Hi gents and ladies. Just had a few sasperellaâs in the mess and my mind was going overtime about the on the credit crunch and what long term effects its likely to have on the British military. I donât know why but, I like to have a healthy discussion relax over the bigger scheme of things in life, and mainly what effects us as soldiers in the in the state of current climate of the Brit economy. I know that we as soldiers when deployed overseas get a FFR rate to compensate for the cost of the value decreasing of the GB Pound and the LOA goes up. But.......... Firstly But are there any clever cats out there to explain to me - in laymenâs terms what other effects - will it affect us in the future long and short term on the future budget of the military, ie pay allowances equipment, welfare spending etc. Please keep it simple. Secondly I have the Motley fool book which is good advice and moneysaving expert website. Advice on I.e Lending/borrowing - investing - where to invest/borrowing advice in the current climate. I know there are switched on cookies out there. Iâm SPS but there is a stigmata that we are civilian financial gurus - the old ask the clerk he will know everything... Thirdly I would be grateful what to avoid in the current climate - I.e. American mortgage brokers in the current shiote etc or possible arrser whom have had personal bad experiences they wish to share on poo traps to avoid. Thanks for your help guys.
