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:

    It is expected that mr.Putin will be Russian PM soon. It would be logical to expect that mr. Brown would congratulate him personally by telephone.

    Why do you think mr.Brown apparently is unwilling to conversate with mr.Putin?
     
  2. Because Putin is too right wing and Brown too left?!
     
  3. because Putin threatened to cut off gas supplies to Scottish deep fat fryers?

    Because Brown will be out of office long before Putin, and wants to save an unnecessary telephone bill?
     
  5. Hmmm... I'm not sure that it is the cause but indeed mr.Putin is right politician - a defender of interests of big business while mr.Brown is essentially a socialist.

    Hahahahahaha! A socialist who privatises everything that moves, imposes a more stringent id card system than any other member of the European Identity Scheme, allows non-doms not to pay their share of tax? Have I slipped into a parallel universe, or is this a wah?
     
  7. Three parts to this answer.

    1. Broon hates Putin because the latter has betrayed the Revolution and Broon's hero Stalin in not maintaining the Gulags and paying for communist revolutions and assassinations in the wider part of the world like some of his predecesors.

    2. Broon hates Putin because the latter lowered the rate of income tax to 13%, massively simplified the tax system, reduced the number of state employees and as a result the country is experiencing one of the largest and most sustained economic booms in history, while at the same time massively increasing the tax income to the State allowing it to spend money on important things, like defence.

    3. Broon is unable to have a conversation with anyone, being a cúnt of the first distallation (and a myopic, cycloptic cúnt at that). Broon has manners that would shame a glaswegian herion addict's chav (or ned) biatchs. I wouldn't be surprised if his officials have made sure Putin never got put through as it could start a new war between the two countries.

    Question answered?
     
  8. Putin won a bet that Browns leadership when PM would drive the country into further deprevation, and broon cannot face him now

    Why should he? Are they mates or something? Why would Putin give a damn anyway? If he's that's desperate to hear Gordon's voice he can call London.

    I'm sure if there was a reason for them to converse, they would do so. It all sounds a bit of a non-story to me.
     
  10. Maybe Gordie is a worried that Vlad will take him fishing and tell him to take his shirt and vest off. Don't think that Gordies 'moobs' would look that good on the front page of The Sun!
     
  11. Because Brown is unfit to be PM of the most important nation on earth.
     
  12. Our Great And Glorious Leader wont speak with anyone less communist than he is, Putin is just a right wing lackey compared to OGAGL
     
  13. I cant quite put my finger on it...... but something tells me you dont quite like OGAGL do you?
     
  14. I can't see why Putin should want to call in the first place. What's Britain got that Russia wants?
     
  15. Why would they wish to talk to each other, one thinks he is Stalin; the other has Stalin's old job and acts like him...

    I sometimes think that all of this jet-set diplomacy has done more harm than good. These people see each other up close and realise exactly what sort of a t0sser is in post. Instead of a cagey, canny professional diplomat saying "Mmmm, Mr Brown (or Major, or Palmerston or Pitt) won't like this..." and the foreign leader then has to think very carefully about who he is pissing off...
