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. http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/hi/news/5037598.html

    Tell me, honestly, was that comment in anyway offensive? Has race become such an issue that it's not possible for a politician to even mention other races without having to apologise afterwards? What a completely lunatic state of affairs. Something needs to happen and soon, or this country's values are going to disappear up it's own arrse.

    Anyone for a revolution? Sign up here.
     
  2. Oh, that's so pathetic! They must be really scraping the barrel if they're having to attack the tories on this basis.
     
  3. more importantly, why mention race anyway...unless it is totally germane to the issue and therefore automatically justified. Good people are good people, bad people, bad, lazy et cetera so where is the grief - unless you are in the Race industry!

    In the RSA some time ago, an SADF officer told me they were given a racial equality exercise by a consultant, where they had to think of every one in the multi-racial group as "green". After the exercise doing the hot debrief the earnest consultant asked if there had been any problems.

    Witty (black incidentally) officer replies "No man, I just thought of everyone as green like you said. Some dark green, some light green..."

    This might come as a shock to some, but there is no such thing as "race" (apart from the human race). There are more genetic differences between my spaniels and my neighbours mongrels, than there are between me and an inuit.
     
  5. Its called smear tactics and any socialist worth his alt will jump on such comments and try to brand the Tories as racist :evil:

    To socialists any mention of immigration, race and colour is seen as racist. Its their way of trying to appease for our conial past and atone for the sins of our fathers by fetering "multi-culturism" on us :roll:

    Now, I for one am grateful for what a vast majority of immigrants have done to the UK but in no way am I racist, however any innocus remark and the left are more than willing to brand you racist :evil:

    Just as long as they don't try to 'blacken his name', or try to show that he is being 'sinister', or that he will be 'blacklisted' :D

  10. Got a stout brush in the cupboard. Give me a mo and ill sellotape a knife to the end. Anyone know the phone number of that Tony Martin fellow. I know he's got an axe to grind and morre importantly, he's got a shooter!

    Not when I'm quoting someone (P J O'Rourke before you ask).

    Shouldn't there be a question mark in your statement? illiterate buffoon.
     
  13. Well spotted.
    However, for future reference, don't split a sentence with a question mark. They have the same properties as a full stop. Therefore, 'illiterate' should start with a capital letter.
