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. Cynical, but probably correct.

  2. There's probably some sort of particularly inappropriate (given thread subject) innuendo about her being welcome to fall on my sword anytime that I'd post around now, were I not so obviously PC.....

  3. Somehow I don't think that "think" and "could" are appropriate, she's about to find out that apologising for something you did only works when you admit EVERYTHING you did...

  4. Stewart was a new intake, with zero departmental experience.
    Now he has been through Defra, and the Defence Select Committee and is now in international development and there might be a sudden vacancy there...

  5. Second one this week and been summoned back from abroad to attend.

    I have a feeling this will be a rather short one-way conversation - tea/coffee/biccies not available!

  6. Neither has the new SofS for Defence, so a precedent has been set.

  7. There was no precedent THEN.
    Stewart is a talented man, but probably seen as a future leader.
    Also, he was a Remainer, so there might have been complaints from some.

  8. "Biggest" would have been more appropriate.

    Big is not necessarily better.

    Unless you are an aircraft carrier.

  10. Worth a fiver, you think?

  11. Dunno. The fact that the PM can be bounced into making weird appointments suggests that she is looking for demonstrated loyalty over capability.
    That and the need to balance the Remainer/ brexiter lobbies makes it hard to call.

  12. It's all a bit like trying to work out who is important by where they are standing ......
