Don't blame the RAF for the navy problems - nowt to do with them.
I beg to differ and blaming the MOD is naive. However, I'm still covered by SC and OSA, so wrong place, wrong time.

Just one last word - we quoted the navy £125,000 to fit one of our systems along side but instead they opted to get the job done by the shipyard for £2 million - why - because they could not move money between different budgets - just how stupid is that.

That's the governments financial regulations for you - absolutely nothing to do with specific services (although the Levene defence reform review of 2011 did recommend that service chiefs were empowered with more freedom of financial control to try and prevent that kind of wastage)

Ok one final word from me. Falklands stationary budget £90000 run by 5 people Sgt and below as there only job, an carriers stationary budget £150000 run by one able rate as one of his many jobs. just one of the many example of raf job creation.
