An example Blair & Broon should follow ...

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. HERE

    ... on the other hand, maybe it should be compulsory for MP's, rather than resigning, in order to prove that they are willing to take responsibility !!!

    Difficult one that.

    The Japanese recognise the concept of shame and disgrace.
    Liabour dines on it daily. "Am I bovvered?"
  3. Pity though, isn't it?

    2 Fu King Tru :D
  5. Heck... imagine the fortune one could make in the sale of rope were folks in Washington DC of the same mind set after getting caught in a scandal. :D

    DC? That deserted city?

    Empty avenues of ... nothing? Derelict restaurants in Georgetown? Abandoned housing in Foggy Bottom?

    Appalling ... I cannot bear the vision, Khyros. :D
  7. We could always make it not subject to personal choice. I doubt there'd be a shortage of trained marksmen for the firing squad and I'd cheerfully supply me own ammo!

    Edited to add: It's not just politicians, though. I remember the spectacle a few years back of the Chairman of one of their major companies on TV with tears streaming down his face making a public and personal apology for the losses it had sustained. The fact the entire Japanese economy was in meltdown at the time seemed neither here nor there, the losses had occurred on his watch so he took the rap for it and resigned.

    In UK PLC, they'd sack a few thousand peons, award themselves a whopping bonus for making such "tough choices" and be off to the golf club for trebles all round and a long weekend.
  8. Why only the spiv Bliar and the 'oik' Brown?

    I wish the revolting Hain and the incompetent Hewitt would follow the example.

    Luckily, for my brain and general well-being, I am unable to remember the names of the remaining filth associated with Bliar.

  10. Hanged eh. Standards are slipping, even in Nippon!!
  11. You could actually make a bomb there, Khyros. After the geezer's stretched his neck, you quietly gather in the rope and flog it again. I mean, it's not as if he's going to notice it's missing, is it?

  12. :D :D :D :D
  13. What about good old drawing and quartering? It's time this made a comeback for certain choice individuals.

    Only joking. I'd settle for war crimes charges, a TV trial presented by Davina, and ensuing life imprisonment - and a new reality TV channel dedicated to covering every waking moment of torment - for Blair, Brown, Goldsmith and anyone else directly related to the trail of death and destruction across Iraq.

    What a tonic that would be for our long-suffering nation.
