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. Just caught this yesterday on one of the news channels last night :- British sports stars may have to wear EU flags on kits | Mail Online
    Apparently when some UKIP MEP's were complaining about it, other Euro MEP's suggested Britain should get out of the EU if they didn't like it!!
    Sounds like a bloody good excuse to tell them where to stick their corrupt unelected snouts, GET OUT NOW!!

  4. ahhh but we are not forced to have the european flag on number plates - well mine doesnt have one here in UK..and it didnt when I had a german reg car.
     
  5. Hmmm.... interesting idea. Take it a step or two further though, and we can have the Eurovision song contest over and done with in the space of five minutes every year.

    It's not all bad you know!

  7. I think now, unless you have a very old car, you have to have the EU flag on German reg cars.
     
  8. All aboard the European Outrage Bus!
