No there isn't, there's a muddled compromise produced by a poisonous mix of infighting, horse trading, political expediency and a fatal attraction for shiny kit.
And this will somehow change if we call it a national defence plan?

No. It will change if we change our approach and those charged with drawing the thing up are given great clarity about the desired outcome and the standards of objectivity and decision-making required of them in reaching it.

So basically the pay system is going back to how it was pre 2001? Like PAYD, beware of what you wish for. The amount of complaining about higher/lower bands, a lower rank earning more than a higher rank etc has bought this on so we've only got ourselves (collectively) to blame.
Total bollocks. The Treasury are making moves to reduce incremental pay across the public sector. It's about finding the extra Bns to fund the various promises the government made in and since the election, not about some Cpl bitching about what a Pte gets paid.

The "complaining" you think is so influential has been more or less invisible to me, let alone a Treasury civil servant...
