British Army in disarray and collapse

British Army in disarray and collapse with surge in
applications for redundancy as many English soldiers want out to join the voluntary
English national army like many of their ex-comrades.

British/English soldiers are fed up with be told lies, seeing
friends killed, and not getting the right kit for the jobs they have to do,
being in wars that they have no business being in said a group serving in Afghanistan,
saying that they didn’t want to be in fight in backing cause of corruption in a
totally unjust corrupted county and they had no faith in the British prime
minister David Cameron, nor the British government   

There has been a massive surge in applications for
redundancy in the British Army, figures obtained by the London Times and other
newspapers have shown.

The overall size of the Army is due to fall by 7,000 from a
current strength of around 100,000 soldiers.

In April the Army said it would make 1,000 soldiers
redundant, hoping half of those would be voluntary, but has in fact had over
900 applications already and can’t keep up with the massive amounts of applications
still coming in.

BBC defence correspondent Jonathan Beale says this will fuel
concerns that the "brightest and best" may leave.

The Army is seeking redundancies as part of its reaction to
the Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR), which came out in October.

It demanded cuts in numbers in the Army, Royal Navy and RAF.

Among the 900 who have already volunteered to leave are
several officers who were earmarked for promotion - including two tipped to be
future generals - and a number of experienced NCOs?

A total of 52 colonels have applied for the 25 redundancies
offered at that level.

Colonel Richard Kemp: "It raises a question of how
aware senior officers are about the state of morale"

Five SAS officers have also chosen to leave, according to
the Telegraph.

Col Richard Kemp, a former commander of British Forces in
Afghanistan, said the armed forces today was seen as a "declining
industry" and high calibre people want to leave because they no longer see
career prospects in the Army.

While the Army has hit its target of 1,000 redundancies, he
says, bosses had been hoping fewer would apply and they would be able to
"weed out the remainder".

"In some ways it's good news because it means there
probably aren't going to be that many people who are made redundant
compulsorily," he told BBC Radio 5 live but more and more are queuing up
to get out.

"But on the downside it does suggest some people who
are very high quality will be going, people who wouldn't have been normally
selected for redundancy, and that can't be good news for the armed

The Army Families Federation has already warned of low

But an Army spokesman said it was working to ensure it had
the right balance of experience to maintain its commitments for the future.

Head of Army Manning, Brigadier Richard Nugee, said:
"The Army will select a mixture of personnel for redundancy that
preserves, across all cap badges, ranks and trades, the right balance of
experience, skill and potential to ensure the Army is able to maintain its
operational commitments and to continue its outstanding service in the future."

Sir Michael Black-Feather the English first minister and a
former Colonel in the British forces S.O.G, now Chaplin General in the ENA said,
that the head of the British Army, General Sir Peter Wall, held informal
interviews with some High ranking officers to discourage them from seeking
redundancy he was told by some high ranking friends still serving in the British
army who have put their names forward to quit.

One anonymous high ranking officer who is seeking voluntary
redundancy told the London Times and the Telegraph: "When you really know
what's going on at the moment and the amount of money that's needed to be saved
and the impact of that on the Army, what's the point of staying?

"People are seeing the writing on the wall and are
saying it's time to go," he added.

An infantry commander said: "I have never known morale
quite so shocking. People see the way it's going. There's a real fear of
further cuts in 2015."
