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:

    New EU Taxes.

    " Last year he ordered the locks to be changed on a chamber in the Belgian parliament in order to prevent deputies holding a politically disruptive debate. According to Belgian newspaper De Morgen, van Rompuy told colleagues a few weeks ago that to achieve a top EU function you must "not ask for high office, but become a grey mouse, and offers will come."

    Poll - Should Britain Leave the EU = Yes 86.1% - No 12.3% - Dunno 1.7%


  2. So- He's a devious, colourless eurocrat with the charisma of a used teabag.

    He's not a lying, slippery, sanctimonious little weasel called Blair.

    He's got my vote already.
  3. "Being the grey mouse" - worked for him on selection!
  4. Vote? How did you get a vote on the matter?
    The rest of us aren't allowed.....

    This is the new europe mate, the public don't need to vote on such things. It has been proven they get the answer wrong so they no longer get the option.
  5. I don't hold a brief for Ken Livingstone but to quote from the title of one his books "If voting changed anything,they'd abolish it"-Now we know what he meant,don't we? :x

    I thought this would be a thread about El Presidente, the French saltless Gourmet butter. You cannot imagine my disappointment.

    Nor my terrible revenge.
  7. When will our people wake-up to the fact the EU's goal is the destruction of our nation? That is what this is all about.
  8. Ours in particular or nations in general?
  9. Yes of course it's so logical when you look it like that.

    All those pesky continental's fought a huge bloody war, the French, Dutch Belgians, Dane's, Polish Czechs took an early round pasting, before the Germans and Italians ect took a dive.
    Fast forward to the TOR where they all planned a huge cunningly concealed plan that would take close to a century to pan out (also they planned for the Central and Eastern European's to be on the other side of the wall, to distract the British while the worked) so they beavered away year after year, even managing the quite brilliant stunt of getting the UK to join the organisation that was secretly planning on destroying it :twisted: untill that glorious Summer Day sometime in the future (the Germans know the exact date, crafty Bastar.ds) when El Presidente Blair decapitates the Queen(or King) on the steps of the renamed "people's hall of the representatives"....huzzah

    I think you put slightly too much emphasis on the UK's importance (important as she is) in the greater scheme of things.....with all due respect.
  10. I thought it was about a speciality flatulence-promoting cheese product. Not much different from the EU and its' yeasty gasbags, but greatly more satisfying. And far less costly.
  11. Talk about a loss of self-confidence...

    That's New Labour Socialism for you, I suppose.
