Defence in the manifestos

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. First up Labour at

    Labour manifesto

    "We are committed to a strong
    Navy based on the new aircraft
    carriers, an Air Force with two
    state-of-the-art fast-jet fleets as
    well as additional helicopters,
    transport planes and unmanned
    drones, and a strong, high-tech
    Army, vastly better equipped
    than it was in 1997."
  2. Manifestos - not worth the paper they are written on. In fact, almost an object lesson in what the party doesn't do if it comes to power...

    Arguably, more than any other election, look at the numbers.
  3. Indeed, I am "committed" to retiring in the Bahamas next year, though the financing might prove a little difficult...
  4. But the year after that, you'll defend it as an "aspiration".
  5. And the year after you can blame Thatcher for it not happening at all.
  6. I can and do blame thatcher. ;)
