    well i'll just keep my opinions of women to myself........seeing as i can smell moderation a mile off. everyone who applies should go on a pre selection course. that would weed out the useless applicants at an early stage , but the problem is that certain units/genders would never again get a place and that wouldn't do now would it

    Sexism in awarding PNCO places is nothing new, also seems like the Pot Officers Course is going the same way.

    Don’t take it to heart though. If God had wanted you to get on in the RDF he would have made you a female, preferably the spawn of your cadre or Coy Comd.

    Redress of wrongs is a waste of time, it was tried in my unit and turns out the Coy Comd has complete discretion in awarding places, and even if he hadn’t, nobody wants to open the Pandora’s box of questioning the decisions of the mighty.

    Not sure what the story is or what people are talking about, but a redress of wrongs can take months to sort out, maybe years if it is a serious case.

    however, if you complain that you have been discriminated against via A7, the complaint must be dealt with within 14-28 days....or something like that.

    Then there is the Ombudsman..... not sure of the story there.

    Hey Steamy,

    we got a latvian who wanted to join up. Local barrack commander took a dislike to the idea n killed his application. Seems, the don't want any of that sort getting in.... came up with some cock and bull story about your mans embassey wouldn't allow him to join even though he had a letter from his local police and embassy and everything. Things didn't add up n on checking the story, we found that the local PDF head boss didnt want no "Eastern Europeans" fouling his barracks.

    Hey Hey, Rascism is alive and well in the Army, and the Pots list shows theyre not even hiding their discrimination

    A7 anyone???

    Where is RDFRA???

    Hey just say the list for the south,

    Major discrimination. I mean there is being discreet and what we have here.... Blatent discrimination. I would say a LOT of people have very valid cases for Redress of wrongs. I mean they didn't even try to hide it.

    Then again, I am not surprised. I have seen racism and discrimination in the DF before, blatent racism.... from higher ups. Now we have discrimination based on Gender. Wonder if the DF ever heard of the Employment Equality act.

    You guys who didn't get the course should straight away go for a redress of wrongs.

    Anyone going to take em on?

    I heard the list was out allright.(somewhere in cork). Its location is on a map. An officer has the map.


    Better off ringing the btc. Or one of those running the course. I'm sure they'll have it.

    MOD: The number of people on the course is not in the public domain and therefore operational information!

    This rant is not because i was not deemed good enough for the pots course, ye can shove it whoever ye are. i'll remain a good private and i'll still laugh at the sh1t3 nco's.
    Roughly how many places went to each coy/bn in the South? How many people are on the course altogether?
