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. A thundering disgrace!

    The above quote, is a posting that appeared in another site, called the “British Independence and Democracy Forum”

    NB Which I would reasonably assume has no connection with this site! http://www.arrse.co.uk/

    I am sure there are plenty of people both inside and outside HM Armed forces who have strong views on Chief of the General Staff General Sir Mike Jackson, both highly positive and highly negative and all shades of opinion in between, that is what living in a democracy is all about and in essence that is what the British Armed forces are there to protect, that is one’s essential freedoms as a British citizen, such as e.g. the right to criticise those in positions of authority, however in my view there is no call for the sort of abusive language employed by the poster Mikeuk and frankly it is quite simply unacceptable.

    A note of caution. It can be difficult to establish the identity of people who post comments on the Internet, but many people seem to think Mikeuk and a certain individual are one and the same person and that certain individual has been known to resort to the courts in respect of comments allegedly made about him.

  2. So if it was posted elsewhere why are you trying to link it to arrse then?
     
  3. That is a fair question, I think people will be interested in the posting you refer to, that I put up here.

  4. It's an opinion…


    I've got no great love for Gen. Jackson either these days, too close to Blair in my books.

  5. Too Good ToWalk, I am not critizing your comment Per se, but [ if you have not done so allready ] take a good look at the posts this "Mikeuk" makes and I wonder will you feel the same way?
