I DO believe the MoD do not know what planet they are on. Their decisions could be decided better by children or even chimpanzees.
I read The Herald a couple of weeks ago and the MoD were on about making quite a lot of HM Forces redundant. I mean to say, how could they even consider throwing our lads (and ladies) on the scrap heap like a load of unwanted rubbish?
Being a veteran myself, I think the idea stinks. Our lads and ladies lead a rough time out in Iraq and Afghanistan and I speak from experience having served (or should I say survived) two tours of duty from 1959 - 1960 and 1966 - 1967. Now, here comes the really funny part. While watching my TV one night, a week or so after the MoD's remarks, lo and behold what comes up on the screen? An advertisement for Army recruiting.
But it does not end there, because a few days later it pops up again followed a bit later on by the RAF also asking for recruits. It beggars belief!

It may be a better idea if the MoD got things in perspective instead of worrying about how much pension they will receive on their retirement.
