Ministry of Defence declares 39 staff Common Purpose trained at minimum cost of £154,000

The Ministry of Defence declares that 39 'Senior and Fast Stream' staff have been Common Purpose trained. The MOD appears to be pushing the fact that senior and 'better quality staff' have been selected for Common Purpose training. Just what are MOD staff doing aligning themselves with a pro EU political charity. They should not be connected with any political organisations. How many meetings are these people having under Chatham House rules of secrecy?

Assuming each course was £3,950 the total cost to the MOD was £154,050 plus VAT. The MOD cannot afford to equip front line troops with the proper body armour or armoured vehicles, but can spend it on quasi 'leadership' training for which there is no tangible benefit. Are you happy to have your taxes wasted in this way?
