How long has the Ressetlement budget been Â£580? For 22 years service this is pants. School leavers are enticed to study at college with a Â£30 a week tax free state handout which over a 30 week term adds up to Â£900. So why the fcuk do we only get Â£580 for 22 years service? I know that when your times up that the army couldn't give a monkeys for you anymore, but surely this needs a serious review..
