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. Tony Blair could carry on for another three years now that he has been given a "fresh calling" to resolve Europe's crisis, his old ally Peter Mandelson claimed last night.

    Mr Mandelson said the French and Dutch rejection of the European Union constitution handed Mr Blair another chance to secure his legacy as Prime Minister.

    ...

    "What he's got to do is help other member states and heads of government come to terms with what's happened, understand, realise how Europe's got to move to a different place if it's going to overcome that malaise ... that exists amongst the public," Mr Mandelson told today's ITV1's Jonathan Dimbleby programme.

  2. malaise n.
    1 A vague feeling of bodily discomfort, as at the beginning of an illness.
    2 A general sense of depression or unease

    I'd venture to suggest that the anti feeling toward the EU is stronger than mere malaise!
     
  3. The arrsehole makes himself popular once more amongst this European colleagues. Watch the British rebate come under more sustained attack.

    Bliar will be out by the year's end. I think the G8 protests will be the most visible sign of a period of disenchantment and parliamentary conflict.
     
  4. A "fresh calling" "Mr Blair another chance to secure his legacy as Prime Minister."

    Ah now Tone's hearing the vioces that will make him great.
