Hands up all those with a Brown Envelope. I can't help thinking of what we went through in the early '90s. Once again at the hands of a Tory Government, supposed friends of the Military. I feel a bit like a turkey that voted for Christmas - no-one I know in Green voted for anything other than the Tories in the last General Election and how do they reward us? Yep, by giving us a ******* good shafting. Options for Change, for those who don't remember it, was a brutal savaging of our Armed Forces stemming from the John Major's so called 'Peace Dividend'. The Army lost 45,000 folk over three years. I administered Phase 1 in my Battalion and jumped out in Phase 2. The whole thing was a shambles and morale across the board was decimated. So, here we are again. Hark at the Labour nark on the wireless this morning critising the falling of today's axe. Politicians - I shit 'em. Good luck and best wishes to those of you who are on the off.
