Col Richard Kemp, a former commander of British forces in Afghanistan, said more civil servants should join the reserves, but Mr Hammond’s push “smacks of desperation”. He said the Government was using “every possible means of salvaging what’s obviously a fundamentally flawed recruitment plan”.
Flawed recruitment plan? Surely not...
Stan Jnr has been in the process with Capita for over a year now and still has not been attested. To be fair the unit has been excellent and very supportive.
