Evening all, This is my first of hopefully many posts on a forum which has been quite useful to me over the years. The question I have regards the pursuit of a full time career as a politician whilst holding a commissioned rank within the TA. The ever optimistic SaBRE say this is fine, but given my location in a somewhat sensitive political region (no prizes for guessing where), I was wondering whether it would be a suitable or prudent undertaking. The reason I have doubts about the feasibility of pursuing such a career whilst in TA service is that I recall my OTC days, when one of the OCdts was docked pay and given quite the bollocking for making non-military related statements on TV on behalf of another university society of which he was a member. Any relevant/semi-relevant/irrelevant responses welcome.
