Drastic cuts for those Divisions in the UK travel, exercises, fuel it seems to be everything. We all want to belong to a thriving, up and coming organisation and yet the majority of our staff officers spend all their time trying to balance the books rather than developing military capability as we are trained to do. We read in the papers about politicians travelling the world, eg. Prescott in the Bahamas and other senior civil servants spending money as if it was water, whilst those in the Services struggle and scrimp to make ends meet. It reeks of double standards to me.
