Guardian: "The MoD's Theatre Of The Absurd"

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. So what is your personal insight on all this?
     
  2. Some of the comments to that article are really depressing (particularly as the Posters are allowed to vote).

    I'm sure you'll post an irrelevant article on 'The Register' about it in due course, Lewis... :roll:

    Poorly written article relying on hyperbole rather than fact. Classic example is the '23,000 people in procurement' line. That figure is total BS - the 23,000 refers to the DE&S as a whole, and includes all the old DLO people, the stores guys, the factory workers and so on, plus a lot of Communications types - the actual figure is about 6,000 all up. All the rest work in areas supporting the forces.

    Plenty more of this to come though as people who know jack about HM Forces continue to ponitficate unwisely!
