Blood on a budget: our soldiers betrayed

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. in full,
  2. Good article, but will the 'tit in ten' take any notice?, I suspect not, because that will cost money.
  3. That's bollox. MOD will still pick and choose to give it's interviews to the media.

    If a news team went out to Camp Bastion or went out to Basra the MOD would allow them to chat too a CO or someone of that rank. Won't allow a Sapper or a PTE to tell his story of his accounts of his tour off duty to his local press, for a few extra pounds. Life of the line for £50 a day as well as doing his work whatever it may be specified. Whilst alot people of higher rank are getting paid 4,5,6,7 times as much in a secure camp and not fighting or in a danger zone. People get captured by Iran, sell there stories, to get some money, as they are getting paid shit, the MOD does them over for making money, considering for what they have been through.

    We all should sell our stories if we want, but just have to say "speaking on a personal level, and not sharing views of the army or regiment..etc" or words to that effect.
