'There is a “huge degree of faith” involved in calling on reservists'

TA troops 'too poorly trained to make up for Army cuts’ - Telegraph

Telegraph publishing the blindingly obvious:

The reservists who replace soldiers made redundant as part of the Army cuts lack commitment and proper training...

Of the 30,000 on paper there would be a “massive element” who were not capable, and added that the “practicality of growing a credible reserve component in the regulars is questionable”...
I really don't see how this idea is going to work without a lot more money and getting employers on side, neither of which appear to be happening.
