Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Evenin' all. First post under my new avatar (used to be Grumpy Old Man but I've.......errm......been away for a bit).

    Anyhoo-to business........................

    Firstly, if this one has been done before, I apologise: if not - THEN BLEDDY WAKEN UP!!!

    I've been reliably informed by a gentleman, whom I used to put on Show Parade with alarming regularity some years ago, that HM Gubberment have decided NOT to use the Red Arrows to open the aforementioned 2012 Olympiad as it maybe deemed to be too British!!!!!

    What kok.

    Complete and utter kok, in fact.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I invite you to voice your dismay at this piece of art school socialism at the following link http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/RedArrows2012/

    Please treat this as your FPF and give it a demm good snotting!!!
  2. Is He a member of the Olympic Committee, the council in the area, the booking people for the Red Arrows? The last time this came up I saw absolutely no evidence that it was so, perhaps You can tell us all how Your oppo came by His information.
  3. Dunno what the source is but I've been provisionally quoted the Dept of Culture, Media and Generally Hugging People Who Maybe Differently Abled Than The Rest Of Us etc etc................

    Whatever. Nearly 3500 other souls beleive that thereis some credence to this poo and have signed the petition at PM Broon's website.
  4. Yeeesss

    How many signed up to the petition on the Para moritorium petition, which turned out to be untruths written up by a certain Torygraph newspaper
  5. Quite probable but at least some Broon lackey will get close to suicidal as they sort out the website...............

    .......and, knowing Neue Labour, if it was'nt true, it may soon be so........!

    The Scum, I suspect. Link.


    Edit for being a quote mong.
  7. Translation - The government are aiming to disband the Red Arrows before 2012.

    I wonder what language they will do the opening ceremony in, English seems a bit crass?
