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. Wishing our friends and neighbours all the very best as they gamble again in their political casino.

    "We are a great nation. Throughout its history, France has overcome the challenges it faced," he added. "Each time, the people have prevailed while remaining faithful to themselves." He added: "My mandate is to bring France back to justice, open up a new way in Europe, contribute to world peace and preserve the planet."


    Live now, but you'll itch all over if you watch the guard of honour. You've been warned!

  2. Have they decided on the room to sign the surrender to the Germans yet?

    I can't see this guy lasting his term.

  9. Ah but Carla will no longer wander the Élysée smoking a fag and stylishly buck nekid.
  10. No, he needs his original partner, Marie-Ségolène Royal, by his side for that to happen. She is worth 20 of him - wonder if he has paid her the four children's maintenance this month?

  11. Thank goodness he is off to see Angela shortly. It was a nightmare trying to get into work with the roads blocked, a 21 gun salute going off when I'm on the phone, barriers everywhere, police vehicles getting in the way of my run ...... and that helicopter is still buzzing overhead ...
  12. I hope the interprters repeat verbatim what's said at the opening meeting.

    Hollande: "I'm delighted to meet you Frau Merkel"

    Merkel: " Cut the crap Frenchie, do you want the shaft lubricated before I insert it, or are you man enough to take it dry!"

    Yeeoww Miaow!

    I look forward to more incisive commentary on the new presidente's manifold failures as a man, as a leader of men and as a grey Socialist in a grey suit from the depths of La France profonde over the coming months....:judge:

    the FNG - and his current squeeze....

    As long as Angular doesn't suggest scrapping the Common Agri-thieving Policy as an austerity measure he'll bumble along.

    It will be interesting to see whether the policy on French engagement in Afghanistan takes a violent swerve this side of Christmas.....<< bonhommes chez EUX, bonhommes chez EUX!>>

    ( hmmm.....on another point, what is French exposure to Spanish banks like at present ?)
  14. bloody nouveau
  15. The last time it was this tense (over Algeria in the 1960s), didn't the French think the Legion parachute bn was going to jump over Paris to save the republic or something ?
