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. Cowen resigns as FF leader, but to remain as Taoiseach
    My bold, the nation of Ireland utters a nearly unanimous... "gobshite".
     
  2. Over at JOE.IE Brian Cowen and those who may replace him as Fianna Fáil leader
    Bookies suspended betting on Martin yesterday. He's the fecker that set up the HSE and banned fags in bars. It's amazing Brian Lenihan can be a contender, worst finance minister in the EU and that is saying something.
     
  3. BL is in no state to be running anything, he is currently battling cancer and he doesn't look well....plus he's shite at his job

    I am struck by the similarities between Cowen and a certain one eyed idiot in this country.

    - Firm grip on the party machine - check.
    - Crap at dealing with people - check
    - Thought he'd saved the banks - check
    - Clung on to power when everyone around him wished he's fall on his sword - check
    - Will be responsible for his party being out of power for the next 2 - 3 parliaments - check

  5. Where's Tom Kitt in all this? He has been mumbling about not contesting his seat in the next election, unless........
    As a former Chief Whip under Bertie, he must still have some clout in the party.

    His brother is a professional contact in Frankfurt....he seems like a decent chap.
     
  7. But on the plus side, he got rid of Gerry Adams from the UK politics scene, surely that must put his domestic problems into context
