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 wondering if I've missed something important here. Simon Jenkins is on Newsnight claiming that as the UK is the safest it's ever been for some time, we don't need the armed forces. Has he missed the fact that situations change?
  2. Ah, I see plenty of past threads (thanks forum software) showing that he's a bit of a nutjob.

    He has indeed (lost the plot that is), but then the wifey from the Times is not really put up a real argument of any substance.

    edited to add: she is seriously crap.
  4. And as he's in government at last he's bound to be a licker.
  5. Yes, she was blundering and offering nothing of any substance. Not good!

    I did enjoy Paxo ripping the shit out of striking French Unions, and strikes in general.
