ARRSE... and BAFF... in Parliament Thu 26 Apr 07

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by hackle, Apr 26, 2007.

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. From today's House of Commons Debate on Defence of the UK. My bold.

    D.Y. (BAFF)

    Thanks Hackle, great stuff!


    Now we have proof that Lab MPs read us as well as Jurnos (or at least their researchers do!!)
     
  3. Agreed, thanks Hackle.

    Glad to see that MPs have time to surf the Net in the search for tips for their speeches.

    I wonder if Kevan Jones just stayed in the Current Affairs forum, or was there a peek into the Naafi Bar as well :wink:
     
  4. LOL, thanks Gremlin! I have not yet personally met Kevan Jones MP but I am confident that the wise words are his own, and that there are other members of the cross-party House of Commons Defence Committee who are increasingly aware of the British Armed Forces Federation.
     
  5. Superb work Hackle.

    And a well done to Kevan Jones for his speech.
     
  6. Cow

    Cow LE

    The more exposure the BAFF gets the better! Whats the next step? Airtime is good but is this being pushed by any more MPs?
