It was nice of the RAF to offer me promotion this year, but even with the carrot of 100 grand, it's not enough to make me want to stay in. Spent the last 18 months having weekends and evenings free, and rather like it.

Had a great time in, but looking forward to leaving.

Still, for those that were intending to stay in anyway, it will be a nice bonus, even though it won't tempt a soul who was planning on going!

Couldn't have said it better myself - If the MOD want people to change their minds about leaving at their 38/16, then 100K is not even close - A straw poll in the crewroom of 7 Flt Lt's, (oldest 37, youngest 28), brought in a lowest 'I'll stay in for that' figure of 250K Tax free, up to a max of '...there isn't enough money'.

Those who are holding out for an FRI before making a decision are wasting their time - it will be a nice 'stocking filler' for those who are already going to stay, but it won't be enough to make anyone believe in Santa again. Trust me.

The subject of the next AFPRB outcome and FRI's used to be a hot topic in the crewroom, but not anymore...all you hear now is '...don't care how much it is, I'm not staying'

Forget FRI's, and pay aircrew what they are worth, and I guarantee that some will stay (I'm talking big airline captain's pay - PA Spine is not even close). I would...probably.

MP's want a 60% payrise because they work hard and serve the nation. Well by that logic I reckon the Armed Forces have easily earned a 100% payrise...and MP's care to disagree? Thought not, you greedy, useless leeches.

Oh, if you think it's bad now, wait until Mr Brown is in the chair - he engineered a huge proportion of our current problems, and it will be worse when he gets his way all the time. Didn't we used to shoot traitors?

Will the last bloke to leave put the cat out and hand the Queen the Station Ensign - there's not going to be anything left to defend soon.
