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:

    Perhaps not, but someone seems to be heading in the right direction:

    Michael Howard yesterday stepped up his guerrilla campaign against Labour by promising that a Conservative government would be prepared to scrap the Human Rights Act which he dubbed "Tony Blair's ... charter for chancers".,15803,1441397,00.html

  2. Unfortunately, it's probably all mouth and no trousers on this one. When we brought in this one we surrendered a veto over EU legislation in this area. If we remain in Europe (Howards avowed aim) then he won't be able to completely bin it, though he may be able to modify it in some way.
  3. I wouldn't trust a tory since Maggie Thatcher.

    The Rich get Richer and the Poor get Poorer, need I say more...
  4. And under a Labour Govt we've seen the workers get poorer and the idle get richer.
  5. Amen.

    The Conservatives simply aren't offering anything new.
  6. They are offering something to me.

    At the moment I'm in the farcical situation that I would be better off finacely if I was unemployed, and spongeing off society.

    However I don't really belive the conservatives are going to be better, but I ask my self, how can they be worse?

    Finaly I don't fully trust Blair, and I prefer some one who isn't so cosey with the EU and Bush. While Bush and Blair where togeather IT seemed the Specail realtionship was Blair would ask for something and do what bush told him to.
  7. We seem to hear an awful lot about human rights these days but not so much about social responsibilities. Maybe I'm getting old and crotchety (maybe?) but I find it very hard to get worked up about the dilution of the human rights of some scrote, who for example is demanding the human right to screw houses and cars and not be punished...
    Yours aye

  8. Sorry, but article in the paper the other week showed that under labour that is even more true.
