    I couldn't stop laugghing! I understand changing with the times but will this recruit actual warriors? Is the UK army toast?

    In one of the most ironic responses to this entire incident, one of the soldiers who was used in the ads has said he is going to quite the UK Army after his photo was used in them.

    So quite literally, a snowflake is quitting because his photo was used and he was called a "snowflake". Some things are simply hard to believe they are so ironic.

    "Snowflakes...your army needs you" is worse than the U.S. Army's "Army of One."

    perhaps it's a guise to get them to join, then re-shape them into normal, productive folks while decreasing their numbers on the street... brilliant!!!

    The UK had such a proud military history. Sad that it had come to this.
