Heya fellas! I'm currently a student at university and I was looking at becoming an Int Corps soldier as I'm really interested in intelligence work. I've got some worries about the vetting though. I went for a job at the MoD some years ago, got a provisional offer but failed the security vetting after one month into the process. They couldn't tell me the reason why which is fair enough as it might reveal their methods. I have British-Irish dual nationality and my accent is very half and half. I have lived in the UK since 1987, having been born Irish. My parents are of UK, Irish or Commonwealth origin. At the time of applying to the MoD, I wasn't a British citizen so that may have been the reason why they couldn't give me clearance. However, I studied in the Republic of Ireland and one fairly recent year [after the Good Friday Agreement] I joined every single Irish political party you could think of as I was studying Politics at the time. I did it to look at which party I was interested in. However Sinn Fein was among one of the parties I joined, as well as the Green, Labour and Centre-Right and Centre-Left parties. In the end I never EVER went to any Shinner meeting, or took part in any political campaign of theirs. I received emails from then but, to be honest, i didn't even read them. I'm happy to be honest about this in the process [although i neglected to mention this when applying to the MoD], and the fact that I really did very little at university except drink and score girls. My worry is, despite being honest, would I still be fcuked? I am proud of my Irishness but also very aware that Sinn Fein are a bunch of murderers and bootleggers as do most people in Ireland. And then's my student loan - i missed some payments but they're cleared now. I got out another one but the repayments aren't due for awhile. And i've no credit cards, so whenever i try and get one its nearly always rejected! will the financial check show this? Lads, and ladies, sorry for going on a bit, but all i really want to know is am i fcuked?
