East India Company

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by BromideBollocks, Jun 6, 2012.

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. Why doesn't Alan Sugar or Richard Branson set up a venture like the old East India Company, and buy all the opium that Afghanistan etc can produce ?
    Import the smack into the West and sell it to the pharmaceutical companies ?

    Seems like a win-win scenario to me.

    Fecking barrow boys aren't so clever are they ?
  2. Because swarthy/slit eyed looking men would then be unable to sell the end product to crackheads like your goodself.
  3. Here's hoping....
  4. Fucking crack is for losers. Whizz is the drug of champions.
  5. You aren't that clever, we grow opium Poppy's here in the UK
  6. You must have seen them! Little red paper ones. You wear them in November.

    Might just have something to do with the small fact that what you have suggested is a tad illegal? :)
  8. Aren't they from China?
  9. Another show stopper would be that having your own private armed forces is frowned upon now* so having your own John Company army of some 154,000 troops plus warships etc might be a bit of a problem.

    * well except Blackwater etal of course.
  10. My humble solution to the Afghan problem is as follows

    1/.Agent Orange on all the Poppy Fields (Agent Orange - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
    2/.Wait for starvation to set in (No Poppy, No Money for Doughnuts,---- Halal of course)
    3/.Good morning Mohammed , please put your quality Izhmash product on that big pile over there and collect your Daily Family Ration Pack from the nice man in the blue helmet. Then go home and stop being a fucking nuisance.
