I see danger approaching but those in its path aren't aware

I feel as if I am in one of those nightmares where you can see the approaching danger but cannot make those in its path aware. I think the

mess-up with the global sum calculation shows how dangerously we will live in future.

It is not the detail that is the problem but the overall concept. Defence fees are going up much faster than inflation and staff wages probably will too. Can we rely on our negotiators to win increases to compensate for these? A tiny miscalculation and we will again be in trouble.

All the good bits of the contract could have been bolted on to the old one, which was so complex that it could absorb minor shocks. You need to have enormous trust in the GPC to go along with this revolution and I do not think they have earned it.

Why is anyone except PMS doctors or non-principals even thinking of voting Yes?
