What now for the EU ?

The one I know well, graduated with a degree in operations research, then worked in shampoo supply chains for one of the major retailers; then toothpaste (for the whole of the EU area) for one of the pharma companies; and now runs one of the vaccine supply chains for the whole of Europe. That’s the trajectory of the sorts of people who are dealing with this sort of thing.

A bit more complicated than writing out the ration list or arranging ammo for an exercise :) whilst you were clearly good at what you did, it was not exactly on the same scale as the professionals who do this sort of thing for the major companies. What do you say - a senior army logistics bod if they are lucky might get a project on the scale the scale of this individuals day job once per career?
Ah

I get it.

You are thinking Army logistitian, rather than someone who deals with logistics. Or the supply chain as it is often called.

Here is the thing. If your bloke is running a supply chain then he is, by definition a logistitian.

Even if he or she is running a supply chain for shampoo.

I'm sure he's worth it.

Apologies for self-quoting but an "informative" for that.

Holy fcuk.
 
If we give money to the EU, or indeed anybody else, it becomes their money, to do with as they wish.

It is no longer our money.
 
So a loggie also has to write up what qualified supply chain experts have to say now? So you are also an expert in public communication too? A media specialist?

Amazing if so. Your talents and final word on just about any topic truly knows no bounds - medicine, operations research, how to run a supply chain stretching across the whole of Europe, and now communications. A person of many talents indeed.
Whereas you hold yourself out to know about finance, which is truly lamentable. Stick to flogging insurance plans and/or pensions, it's the "finance" equivalent of working at McDonalds.

Far be it from me to interrupt a thrilling intellectual debate, with a PhD Magic Roundabout type but..

We can all agree that Paratroopers, who occupy dominate the pantheon of hard bastards, occasionally need victualling.

In the 'hard bastards of the underworld' tendering process, we dragged the stupid lobster for five miles behind our XR3i chariots. Sadly neither his bid, nor him, made it past the tender board (me).

If I want someone to supply me stuff where and when it's needed I won't be approaching limp-wristed flabby-jowled f*ckwits like the crap crustacean and the soup sergeant.

Funnily enough I had a bit of a cnut off with someone else on another thread over a difference of opinion over the necessity (my view) for military loggies to be a soldier first.

Aim of the game is to see a box of 400 belt scudding across the floor in the direction of the GPMG gunner who out of the corner of his eye is just watching the last 50 rounds coming out of the current box.

Although to be honest I think doctors should do it.

I see Friday night has arrived early for some of you.
You have been singularly unable to give a credible response to any reasonable questions related to the thread title - 'What Now for the EU'.

Unless you can prove otherwise?

More Buckie?

Can't we all sit down and have a discussion about whether the GPMG gunner really needs it And whether he would be better served by someone with fu*ckall experience in logistics but who can do Matlab (or have a username of Mattlb) and can waffle about 'just in time' (but not actually there)?

We value you Lobster mong. What do you think will happen now for the EU?
