The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

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

    Bloody cheese-eating surrender monkeys.
  2. Why is this the fault of the French ? If the MoD is stupid enough to train someone up then make him redundant we shouldn't be surprised if he then chooses to get a job somewhere else. And it does show that employment mobility in the EU goes both ways.
  3. Certainly does, if UK Ltd could offer me something I'd leap at it but as it is the Germans, Japanese and (oh the shame of it) French have offers I can not refuse. Although we are working on a co-operation with a certain (US owned) UK firm, so who knows maybe there is light at the end of the tunnel.

    Good luck to the guys who rubbed the noses of the bean-counters at the MOD in the brown stuff.

    Edited to add: yes I know Japan isn't in the EU.
  4. Exactly how long should workers be poached for? What sauce would go best, and is steamed worker better because it keeps the natural juices in?
