It is one thing to pontificate about possible causes of the accident on a rumour network - the issue here is naming the deceased before the NOK have been told. The mainstream media have a clear...

Frankly we're stuffed. Interestingly though, Hutton did nail the lie that the Public Sector is better paid than the Private Sector. This has been the mantra of the right wing press, esp Daily...

As an RAF officer with cluster responsibilities (ie awarding bonuses) I can only agree. The vast majority of bonuses are paid to those who have simply done an adequate job. You only don't get a bonus...

Speaking personally, I will be leaving the Service sooner rather than later. I am not going to go in a hurry but will bide my time until I have a second career to go to outside - leaving in a hurry...

I think you have missed the subtlety. You will no longer be INVOLSEP so you will want SFA to get CEA. The 50 mile rule will mean they can make you stay at SFA at HQ AIR or PJHQ. If you are already...

How Politics Works

I can answer why cuts happen even though Defence spending goes up although the Minister probably wouldn't. It's simple really. On average the economy as a whole grows by something like 2-3% and the...
