Right ok bit of a rant, now I have been a member of this site for a fair few years, and was in 'Green Kit' for a fair amount of time too. Now we have quite a few posters who are of a certain standing while still serving who manage to provide up to date information on the latest happenings with a fair bit of realism and a good amount of banter..... if only all those in the know (or who think they are!!) did it with the same style. To be honest I am starting get sick of the condecending party line bulls*t thats some on this forum pump out, ok I might be ten years gone but I had to listen to the same promises for 13 years which never materialised, about training and qualifications yada yada yada. Ok I might not be current but I have an opinion and I am going to share it, shame some of you condecending tw*ts don't do it while wearing green your troops might respect you a bit more.... Granted you might not get the O grade CR etc but whats more important the respect of the troops or sucking the CO/Brig off for your next rank. I got out because the Corps was infested with yes men and now it seems this forum is getting infiltrated by them, I don't need to point them out, you can tell by the way they post. If you want to inform people then do it, but don't start giving some of us grief when we post our feelings if they don't fit in the rose tinted world that you see, pound to a pinch of sh*t half of you wouldn't have the stones to do it to our faces!! This site is for all current, old and new to post their opinions, views, information and banter without some buttsnorkling t*sser telling them to get with the programme and be current or don't post anything etc etc. Rant over pin pulled and expecting incoming!!! In arduis fidelis PS. Happy Corps day to all on the 23rd, also please take time to remember a fallen brother LCpl 'Loz' Lawerence killed in an RTC near Sanski Most, Bosnia, 23rd June 1998. RIP mate.
