Should the TA be changed

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Charlieharley, Oct 19, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. With the current funding problems regarding the TA, should the term Territorial Army be removed and changed to Reserve, thus bringing it inline with the Royal Air Force Reserve & Royal Navy Reserve. Discuss
     
  2. Why not just call it the 6 month a year army.
     
  3. Re-branding costs money we don't have.

    I also believe reserves have different TCoS? Terms which few/some/many/most might not want to sign up for?
     
  4. Just bin the lot of them. They can become firefighters, or posties if they wish?
     
  5. Ah, hows things Jack?

    Why worry about T&Cs when the government/MOD/LAND rip them up when they want to?

  8. Oh, I'm sorry.....should I be bound to care about the TA?
     
  9. As with most things in the UK it all needs to be scrapped and started again using a blank canvas so to speak. However, because the Country is skint, it isn't going to happen so the TA, NHS, Welfare system etc, etc will continue to be a cause for concern and public outrage. Lets not be fooled into thinking the Tories will be any better either, they might have fine ideas and make great promises but they will soon find the lack of money and the f*ck awful bureaucracy the country suffers will be as great a problem as it is for the current bunch of tosspots.

    And to keep in tune with the forum; No f*ck 'em, they're shit anyway :shakefist:
     
  10. RAF is now "auxiliaries"...not reserves...I think the TA could not be rebadged auxiliaries as 90% of them could not spell it ;)




    Runs and hides under the table :p
     
  11. Doesn't usually stop the feckwits in charge of the purse strings...
     
  12. Well at the rate this government is going don't be surprised if its sold to the private sector to raise finds and its rebranded as "Group 1/4 - the partime but a wholly owned subsidiary of Group4".
