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. This is my list that I believe marks the decline in Britain in the mid/late 20th century.

  3. Two people on a bus in front of me had a whole conversation based around the exchange of the sentance "Like... it's like...SOOOOOOO.... obviously."

    Nope - no idea what they meant at all, and not entirely sure if it marks the decline of Britain due to the chimpish nature of the conversation, or a refinement of it due to the fact that they managed to talk for 20+ minutes using no more than eight or nine words each.

    How about:

    communism

    socialism

    facism

    All three widely used in the 20th Century and all contributed significantly to Britain's decline.
