  2. Big fcuking wow eh? 142 quid. Great stuff. Well worth 8 months away and the constant risk of minestrike etc.
     
  3. I heard a recent rumour that the number of people departing has jumped.

    I attended a resettlement fair recently and was shocked to find that it was packed solid! They can't all be planning to leave!

    Litotes
     
  4. I dont think its a rumour, and I bet they are! :cry:
     
  5. Exactly the same free medical care that any asylum seeker, dole queue wallah or millionaire would get back home. Fukcin spin the lot of it!
     
  6. Lets be fair here on a 6 month tour that works out at an incredible 78p a day, almost a third of the price of a pint.
     
  7. I now work in Resettlement and believe me, they are!
     
  8. was it 20k last year that left and only managed to pull 11k new recruits back through?

    As much as more pay would be great, our gov simply cannot afford it without lowering MP salaries, Aid to 3rd world countries all that stuff etc, thats just not on is it!... think of those hard working MP's risking their lifes daily.
