Interesting court martial on the horizon, General in the dock.

All getting to sound very like the Stasi. How long will it be before we adopt the old communist system of having three soldiers in a fire trench so that one of them can inform on the other two. Is the Equality and Diversity Officer the new name for the Political Commisar? The CO won't be able to make any decisions on personnel matters without consulting him/her/it.

People tell me that we have had a Conservative Government for the last 12 years.
Well for 5 years Cameron was saddled with Clegg (a european army is a dangerous fantasy) and the scum dems (spits loudly) until 2015, Cameron was elected with a small majority of 10 and Cameron ran after losing the Referendum leaving May (shudders at her stupidity) and a remainer Parliament using Parliament time to derail BREXIT. May was elected (2015) and screwed up the election and got into bed with Arlene and the DUP. She fell in 2019 and Johnson was elected leader and by default PM, sacked 16? remainers who voted against the whip. Elected in December 2019 with an 80 seat majority, triggered BREXIT and then three months later, Covid hit the UK. So the government has had a lot on its hands. Too many MPs who have never really done an honest days work in their lives, and civil servants infected by Common Purpose left wing training and those who have done PPE but not life experience.

Look to senior officers of all three armed services, and their leadership has been lacking in many fields of their endeavours.

Too many very senior officers have forgotten that we exist to deliver extreme violence and are not just an extension of Islington council.

Those officers never did a stint as ROO/BOO when the lesbians kicked off in the Gutersloh bop.

Although senior officers are just chasing promotion and the "in thing" is to champion diversity.
 
Extreme violence doesn't look good in the papers or get you votes.
Unless another country is trying to impose extreme violence on these green and pleasant lands then suddenly the home grown implementers of extreme violence are flavour of the month. Ever was and ever shall be.

That certainly could be a rough duty Stacker. You knew you were in for an interesting night if the bouncers couldn't handle the situation and the monkeys were called.

Fixed.

The monkeys used to avoid going in. Always busy elsewhere.

The bouncers (who were squaddies) were usually egging on the lesbos to keep fighting.

My bold - and look what happens when they have 'second careers'?

Also, please define 'honest work' without being a member of a Bolshevik lynch mob checking the roughness of palms.
 
I need to advance my CS 'second career'. How do I join this 'Common Purpose' lot?
I think you will find that you are invited, if you have had no invitation then you are unlikely to be considered suitable material to become a foot soldier for Common Purpose.
You are just going to have to suck it up and have no second CS career, no PUS for you.

Funny seeing otherwise intelligent people like Lt Gen Swift at D&I conferences posturing about white privilege, FFS your core recruitment pool is poor lads from northern sink estates.
 
That chap (Swift)'s responsibilities are, apparently:
  • setting the defences wide Whole Force vision and strategy
  • ensuring a commitment to inclusion and diversity across the defence workforce
  • driving simplification and harmonisation of people policies and procedures
  • identifying and applying best practice from elsewhere in the private and public sector to improve the leadership and management of people
  • ensuring the Whole Force dimension is taken into account in major our change programmes
  • supporting ministers’ accountability to Parliament and the public for people issues
Count the buzzwords; apply them to a nation's army. Discover disillusionment, despair and hopelessness.

If that really is in a 3 or 4 star general job description then he must be thinking that he has wasted a 30-35 year career to finish up like this.

Too many have gone from university doing PPE into either local authority, teaching, law or as SPADs in political parties. They live in an echo chamber of self reinforcing views and attitudes.
