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. Do you think that the right decision was made regarding England at the World Badmington Championships, to withdraw because of security fears. ---- The only country to do so. ---- Wise move or overeaction?
  2. good question. heres a better one: who gives a crap about badminton?
  3. It showed a total lack of backbone.
  4. newsflash: badminton players are not exactly known for their courage and fortitude. they spend all day whacking a shuttlecock (the name says it all) and prancing around. and one more time: NO ONE CARES!!!!
  5. Having said all that, if there was advice given by an agency 'in the know', which presented a credible threat, it would be a foolish thing to ignore it.
  6. If they felt that their safety and security was being taken for granted, then they were quite right to sack it.

    (I say this, not knowing the precautions that were in place)
  7. I watched news footage of this, and there were a lot of armed indians around, however terrorists 1 England Badmington 0......Mincers!
  8. Every other entrant managed to stay there even, presumably, the cheese-eating surrender monkeys.
  9. Snigger, shuttlecock, titter
