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. The article goes on and on about what they are going to get rid of! but you can leave a response!

  2. This does not mean that BFPO will be closed. It means (and in fact your cut & paste above actually says) 'will cease to hold agency status'.

    There used to be the 'Defence Dental Agency' (tri-service org) and it lost it's agency status a few years ago. It is now known as the Defence Dental Service and for troops on the ground it has been impossible to spot the difference.
     
  3. If it means getting rid of self licking lollipop agencies and reduces bureaucracy, it has to be a good thing. I don't think they are doing it for that reason though.


    What the Armed Forces do need, is less snivel servants creaming the budget.

    And if you had seen the Departmental Review published yesterday you may have reason to feel that that happy day is closer than you may have thought :D

  6. Of course! what we all need, replace snivel servants with contractors! Pay them five times the wages to deliver an over priced solution, that is crap, won't (not meant to) work and is about as cost effective as Emelda Marko's shoe consultant!
     
  7. Theres obviously some money to be saved somewhere and a catch.New Labour don't announce anything to do with defence without a catch somewhere!!
