The deal is done its just at cabinet level now waiting to rubber stamped. I just wish they would hurry up and deliver the news it's driving me nuts.
Hopefully the RN & RFA wont fair too badly, we live in hope.
Naval_Gazer said:SDSR is being coordinated by VCDS (an Army General) and the National Security Council has only one uniformed member (CDS), effectively the incoming Sir David Richards (another Army General who has already made his views known). It will also be affected by Lord Dannatt (yet another Army General) in his role as the adviser to the Conservative Party on defence.
I'd say that the RN and the RAF are going to be well and truly stuffed!

Not sure if it is 'published' yet, but it was announced to my unit last week that the PM will deliver 'big hand' stuff on 27th October in Parliament and the nitty gritty will be announced in units on 28th October.
And no, it wasn't announced by the NAAFI manager!
