Clywd in Basra, & Return of the "Argyll and Souther

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by hackle, Feb 1, 2005.

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. Two amusing pieces from Simon Pia in today's Scotsman:

    Unfortunately even The Scotsman website is not entirely immune from this error, although they usually pick it up in time for the print edition. In their case it originates with some numpty in the Press Association, who apparently continues to believe that is the name of the present Regiment. Time to find that person and errr deal with them. :twisted:

    Today's Scotsman also carries another report from Gethin Chamberlain "with the Scots Guards outside Basra". More 'robust' words from the CO, Lt Col Harry Nickerson:
  2. Reading the 'Little RTFQ' thread last time I saw him Ann. Hope that helps.

    Is this the same Ann Clwyd that said Baghdad was 'lovely and peaceful, no explosions' when there were Arrse members reporting lumps of High street , buildings and cars landing all around them not 5 miles from her location?

    The same Ann reporting no explosions whilst reporters were trying to point out the pall of smoke nearby?

    Good old Ann , the Nelsonian touch. :evil:

    Obviously taking on the Comical Ali role when he said the Armericans were being defeated by the forces of Saddam while in the background was a nice view of the lead American tanks. One of the great moments of TV news history. Must be the air in Baghdad and how if affects polllies. :lol:
