Now with less Basra

The British Army updates its recruitment ads; love the regional accents. Still, they are going to find it hard to compete with the Royal Navy in fleeing the field. Though I notice civilians are doing a fine job of that task without the benefit of the Queen's shilling.

Britain is facing a mass exodus of people looking to escape the crime and grime of modern living. The country’s biggest foreign visa consultancy firm has revealed that applications have soared in the last seven months by 80 per cent to almost 4,000 a week. Ten years ago the figure was just 300 a week. Most people are relocating within the Commonwealth - in Australia, Canada and South Africa. They are almost all young professionals and skilled workers aged 20-40.

Wow.. excellent ads. Wow.. I especially like the "for th e friday nights" bit and how they go from club to inside a jumpship in a very nicely done visual segue.

And I fully support the exodus of young 20-30 year old UK women to Canada. My wife just cannot as much as she tries emulate her grandparent's Manc accent well enough...
