When I first saw this I was very concerned. Not only because they were openly recruiting but the way in which they were doing so.

I and my comrades were approached by claimants walking in and out. The words of one claimant I have never forgotten. He said ” I was approached by a member of the army recruiting team. They said to me that there was nothing here for me, nothing at all going for me. I may as well give up.”

People do not want or welcome war they are more aware of the pros and cons and would not feel it right take another’s life joining the army is asking you to do this 😪. Trying to coheres the young lads to join the army under duress is not right there left with no option just to make the governments figures look good . It’s as bad when men were tricked to take the queens shilling to join the navy . This type of recruiting needs be stopped .we have heard of the lack of equipment ect and money being put into defence so why are they trying to recruit them ????? Will the government part of Tory cons be sending there offspring to the army ? They should lead by example if they believe the poor fringe have no option , who’s fault is that ? Who’s made a mess of running our country ????
    It seems the poorer people jobless disabled and vulnerable are all fair game to abuse and keep downtrodden no way out of poverty . Unless of course you join the army 😤😤😤😤
