Why do singlies get LOA?

Why do singlies get LOA? They have no family to feed and never venture off camp unless its to drive back to the UK or the pizza delivery boy is off work.
Pads's who have famalies and a house to support have recently had their LOA cut!! Singlie LOA should be taken away to supplement the pad's.
Your thoughts please.

my thoughts...

you are a tube.

loa is supposed to be for phoning home and supplimenting to the cost of "british" products you get abroad. these items cost a bit more than usual, especially newspapers and such and such. as a singly i find that you quote reference never venturing off camp is bollocks. just because you shop at lidl instead of naffi max does not make you a well travelled deutsch master.

im off to dortmund today to try and spend some of my already minimal LOA and get away from the pads brats that seem to multiply daily on my camp. chavving it up in the naffi shop and living off daddys rank/reputation.

CUT PADS LOA AND STEM THE TIDE OF BURBERRY ON OUR BARRACKS

I'm with Jack on this one.

Someone tell me what single soldiers need LOA for? They dont have large shopping bills, they eat in the cookhouse at no extra cost. Pad's require the cash for books for their kids which cant be bought locally in english as well as the extra mouthes to feed, cloth and entertain.
I dont see why sitting in your room w@nking all day constitutes a requirement for extra money.

They even get LOA when on tour, do they leave anyone behind in that country? NO, so why residual LOA. It should be stopped fully as LSSA is enough. Why stop there, they should not even have tha same rate of LSSA
as pad's as they dont have the added stress of leaving immediate family behind (their right hand gets to go tour with them!). Maybe they should stop whining about LOA and be gratefull for what they have.

Hmm, Two knobs on this thread.

I am a pad myself, but singlies also have to spend extra money on things such as continental headlights, green card for insurance, etc.

LOA is so that you are not financially inconvienenced by living abroad.

So the answer is no, Singlies should have LOA.

LOA/LSSB/LSSA is an entitlement to all over the military fullstop. Open your eyes and remove that wool :wink:

This is obviously a wind up. Don't bite to the fcuking wedgehead. And if it isn't, Jack, you are a credit to your Corps

A true and ignorant knobber of the first order!

Perhaps he doesn't realise that singlies still want to watch Brit TV, drink Brit ale and phone home now and then. They also go back to the UK more frequently as they are not allowed to bring over their girlfriends or family, while Pads have a nice house for relatives to stay in. As with Pads they get ripped off by the nazi banks (who do not charge locals monthly account fees but used to charge us a fortune). I would suggest that next time the LOA review team visit his barracks that he asks them what LOA is supposed to pay for.

Then hopefully everyone in the room will stamp on his head.

Correction - two brand new knobs on the thread. Quite a coincidence to have two new users backing up each other's rant huh?

Prehaps if the pads did the same duties as the singlies same details as the singlies. When I was single I had no family to go back to apart from room that was more like a cell. In the leave period ,pads only have to drive to there estates my lads have to drive for eight hours just to see there loved ones. So shut it you moronic wedgehead fatbadge mong.

If your room was that bad you should have been glad of all the duties keeping you out of it...

Jack RE (or cu*t ) as we know you,

Well as a PAD spending my 55 quid a day plus 234 days LSSA , what I do use is that thing in front of you , you know the big wankking box in front of you to look in on the ARMY site, Are you in it?

You don't seem to know how to use it but the majic box can show you things other than .. www. lickyoursmallcockandletmedribble.knob Site .

As it shows that:

Meals Out, Drinks out, Mess Functions, Drinks in Mess, Food in Mess, Home

Entertainments, Food at Home, Drinks at home, Public transport, Recorded Music, Newspapers/Magazines, Telecommunications, Sports & Hobbies, Dry Cleaning, Laundry, Running a Car, Household cleaning materials, Stationary/Postage, Toiletries, Clothing, Cigarettes, Hairdressing, Cinema/Spectator Sports, Toys, Babysitting, TV/Video, Domestic Assistance, Bank Charges and Leave Accommodation.

Even as a Mongoloid dwarf ******** village idiot you might be able to recognise one thing that you spend cash on . Other than wet wipes and screen cleaner.

Eh?

Pads or Singlies, they do the same duties. It may be more common for a singley to be spammed at last minute, but unfortuneatly if we need a replacement at short notice, we ain't going to drive around the pad looking for people when we can go to the block.

If your room was like a cell, why not make it more homely? I used to.

Pads also drive 8 hours home, some singlies don't and drive around Europe.

I never understood why there was such a huge difference in the scales for LOA on unnacompanied tours or Pond Jump wests as a WO2 cant need any more than a cpl or a pte whilst on 6 weeks ex! Still it was that way eh?
