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. Without wanting to go into the intricacies of BNP policies, after seeing this article in today's Telegraph I was wondering, just how much of the population falls under this description?

    So where does this leave the Royal Family then? Does this mean Prince Charles is "only partially from this country"?
     
  2. I know it's not really the subject of the thread, but does anybody know the BNP take on Micks? Are we "allowed" or not?

    What...someone having a go at Kelly Holmes!!! Outrageous...I love her!!! Jamaican father...well that means she probably has a good chunk of Irish, Scots, (Welsh?) and English blood for generations before her father ever married her 'white' mother...
     
  4. Errrrr, no idea :D
    Besides, very few people actually care what the BNP want. There is an outside hope (of at least a million people) that voting the BNP will force the mainstream to actually acknowledge and deal with asylum and immigration issues.


    I suppose I may be inclined to agree with Mr Brons on one thing, I dislike the Asian British or Black British type of discription. To my mind you are either British or you are not. Colour or religion is nothing to do with it. It might be an unpopular opinion but I'm afraid the choice is simple, you are British or you aren't. There isn't anything inbetween.
     
  5. I'm a Yorkshireman, does that mean I don't belong in this country?
     
  6. To be quite honest, I don't think I have ever heard of Black British - its a yank thing that hasn't made it over here, has it?
     
  7. they love infact they love you so much they want to "invite" eire to join the federation of the UK :roll:
    what with there plan to hand out assualt rifles to every able bodied man what could possibly go wrong :roll:

    if they were'nt racists everyone would have realized just how loony they are

  9. Of course you do, haven't you heard of multi-culturism and diversity?

    Black British is quite a common usuage. In America the use of Black has slightly subsided, partly as a result of afrocentric thought, the preferred term is African-American I think...

    (edited to add, there seems to be quite a lively debate on the issue)
     
  11. I agree, there are no grades of Britishness. You are, or you aren't.

    I never understood the whole Afro-American thing either. All Americans are immigrants, so labelling some as Afro-Americans, and others as simply American, doesn't make sense.

    As for the Dame Kelly issue, the BNP could take a few pages from her book.

    Service to her country and its armed forces, honoured by HM The Queen, represented the UK in sport, I think that meets a "British concept" of identity.

    What filth the BNP are.
     
  12. Hopefully.
     
  13. Who fecking cares what some evil national socialist says; if anyone, black, white, brown or yellow, subscribes to British values and contributes emotionally, physically or financially to this realm they Are British.
     
  14. The gracious lady Kelly may be mostly of this country, but not of this bus. I believe Mr Brons has a 'thing' about that, too; I wish he'd elaborated.
     
  15. Where does the red-white-and-blue party stand on the issue of Gurkha citizenship?
