After years of cutting down the armed forces there seems to be a big recruitment drive on to build them back up, especially the Army.

There are documentary programmes on following various regiments and a lot of adverts.

Do they know something we don't ?.

Are they expecting civil unrest if Bexit goes wrong ?.

Nooo. If Brexiteers are unhappy they will surely go across the channel and fight the foreigners.

Maybe people do not want to be shot at anymore?
Or they have noticed the way ex soldiers are treated, many ending up homeless.

You could be right NotHermit and being sent to fight in illegal wars, I think people don't want to be sent to war by politicians serving themselves and getting rich on the proceeds.

Why do we need to go across the channel to fight foreigners. We have no problem with them,

More likely to be scrapping with the remoaners if they don't get what they want.

Why would we want to fight foreigners or our own British citizens. Just because half of the British don’t want to leave the EU surely that isn’t a reason to fight them or wish them, their families or their children any harm. You can’t fight people and expect them to suddenly leave all their scruples and morals behind and join you in something they believe will cause great harm.

I would imagine all this stuff is cyclical, just like recruitment for a business - they cut back, then a few years later build up again. Governments do the same thing, unless you're a Corbyn Government of course... tee hee
Jaguar Landrover took on loads of workers a few years ago because they were needed, now they are pruning numbers...
