German style Government?

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. Welcome to the club,Britain´s got itself the same Government make up that Germany has had for the last 40 years or so,As the voting between the Socialists and the Conservatives is so tight a Party that´s got about 10-15% of the Vote will be chosen to join them for a coalition and funnily enough the German Liberals have served in both Socialist and Conservatives Governments.
    The G Liberals are basically the Party of the middle class and tend to take on posts like the Foreign ministry or Finance and as long as you don´t let the smaller party take too much power it normally works out quite well.
    To be honest I´m just glad that Brown´s been kicked out,though It´ll be a long time before the UK´s back to financial stability;I´ll bet the Chav´s are crying into their Burberry handkerchiefs :twisted:

    German politics is about as interesting as Gordon Brown undergarments...
  3. If we are to have the type of German Government that I had in mind when reading the thread title the Chavs will be sent East for employment.

    However we will get shiny new motorways & the trains will run on time...

    Gets my vote :D
  5. Then you´ll be doing better than the Krauts,their train´s don´t run on time either and road tax goes to pay for the job-less,bit like Britain eh!

    German efficiency is a myth,well it is in Bavaria :p
  6. All seemed pretty efficient about seventy years ago & they had natty dress sense too ;)

    Besides, I diodn't think Bavarains thought of themselves as German?

    In my experience the trains run well 99% of the time.

    Autobahn network is overloaded more each year, and is well shagged or has too few lanes in many, many places....
  8. That's because the Bavarians are German the same way the paddies are Brits.

    The good burgers of Freistadt Bayern are "different" to the rest of the boxheads. The only place where you can see politicians having an early morning Breakfast TV discussion over litre steins of beer. Good drills but very odd. :)

    ..not if said beer is classified as food rather than an alcoholic beverage.... anything is better than their disgusting weisswurst :puker:
  10. Are we going to take over Europe?
  11. There's a bit more to it than that, although Angie is about as exciting as a kick in the slats. At least Guido adds a "gay" atmosphere to the situation.

    Sorry about that last comment, just couldn't resist.
  12. Heathen! Did a course in Oberammagau & stayed on for a week afterwards & lived on beer, pretzels, sauerkraut & sausages. Bloody lovely it was (except for anyone who had to share a confined space with me...)
  13. I lived in Oberammergau for 15 years and they´re great people ;but looking at why Germany really needs to save Greece just read this,It puts the `Boring Germans`in a different light,pity the Brits don´t spread the dosh around just as effectively;

  14. If we run ourselves as "badly" as Germany has run itself since the 1950's, that will do me very nicely.
  15. Yes untill you piss off the Yanks and Ivan who will then proceed to blow you to bit's....but it will be an entertaining couple of years :D
