Excellent answer SJ. Maybe you should instruct your solictor to take the MOD to court, ref them breaking your contract, seeing as they stuck to it when you went AWOL. Try and claw back whatever you lost life wise.But I signed up for (and only intend doing) 22years. It's a legal contract. It must be because I went AWOL for a few days in my younger and foolish childhood and was jailed for it. I broke my contract and was punished. Rightly so.
But I did not sign up for 37 years! So can they change the terms of service to those approaching 22 years (2 and a half left)? Surely Not!
Did you vote Labour, soz NEW Labour last time? I'm sure some on this site will disagree, but would the Conservatives have done this. Anywhoooo, I don't care cos they get my vote on the next general election anyway. Up yours Bliarwitch. You've delievered nothing that I've noticed/made my life better. Waanker.You may note that this is the first time I have joined this site (and excellent it is too), but I have NEVER been quite as pi##ed off as I am this evening.
I have stayed in the army as long as I have for one reason and one alone, and that is to be able to collect my pension (or at leat a 1/3 of it) when I leave at 37. As a result, I have missed out on the opportunity to make the move into civi-street at an age when the transition would be slightly easier. How can this buch of idiots get away with this, if indeed the story is true?
We signed a contract and now we are being fu~~ed over by them. There must be a case for legal action here? Failing that, roll on the revolution - Eagle, I'm with you all the way on this one!
