There is due to be a march in London today today by a group claiming they want to expeess their rage against the murder (their...
I am posting this out of genuine curiosity, and in the absence of information from other sources.
A thread about the apparent terror attack on the Finsbury Park Mosque was published and then removed by Mods.
Conversation is continuing in two other threads and is exactly the same conversation...

I'm getting pissed tonight.
OK, no big change there you might think, but I am running on borrowed time.
In just under four hours it's my 63rd birthday.
Yeah, congratulations you old git, malt whisky, rum, Pinot Noir etc would normally be in order. But!

Given the ongoing political situation, the apparent division within the country, and the many varying factions fighting for media attention - the country really needs someone we can get behind and get the country back on it's feet.
Is there anyone be it an actor politician sportsman etc that the...
Wonder how long it'll be before this hot spell brings out the brave fuckwits who can't read warning signs but can climb fences?
My money's on Lancashire for the initial outbreak of this particular seasonal excuse for tea lights, teddies and forecourt flowers:eek:
Call from a mate of mine whose slightly bonkers daughter has just moved a few miles away front us.
"Hi Blogg, Mimsey is really worried. The previous owner has left a gas cylinder in the shed and she is afraid it will blow up in the hot weather. She wants to call the fire service but Tarquin...
"In the summertime when the weather is hot
You can stretch right up and touch the sky
When the weather's fine
You got women, you got women on your mind
Have a drink, have a drive
Go out and see what you can find”

Rumours are that Simon Cowell and his pals are producing a charity record for victims of Grenfell Tower; apparently they intend massacring "Bridge over troubled waters"
Is it too early, or even too late for the ARRSE collective to suggest alternatives? Obviously Arthur Browns greatest hit might...
I'm slightly concerned that our PM is now becoming embroiled in local, relatively minor (although none the less tragic) issues. She's suppose to be running the country but has become inexplicably embroiled in a large domestic house fire issue and a hit and run incident.
What on earth is going on?

Great article from the Atlantic on the retention crisis facing the US military - really thought provoking and a lot here that resonates with the UK Military as well.
Can the U.S. Military Win Wars If It Keeps Losing Talented Officers?
The buttons we have are all well and good, but I think a new range of buttons with politer/posher meanings
To start with the "I concur" button.
I eagerly await other suggestions to replace the current buttons
Many ARRSErs are fond of cheese and ready to discuss all related issues. So it would be logical to open special thread devoded to cheese.
Although the USA is the world’s largest producer of cheese. Russia does not even get a look in it is then Germany France and Italy. Production. In 2013, world...

I am not what you would call well known, and I have no degree in literature, journalism, or modern media, all of which seem to be vitally important in the 'new client vetting procedures' of a number of literary agents.
I tried for several years, without...
Over the past couple of weeks there have been a number of threads covering the Grenfell fire, terrorist attacks and the like. In these threads there have been a number of posts which I strongly agree with and would show support for.
The problem I have is it does not feel right adding a "Like"...
Just recently I've had two people tell me the same story, in places that are miles apart. It's roughly "I killed my first man at the age of 16, we were pinned down by a sniper and I was so angry about it that I grabbed a GPMG, ran up the hill and shot him in the foxhole where he was hiding." So...
I just can't run in these goddam magnums, but every time I try to exchange my trusty silver shadows, they give me the black clodhopping monstrosities.

Is it possible to move the smiley icons at the bottom of a post away from the right margin?
If they were moved to the centre or aligned to the left this would cut down the site post count by about half with people no longer complaining about SABCs etc and then the...
I hope to join the RAC as an officer, most probably armoured. I have main board in a few weeks however i cannot find any details about training after attending sandhurst and was wondering if anyone could help me.
I heard so much about these boots and managed to get a pair for a decent price they're the 200g insulated version,
To be honest I'm not impressed I didn't wear them outside the house as I'm not sure I want to keep them they feel heavy and clunky I'm currently wearing Adidas GSG 9.2 and they are...
I'm thinking of going to Vietnam on holiday and was wondering if there was anywhere other than Cu Chi I could get a range in? Apparently the weapons there are fixed in place which is a bit pump.
Any advice appreciated.
Mother has some shares from Fathers estate. A few years ago and through this forum I managed to track most of them down through changes and amalgamations/buy outs. Sadly she would not let me do anything to move shares at the time (or apply for LPOA) as she felt she could manage herself. Now at...
This thought came to me when my friend asked me in the local last night, which is a good path?
Regular Army vs Army Reserve (formerly known as the Territorial Army)
I feel when judging the reservists of today people generally have misconceptions of the standards expected from a...
A very good friend and current work colleague - a Group Captain - was offered an extension (at 52) from 55 to 60, which he accepted (kids at school etc). However, he has decided to dabble in a few resettlement courses and was told - categorically - that he cannot undertake any resettlement...
One of the hidden downsides of Brexit that hasn't been much talked about is all the places that are twinned with towns in the EU. All those roadsigns that will have to be changed, like Dudley- twinned with Paris and Aberystwyth twinned with Nice. The expense will be horrendous.
