Hi,

See http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-42469901

Quote

"Plans to ditch the Army's Be the Best slogan and its crest logo have been halted by the defence secretary.

The Mail on Sunday said the Army was considering changing the slogan after market research said it was considered "dated, elitist and non-inclusive".

The Ministry of Defence said the Army-commissioned rebrand had cost 520,000 Pounds.

But a spokesman told BBC News that Gavin Williamson believed the Army was "the best of the best" and that the rebrand proposals had been put on hold."

---

Well done, after all they are the best Army in the World.

But, 520,000 Pounds. to confirm it when we know that the British Army like all British forces have been doing more with less ?


Regards, Mick. D

£520,000 is only the start-up cash required to grease the wheels and get the big money-grabbing machine going Mick.

Expect the final bill to be triple or more (excluding the early opt-out clause charge etc).

As Ginge says, jobs for the boys (Rupert, Tarquin, Rodderick, Marcus et al).
