Another Bullshit Headline

Defence jobs to fall by 500



But when you read the very first sentence in the article you find actually there is no reduction at all in Defence jobs.Link
There will be 500 fewer military staff in uniform by the end of the year, including personnel from the Linton, Waiouru and Ohakea bases, as the Government begins its civilianisation of the Defence Force.

It is simply that some of the jobs can better be done by civilians thereby releasing more defense personnel to be trained to kill the mofo enemy bastards - which is their real job.

As always, New Zealand's pathetic antique media can be relied upon to misrepresent.

Is it incompetence, laziness or pro-Liabour guile?

It probably is an outsourced Ocker headline writer. The story itself is quite OK so I think incompetence combined with sensation seeking may be the answer.
