Angry Intellectual and Mental Capacity

OK - reporting back and pretty disgusted..... CAS statement during recent Harrier review (which incidentally has gone really quiet...anyone know of any outcomes in the dispute??) is the following:

".......the majority of key appointments are held by FJ pilots (indeed exclusively at 3* and above at the moment). This is not by accident.....the very intellectual and mental capacity attributes that help distinguish a FJ pilot.....drive these statistics."

Not sure really what more to say to this blatant arrogance! What does it really say about the rest of us who, for whatever reason, support our Service honourably in another way? I'm pretty sure there are many others that possess at least equal (or indeed infinitely greater if this is an example to go by!) intellectual and mental capacity.

Angry and ashamed. H-W
