Hmmm call me cynical but, we know reservists and TA do a grand job in providing trained reserves to support our stretched manpower for which we are so very short of at the moment in various theatres. But I ask myself this question - If a TA person relies on the pay, and I suspect many do, in these hard economical/job times and this may be relied upon support is stopped - Is this a cunning plan by the powers that be to get more to volunteer for regular attachments so the reservist can help maintain and support themselves?. So, by cutting the reserve's pay and by moving them to regular Army pay they can demonstrate a saving in one buget and by showing more recruitment overall!!! hmm Food for thought. Joint Policy thinking - I Wish!!!
