Swiss Tony's reasoned analysis in this article "Defence Secretary Des Browne faced fresh anger over soldiers' pay last night after suggesting their low wages are justified because many would fail to get better-paid jobs outside the Army. Mr Browne said young recruits were not paid as much as 'uniformed organisations in civilian street' because they lacked the qualifications needed for other jobs...." The academic qualifications and experience required of a better paid traffic warden are what exactly? The formal academic, and any other qualifications required as a condition sine qua non of a member of Parliament are what precisely? None whatsoever! Mr Brown's observation is as intellectually impoverished as he is! This 'creature' has but a short time remaining to acclimatise himself to life outside of Parliament at the next election where, I am sure he will discover for himself precisely what 'unemployable' means.
