With the current round of cuts in the armed forces including the loss of several historic English regiments the troops, both serving and ex serving, have had enough...
We are organising a march on London to give the government what for.... If you want to piss someone off, best not do that to battle hardened British soldiers...
These regiments have 400 years of tradition behind them, much blood spilled under those colours... This will not stand...
On the plus side, with my conversations with the lads, they have woken up to the fact that our government is the REAL enemy... It is also good to see that many lads are coming on the march too..
This will get messy..

It behoves us all, soldiers, students, workers, unemployed, the disabled and the able bodied to stand shoulder to shoulder with our sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers that make up this fine country and with a single force of will proclaim, "ENOUGH!"

That is true, though still does not make it right.
Just waiting to see how much the gov decides to spend on privately hired companies to take the place of regular military units, that will be a scary moment for us all.

Would it be historic precedent if this happened?
Whilst I am happy for anybody to protest I must admit the thought of the army demostrating makes me feel uneasy for some reason.
Do you need permission from higher ranks to do this?
Is the a large level of discontent at all levels?
Is this a prelude to a coup de tete?
