    I gather that the 600,000 names are those recruited to the Forces or who have interest in joining.
    That’s a pretty big number and, should even 50% be unqualified, that’s a lot of volunteers.
    Trouble is that there aren’t enough broomsticks to equip them. What a weak, shabby country it has become.
