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. live on sky news now

    no link yet
  2. police report responding to a verbal threat as plane had begun to taxi to runway..... que new mas security panic at all uk airports within hours.

    sky news's martin brunt say passengers heard two passengers makig verbal threat... what ever that is?

    looks like folks are getting real jumpy!
  3. More Henno Garvey Walts!
  4. Great 8O and I'm flying to the states next week ... it's going to take me hours just to check in, as they'll be tightening security even more now!
  5. it seems like it was only a suspected verbal threat on taxi to runway so please expect to chained and gagged upon boarding your kite!

    shy news has some expert of a passenger on the phone live on the aircraft now, hes giving his honest critique of how the police have done !

    shakes head! :?

  7. Gremlin

    Gremlin LE Good Egg (charities)

    Well that explains it. Everybody knows that two drunk Brits are far more dangerous than one half baked Nigerian.

    Any idea what the destination was?
  8. Then hopefully the Airline will be billed for all the costs, as they are responsible for refusing boarding to anyone who's pissed.

    They can then try suing the two drunken pricks.
  9. and that gentlemen is the Dilemna. Someone makes a comment thats taken the wrong way or catches a snippet of information out of context - and the apparatus starts to roll. Do we react or not - if not then who is responsible if it goes bang. Terrorists don`t necessarily need bombs to cause disruption and terror or to make the Headlines. Imagine if you had several of theses "incidents" synchronised across the country at irregular intervals. The Security forces would soon be at the end of their tether and the press would have a field day.
