Comment posted Argylls to be scrapped – along with the best recruiting battalion in the army by Iain McCallum.
I am repeating myself, but there are Tory grandees spinning madly in their graves at this pathetic excuse of a Tory government’s destruction of the British Army. My understanding is that they want the TA to supplement the Regulars. That will never work. With due respect to the Terriers, they can never be as well trained and prepared as regulars. And worse still, what employer in their right mind will employ, or allow their staff to join, the TA? TA troops will be away from their full time job most of the time to cover the short fall, leaving an employer to cover for the gap that will be created.
As an ex-Royal Marine and a (soon to be) ex-Tory voter I could weep

Great news, but surely the nearest 24 hour station must be Dumbarton rather than Fort William? I know its a bit away, but it is closer than 64 miles from Arrochar

Gaelic is a real minority language, but down here in Welsh Wales the ability to speak the (minority) language is nothing less than an advantage when it comes to applying for jobs, especially in the public sector. I don’t know where your friends children’s University friends were from, but in reality no-one, especially in the younger generation even if educated in the medium of Welsh, cannot speak English to a fluent level sufficient to get on in the English speaking world

But who should NATO have retaliated against Alistair? A bunch of individuals not affiliated to any country in particular? And I agree with you regarding the EU’s failure to defend. Julian Thompson was just highlighting how the EU is not, and has not, been capable of keeping the peace since the war, despite that old chestnut being trotted out time and again by the Europhiles. Ukraine and Kosovo being the prime examples of the ineptitude of that organisation

Crikey I hope the driver and passengers of that blue car did the lottery when they got down, cause they are fortunate as can be. How scary is that??
