Some of you may remember that I referred to the current situation at the school as a typical business hostile take over. Well now that the first phase is done and dusted (purchase company DEMSS moving from DCLPA to RSME). The second phase has started: place your own people in jobs of influence and power. The WO CMD/BCMD post has appeared in the RE WO postings plot, to be filled this Jun. I know that many of you IEDD gods will be saying that CMD WO is not an influential post nor an appointment of any power but it is the start of things to come. I would like to know who decided this change and why the hell they thought it was perfectly acceptable not to tell anybody at the school. Phase three will be to change the standards and working practices to so that they are more favourable to your people (more RE passing HT course). Phase four, now that you have changed the bits of the company (DEMSS K) that you want (EOD) sell off the parts that you dont want (Storage, Systems, AR, Ammo Storeman, AMANDA, etc given back to DCLPA). As for the idea that the AT trade will move to the RE Sorry to burst your bubble guys but you are being too optimistic, as far as they are concerned they just dont need us. Within a few years they will believe that they have the full EOD capability. We know that they wont and nobody will listen but that is not going to change things.
