It's come from the Press Association - presumably, somebody on the CGS staff didn't think to embargo the press release until after the briefing had been done.

That or it really is a coup :)

Is this not also pointing to the news story of Military Hospitals are at overflowing point, so can take away some of that burden away.

It's difficult to know due the amount of spin put on just about any story in the media

This 'spin' is ok but what will be the physical ramifications of this. Its alright saying that you want to find the right solutions for people but who will this be aimed at? Surely, not the guys and girls injured on the current operations. Shouldn't the first people to be given the correct solution be the long term sick, lame and lazy? Or maybe that will be the actual policy? It would be a much easier way to thin the Army out.I await the DIN with baited breath.

Some of the long term sick were injured on operations though..... Far from clear cut this sort of thing.

Perhaps on discharge due to injuries caused on war service, soldiers should receive their pension as they would after 22? That was the original concept of being "pensioned off"....

why would we have to be paraded for this?

we all thought it would be something drastic.

why can't they just say 'read Soldier Magazine next month - it's all in there...'?

what a load of hype over nothing.

i'm going back on Egyptian PT.

thanks for feck all Mr CGS.

Sounds more like a way to re-label downgraded soldiers in a way that allows greater recruitment to replace those who aren't going to be deployable for a long period.
