The X Factor is an amazingly complicated system of renumeration designed to ensure that soldiers get paid fairly for their services.
The Government brought in this measure to ensure that regardless of operational circumstance, all soldiers get paid an extra little bit to recompense them for the hardship and sheer fuckery of being a member of an Army as badly cared for as this one.
However, it is not all doom and gloom as every soldier believes the X Factor to be a fair and well balanced supplement to pay.
Not to be confused with a reality TV show of the same name.
