Petition No 10 [url]http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/TAcuts/[/url]

Those of you hard of thinking. (Perhaps I should have spelled it out for the Corps. Will be available in pictures soon) The intent was that instead of wasting time bitching about the situation here and elsewhere, register your views on the petition and move on.

And that helps how?
Glad you agree how would a petition help?
Well, I could take it like a man, on the chin, and keep silent, and let them assume they can do what they want as none of us care.

Or I could register my protest.


Think I'll register my protest AND take it on the chin....

Look i'm not having a pop at you guys for the protest...thats not the case at all...The link to the petition is doing the rounds on at least another three threads...Now i can see due to further posts your intent.

Its just the amount of moaning/Whines about the whole issue...The Labour Gov at the moment will not take any notice of any petiton anyway.....Not as if they care about Armed forces in general is it?

And Ganymede if you read my Sig blog..No i'm not in a Corp.

We are now sandwiched between LDV and Analogue Radio

Save LDV - Save Jobs in UK and the Environment - 4578 signatories
Abandon the six-month halt to training in the Territorial Army - 4208 signatories
Halt the proposed Analog Radio Switch-Off - 4126 signatories

The sharp end need the cash, its that simple. A cut had to come somewhere, and if you think that people training for courses that are not in support of Ops is more important than the welfare of the people on the wrong end of flying bullets then you are sadly misled.
Training in support of Operations is still going ahead and if the course is Operationally important you will get paid!!!
I need a course so I qualify for my bounty this year seems to be the warcry at the moment.

Am I being maudlin, or is this actually a fair reflection of the standing of the TA in the eyes of the general public?

It could be worse we were below Save Didcot Railway Centre (GWS's home) at 3897 yesterday.

But the TA petition is growing by the hour if not the minute. We just need to tell people it exists. I think there is growing public outrage at this

Petition signed;

Perhaps if GB wants to save money, he should make the money grabbing scumbags in Westminster take a pay cut or donate their expenses!

Better still lets get rid of 600 of the 650 ish MP's - save a fortune.
