UK - Army recruitment on the increase

Nice to see the BBC reporting this. Especially since the BBC fabricated an Army desertion story. Due to the BBC's stealth editing after my original post, I had to update that post here.

Of course the BBC have to try and pour some cold water on the story.

The armed forces remain under-manned, with part of the problem being blamed on the war in Iraq and low unemployment, our correspondent said.

Oh, and we'll just take the BBC's correspondent's word for it then shall we? I don't think so.

UPDATE I was right and here's the proof from the BBC themselves.

A reader points out a BBC report from two days ago that debunks their own argument.

Unemployment has continued to rise, with the number of people out of work increasing by 92,000 to 1.68 million between April and June.

The number claiming unemployment benefit rose by 2,000 to 957,000 in July, figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) have shown.

The UK's unemployment rate was 5.5% during the quarter, up from 5.2% in the previous three months.
