Generals lobbying for arms firms

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Fireplace, Oct 14, 2012.

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. Generals for hire scandal as ex-military chiefs are 'filmed boasting they can help arms firms win huge defence deals' | Mail Online

    "In a statement Mr Hammond said: 'Equipment is procured in the interests of our armed forces and not in the interests of retired personnel. Former military officers have no influence over what MoD contracts are awarded."

    I just know ARRSERS will have several thousand words to offer over that quotation in light of inadequate and insufficient equipment in the combat zone.
     
  2. Done already
     
  3. A link, for those of us who missed it, perhaps?
     
  4. Aww when I seen the thread title I thought it was some Ex officer types trying to lobby the US goverment for new plastic arms for our dearly departed freind Abu Hamza
     
  5. Close, but they will be rubber instead of plastic. I hope one of them has an integral butt plug for the horrid bastard.
