  2. Remember lads, whatever interest he stirs, it won't increase the Defence Budget. It will simply lead to a different slicing of the same cake. 1SL and CAS need to jump in smartish and push the overall picture.
     
  3. I would agreethat the government will not budge an inch on thebasisof any thing like this, but I feal the dear general had a different audience in mind for hiscomments, the general public. If public opinion changes away from the current 'as long as they do their jobs on the cheap it's OK' attitude to actually wanting a decent deal for servicemen then even hard hearted Gordon will crackand shell out the cash.
