It doesn't "need" saying at all. But you can keep saying it all you like. I'm repeating a response I've already made to you which you've already said you agree with. But if you keep saying it, I'll keep saying it back.
It doesn't matter whether it really is the civil servants or not (and we don't know. The decision making process for this will be hidden and buried behind countless meeting minutes and corporate bureaucracy). This is the RAF's celebration. They're the ones doing the showing off, it's their celebration, and they're the ones in receipt of the feedback whether that's good or bad. I've also already stated that I'm sure that a great many in the RAF are ashamed and embarrassed at these weird logos on their jets. No-one is singling out hard-working RAF personnel. Obviously these decisions are made far and above what personnel probably had in mind. But again, regardless of who made (or forced) the decision, it's the RAF's event, not Whitehall's.
I reiterate, I'd bet money that if the RAF were pulling a blinder in these celebrations (there are some things I think are done quite well, tbf), that you would not be saying "no, guys, none of this is the RAF - you must direct your praise to the faceless civil servants in Whitehall" No-one said "guys, let's congratulate the civil servants who allowed this to happen" when the Battle of Britain Typhoon rolled out of the paint shop three years ago.
It's not "bratish enthusiasts" wanting a pretty jet to look at. At least not in whole. It's a catastrophic failure of message. You know the corporate strapline. Explain to me how these weird ill-fitting corporate-logo adorned machines do that, because try as I might I fail completely to understand in that regard.
And again, it completely fails to deal with the point that we've seen some outstanding "special" schemes from the RAF in years where no specific budget has been allocated to them to celebrate. We've seen several squadron centenary tails/colours/badges on a lot of different airframes from A400s to Typhoons and most in between, a D-Day Typhoon, two specially-marked "display" Typhoons, a Battle of Britain Typhoon, an Op Granby Tornado, a desert-colour Tucano, a Battle of Britain Tucano, poppy-adorned King Airs, the list extends and extends. All without, to my knowledge, civil servants mandating a "squadron celebration procedure" so that each squadron celebrated their birthday in the same fashion, style, or colours.
All at a time where no specific budget was allocated. And they were, for the most part, pretty decent. Two things stand out to me when looking back on those, it was the RAF praised when each was "uncovered", not the MoD, as I've said. The second is the real sticking point - we know that the RAF can do better.
But through all of this, the last time I laid it out in response to the "it's not the RAF's fault" rhetoric, you agreed with most of what I said. But stood by your position without really explaining how you could do that.
So, I guess, you can keep saying it. And you can keep calling us brats, but people (not just I) have already responded on the points you've raised. If you remain utterly unconvinced by whatever anyone else says, I'm unsure why you feel that anyone will be convinced by what you say, regardless of how many times you repeat it.
P.s. - per your request, I've managed to write all of that without referencing the "damn garden". I hope that suffices.
