Why is the Army running an extensive recruitment campaign at the same time as making a load of redundencies?

The Army haven't protected *us* for over half a century - they protect British interests overseas and in the process stir up the sort of resentment that actually endangers us more here.

If it's so dangerous here, why don't you go somewhere where it'll be a bit safer for you?
As ever, you fail to see the irony and continue you're vitriolic, bilious disdain for HM Forces, the very same that preserve the democracy that allows you to continue posting it.

And I don't suppose in all that time you or your family have ever had to call on the Fire Service to protect you, but they are always there if you do need them.

Fresh blood was actually what the Army officer said on the TV last night. He didn't mean it literally. We all use the expression when recruiting new staff.
oh aog, do have a chill pill!
come the next war i hope those who bleat on about not being protected remember those words. Same as the police, those who crib about them, are the first ones to call them when they have been hurt, burgled.
Brilliant idea,though-Sack them from a job where they could help with natural disasters etc, -and put them on the Dole !!!
