Given the current state of the world (ie in rag order) when will HMG call up another batch of TA ? I listened to some Tory MP on Radio 4 the other day going on about Afghanistan and how everyone seems to be planning for up to a decade there. Mind you he seemed to be basing this in part on the Italian contingent installing an expresso machine so I'm not too sure how much credence to place on it. More seriously, will the batch of Int Corps called up earlier this year be replaced ? If we do go into Iraq can the regulars cope without reinforcement ?
