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. IMO it's a bit of a cheat including the state-owned banks in the figures. Their pay packets aren't subject to the rules of the public sector and they're furiously resisting any attempt to make it so.

    Having said that, I can't help but wonder if we'd not be better off paying less and attracting only the 2nd, 3rd or 10th best talent for the job. If the standard of public service we currently 'enjoy' is the result of the attentions of the very best, then God help us as a nation.

    Deeper sigh!

  3. I think that 324th is over generous - I would hope that privates in training would get paid more than Gordon Brown. You know .... performance related pay and all that.

    This government goes against the old saying 'you get what you pay for'!! - they abbreviated it to 'you pay'
