    I remember having to do similar stuff like this and I hated it. Was absolutely zero point to it. Was a complete waste of everyone’s time.

    What an absolute shambles, and a waste of money on pointless technology that no one takes seriously.

    I even hated the SAT range, or whatever it’s called now (Cheers to some officer getting a pay rise for changing the acronym) always found it pointless, and borderline hilarious at how bad it was.

    I couldn’t make it through the whole video.....


    “...Sense of humour” well the lads tried to but you lot didn’t find it funny... poor Corbyn..

    Maybe if the heirarchy stopped messing around on social media thinking someone actually cares.. (because the lads don’t, and I doubt a lot of people even watched that video, or the other cringey horrendous videos on that channel) and did their job..

    And I hate to be the one to break it to him, but the Army’s reputation has been in the toilet for a while now...

    Well if this is an example of the Army using ‘Social Media’ I despair!:(

    The arrogant ‘butch’ body language I find insulting to all members of the Army.-banghead--banghead-

    A total PRONG. As one former Royal Marine was heard to comment.:cool:

    I have no idea how that bloke kept a straight face. He reminded me of the sketch about the lecture by the inflatable headmaster at the inflatable school:

    "You've let me down; you've let the school down; but worse... you've let yourself down."

    The comments on this one are hilarious.

    No one is taking it seriously. Least if all the bloody troops, how cringey!

    Honestly, the military should just remove their social media accounts and do their bloody jobs.
    It’s gone massively downhill since they actually paid people to do this crap. And got all the officers on Twitter and social media like they are some second rate celebrity like someone actually gives a crap.

    That’s what Orders are for. Not social media.


    As a wee cheeky extra:

    Surely the RAF is pretty much obsolete..... we have the Army Air Corps and the Navy Fleet Air Arm....

    The longer clip contains an implied moral equivalence between blokes blasting a poster of Corbyn with simunition and with allegations of a violent sexual assault. What's that all about? -banghead-

    A statement from the boss was appropriate but the message was overwhelmed by cheesy social media presentation. A formal, printed statement might have been more appropriate. Instead, the focus shifts from the alleged offence to mocking the message.

    Just to add... if the boss insists on addressing the blokes then it should be done with style. Compare:

    Absolutely.


    Although I remember the statement released by the CGRM about the Next shop doing the RM clothing, lads still ripped it and hated it. And ignored it by still smashing Next on social media.

    Possibly the only worthwhile thing I’ve ever created!
