G8 surprise

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. I've just been watching some news, showing a shot of the leaders at the G8 Summit. A panning shot showed a bloke I thought I recognised. Then came a wide angle shot, and a quick head count showed 9 people. So I went to check, and I was right. Country Leader #9 was Herman Van Rompuy, President of the EU.

    Why is he there? He's not the leader of a country, so why is he included.

    I'm surprised UKIP isn't kicking up a fuss about this.
  2. That wiki page was helpful.
  3. Anyhow
    If it makes you feel better, from now on the G8 will be less important then the G20. It'll be just the BRIC's ect making decisions then, the old nasty continentals will be put in their place. :D
