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. Sorry, but I can`t see anything to support. Bloke is being a pillock.

    I've just had a look at his blog and have concluded that he's the southern Peter Dow. Consequently I am failing mightily to give a toss or be suitably outraged.

    Sorry.
     
  3. He committed the crime for which he has lost his liberty, therefore he should do the time. I will not sign the petition.
     
  4. WW2 Veteran and "Fruitloop" are not mutually incompatable terms.

  5. Guilty as charged, I gaurantee his supposrters are not telling the whole truth.

    Cantankerous old **** obviously wound the judge up out of his tree and having a single cell does not solitary confinement make.

    Mind you I think contempt sentences like this are aerved in full.

    Still no signature from me, tho.
     
  6. Er, why is recording in court such a big deal?

    Isn't everything recorded anyway?

    And WHY is he in nick? Prison should be for those who need removing from society to keep the citizens safe... not for someone like this, 82 year old cantankerous sod or not.

    Waste of a prison space, waste of money.
     
  7. I've met this guy, trust me this is where he belongs he is a ****ing raving lunatic. In 2001 he was jailed for six years for going after
    a baliff with a chainsaw
     
  8. What relevance does his previous jail term have in his current incarcaration?

    If he is a raving lunatic is prison the best place for hiim?
     
  9. A veteran of a convoy of articulated lorries? Now I'm confused.
     
  10. Worse than the gas chambers , in Britain - NOW

    Yep, he's a nutcase. The High Court reckons the pokey is the best place for him too: link
     
  11. He's also been in asylums as well
     
  12. Newton Lodge MSU, from which he was discharged 5 years ago...

    And you've put a profile together to spread the word about what, exactly?

    I agree with chocolate frog (which I believe is a first). If he's not safe in the community he needs to be kept safe; the Big House in Leeds isn't the place.
