"You're a poo-poo head!"..."No, you're a poo-poo head" - Sticky for handbag swinging

He states that he uses it because the young CMTs he talks to (who?) won't know about MAs. Despite defence medical training being tri service since 1996.

We have a generation of CMTs who trained with and served with Navy and RAF medics, and who know exactly what's what.
Nottingham city centre must be heaving with young CMTs all swarming to the SWP stand to have a chat with the municipal pigeon shouter.

No really. They'll be very impressed with his Incredible tales of fearless derring do. Something to aspire to as their RAMC careers develop.

Correct use of the word "incredible" there. Although there may be a case for the phrase "derring don't" to be invented.

I have a question about socialism:-
Which of these statements best describes Socialism?

To be a socialist means to let the ego serve the neighbour, to sacrifice the self for the whole. In its deepest sense socialism equals service. The individual refrains and the commonwealth demands.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

Oh well, Socialism is without bounds of time so it'll wait...
 
I don't know about anyone else, but whenever I see anyone with more than one lapel badge or pin I immediately think "throbber" and start moving away.

Like when I'm exhibiting at model railway exhibitions, the majority of people (including traders and exhibitors) are pretty normal. But there will always be one who you know is going to start counting riverts and telling you that you can't run that loco with those coaches. Inevitably they will have a greasy windcheater covered in badges which will give them away before they get near you.
A bit like those who wear a top hat or Dickie bow as a general affectation: a sure-fire twát indicator.

So tankies then?
Pretty much
Tankie.
A hardline Stalinist. A tankie is a member of a communist group or a "fellow traveller" (sympathiser) who believes fully in the political system of the Soviet Union and defends/defended the actions of the Soviet Union and other accredited states (China, Serbia, etc.) to the hilt, even in cases where other communists criticise their policies or actions. For instance, such a person favours overseas interventions by Soviet-style states, defends these regimes when they engage in human rights violations, and wishes to establish a similar system in other countries such as Britain and America.

<removed corps colours top hat and matching bow tie, hides regimental blazer covered in badges and replaces monocle with normal glasses, folds driving gloves inside hat>

That's a bit of a harsh view of the RTR
 
I'm guessing you have the unabridged version of that photo @stacker1. Can you confirm if the face behind the blue looks anything like the melted welly face with the noodle arms?
He looks like a decrepit old man,not long for this world, all that time stood in the cold waving around placards and getting pointless petitions signed have really taken their toll.

Similar experience at scale modelling shows with the 'B' brigade;
- Bloater
- Beard
- Body Odour
- Black T-shirt (probably a tour/concert souvenir of some obscure death metal band)
- Badge collection
- Backpack
- Bore

Although in fairness, I do wash, don't wear badges and don't usually bring a Bergen otherwise. . .

I will admit to points two and 4.

occasionally with a daysack, so I'll accept point 6.


However, I don't go to scale modelling shows
