2 clear aspects to this - technical and moral.


Technical - he was a pilot, responsible for the lives of all who flew with him. Furthermore, he was doing so in a very demanding and challenging...

Value for Money

Pr00ne raises a very good point. We have the 5th largest defence budget in the world but that doesn't reflect in the size and capability of our armed forces in the global context. Obviously there...

From what I understand, this isn't a problem confined to the light blue. I understand the RN is having equally challenging problems with technical senior rates. I also gather from reliable sources...

MM4 - I wouldn't say the 'fisheads' see the F35 as 'beloved' at all. I have no doubt my dark blue comrades would be delighted to go for a handful of Navy owned and operated Super Hornets. The F35...

Relying on Others...

Surely the recent Syrian example has shown how reliance on other nations may not always deliver the capabilities you have assumed. Admittedly the example is the other way round (i.e. we didn't play...

Not harsh at all. They disobeyed a lawful command and in fact did so in collusion with each other and seemingly led by an NCO who should have been taking lawful steps to address the issues through...

Charity???

Whilst I agree with the view that the new salary of 74k is probably about right, there are clear presentational issues with the implementation.


However, what I really object to as a tax payer...

Not a Bad Effort

Show last night was Ok - no better or worse than many other military fly on the wall documentaries.

However, based on many of those on camera, I would say OC Catering Flight deserves some sort...

Objectively Viewed, This Is Not So Straightforward

Whilst my initial instinct lay with the majority opinion here, I now belive that the issue isn't quite so straightforward.

On the one hand, there is case for ensuring our MPs receive a salary...

Think About The Tax

I shifted to the 05 scheme thinking I would stay until the end, but ended up PVR'ing last year. I did wonder whether, in hindsight, I had made a huge pension mistake, but as it happens I have ended...

I can confirm I have seen in black and white a top of the shop brief which states the Center will "buy out" any legislative change to redundancy payments up until 2015. Basically, terms won't change...

1982 Repeated?

Aside from all the arguments about relative capabilities, the key issue is one of political will. There probably isn't the same will in Argentina to repeat the decisions of 1982 but the worrying...

Who Gets The Chop

I've heard on the grapevine its 4(AC) for the axe, possibly as soon as Apr 10, and the RN won't get the 2nd Sqn within NSW (i.e. the 800/801 split). JFH then left as a 50/50 front line split between...
