10 Point Plan shows it is hell bent on challenging the Chain of Command and comes from the barrack room lawyer/trade union end of the spectrum.

    Discuss.
     
  2. The BAFF thing is being discussed on armynet (by thousands of people honest :p ) The people bigging it up are a little disapointed that most soldiers have pinged it as a wannabe union.
     
  3. Good for the soldiers.

    They can't have read this thread then linky
     
  5. I am sure they have, and have decided that BAFF is indeed a “wannabe” union.

    Another afternoon on the cheap scotch Gav?
     
  7. Most soldiers have pinged you, Balleh, as a dick.
     
  8. Not alcohol induced, and in any event Scotch – can’t stand the stuff.

    But your comment clearly demonstrates that the first reaction by BAFF supporters is to try to close down the debate by rubbishing dissenters. This suggests they don’t really have a coherent argument.

    So, back to the main point:

    “So now we have another pressure group purporting to support members of HM Forces.

    UKNDA.

  9. Quite possibly, but they seem to agree with me.
     
  10. "Has -beens" are better than never beens !
     

  11. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Only in your own mind :wink:
     
  13. Like them or not the Uknda will get more air time than Baff will. This is not because Uknda is better than Baff it is purely down to the fact that the Uknda has well known talking heads that people and journo's already know and Baff does not seem, to me , to have that contact with the media.
     
  14. That could be true right up until the next load of senior officers take retirement and can't get a job. Then they will form another federation/union.
     
  15. You are really, really, really boring.

    Why have you got such a chip on your shoulder?

    Let people make their own minds up about whether they want to join these organisations. The more you bang on about this, the more people will just ignore you.

    Get a life,
