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. Maybe it is about time some of our spineless MP's had the Serious Crime Unit in to ask them the same questions?
    Who exactly has been prosecuted over the LIBOR and other scandals?

    • At 1:20, she asks the question we've all been wanting someone to ask FOREVER. Then a government lawyer stumbles over his words.
    • At 2:20, she rattles off another one. Then a government lawyer stumbles over his words.
    • At 2:55, she asks another lawyer the same question. Said lawyer then tries to not stumble over her words.
    • At 3:25, she asks the same question again. That lawyer asks for some time.
    • At 3:45, she gets our back and goes for the knockout punch.
    • And then right after that you reward her good behavior by sharing this with everyone on the Internet. You know you want to.

    apologies for the typo in the subject header, once posted it cannot be edited.

    they just fine the parent and let everyone off scot free which means the tax payer picks up the tab one way or another, they should go for those who received bonuses and reclaim it.

    we most likely picked the process up from their side of the pond so they cant really complain although it is wrong in one aspect but if you go for the one guy he then becomes a scapegoat for the whole rotten system.

    they should fine the managers, directors and traders the entire bonus pot from that year IMO

    they broke up banks, and standard oil in the 30's so they couldnt get too bit and be monopolies, they should also break up multinationals ruining all they touch as well.
  3. Well, let's be honest, what percentage of our very own home grown thieving, cheating MPs faced the full Majesty of the Law re the expenses scandal. Yet, if it were you or I.....

    At least 50% of them should have had the pleasure of a Tape Recorded Interview. The terms 'Whitewash' and 'Cover Up' just don't do it justice!
