Bloke I know, who knows a bloke etc etc was at a closed meeting in Lahndon today, at which a Defence Minister* was telling the fraternal comrades all about the blood sweat and tears which all Departments can look forward to over the next few years.....morale boosting stuff. One of the points Our Min allegedly threw in was ' It's not all about money...the military needs to take a hard look at how it organises itself...why for instance , in Newcastle alone ,are there 9 separate Reserve units, including the RNR? ' Cue rather overloud stage whisper of 'B0ll0cks!' from the back of the hall. Over to you Geordie/Maccam Stabs? Sounds like rubbish to me - but who knows? Could Hizzoner be correct? I think we should be told..... * Well, ALL our Ministers come from oop Norf innit tho ?
