I do my job for the love of it (and the plentiful supply of syphilitic women). I love it so much that I pay most of it back to HMG or the RAO. I'm so dedicated that I choose to buy my own kit (because it works) and I don't mind at all if I get sent to the Banana Republic of Butf*ck because Tony Is My Leader and he will provide all the moral support he can (even if he can't provide the CBA or a decent weapon). Every so often I feel so guilty that I get paid for this job that I volunteer as a fireman.
Anyway, I'm lucky - I don't have to spend anymore money on a wife, as she left me for a fireman.
Thanks to all who've contributed, but I would really like more votes to all these questions, so if you haven't yet done so please help us out by a quick minute or so baring your sould to the ARRSE readership.
