  1. He did the honourable thing by resigning

    2.1%
  2. He had no choice, a big boy made him do it and ran away

    27.4%
  3. He's still a cnut

    70.5%

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. Since Blunktw@t has thrown the towel in, thoughts on his reasons.
     
  2. If he was a man of integrity, he would have tendered his resignation some time ago.

    Mind you, if he was a man of integrity, he wouldn't have been boffing someone else's wife :roll:

    He tried to hold on to power, when it was obvious that he had lost the confidence of the electorate.

    It was only when The Great Slimey Toad realised the threat that it wasn't going to go away, that Blindgit was forced to resign.
     
  3. We demand seppuku!!! lol
     
  4. My take on the situation (for what it's worth) the evidence against him was weighed (probably by Tony), and he was told to resign now before the result of the inquiry ploughs him into the dirt, or be ploughed into the dirt by the inquiry.

    Isn't it strange, though, that The Great Leader Himself has been very quiet over the last month, particularly throughout the Blind Pugh scandals??? Wouldn't want any of anyone else's mud to stick now, would we?
     
  5. Nice to see that 63% think he's still a cnut ! (when i voted)

    Berny, better get that pit ready :lol:
     
  6. I wonder if something else not entirely to his credit was about to be revealed. He seemed very sure of weathering the storm caused by the recent accusations...........
     
  7. He'll be back soon enough, education, health or god forbid... defence! Probably not before the election though, unless he can borrow a few spin doctors.
     

  8. Oh come on, tht's the second clunking hint of some additional Bonk-itt dirt on ARRSE, albeit not as dramatic as the one on another thread!

    Was he planning on bumping off hubby or something - a walk in the woods or an underpass crash!?! :wink:
     
  9. Another Mandelson type re-shuffle :twisted:

    No, I was thinking more of possible political irregularities. This govt likes to get its own way by any means be they fair or foul.

    Or maybe he quit because he's been getting the evil eye from some of his colleagues mentioned in his recent biography.

    Either way, it's not an honorable departure.
     
  11. He shouldn't have done what he did.
    He should have gone as soon as he did it.
    If not, he should have gone as soon as he was found out.
    All bent MPs should be sacked.
    That'll save a fortune & leave a large part of Westminster open for redevelopment(using Companies owned by bent ex MPS).
    Democracy my arrse. :x

    The man responsible for law and order fraudulently transfers a railway warrant to his bit of fluff.

    He should have been prosecuted for theft /deception/fraud/obtaining property by deception/false accounting....whatever our brave government could get to stick......


    oh sorry, he didn't pass a speed camera so that is alright then.
     
  13. just wish TCH would do the honourable thing as well, oh and Jack Straw and bLIAR.
    Sending Brits to their deaths for a pack of lies!! we got the oil right? so why is fuel getting more expensive?

    Just goes to show that our govt is corrupt to the core.

    he says he did nothing wrong - but left.

    T Bliar said he did nothing wrong - but did not stop him.

    Ergo - he did wrong.

    He should not only have been sacked as Home Secy but also as an MP. He abused his position, or allowed it to be abused. He is therefore not fit to sit in Parliament.

    Sack him. Let him stand again in his constituency. If they want him he is allowed to stay.

    If that had been one of the civil servants in the Home Office fiddling expenses by slipping a 1st class ticket to his bird then that person would have been sacked - no pension - no reference. Just because Blunkwit paid the money back (after being caught) shouldn't let him off the hook. IMHO.
     
  15. I agree with X-Inf, it is fraud and he should be punished, anyone else behaving in this manner would be punished wouldn't they?

    Sack him, remove his rights to a pension, and turf him in the Thames
