WTF is going on with MOD Civil Servants? When British Forces were something to be reckoned with, Civil Servants were clerks, drivers and, in senior terms, recorders of meeting minutes. They knew their place - to support the Armed Forces. Nowadays they regard themselves as part of British Forces, obviously without the operational committments and responsibilities. We have this woman Ursula Brennan (PUS (Y)) ranting on like some Muslim Cleric about cuts and diversity in "the department" as they call it. Then we have her sidekick Jon Day, who, incidentally was responsible for axing all your allowances, visiting MOD sites like some member of the Royal Family. Then there are the endless seminars and briefings held in London and elsewhere by these non-entities. Has anyone else noticed the proliferation of these taxpayer-funded jollyburghers?
