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. How the masses will cheer to see yet another photo opp...sorry fact finding visit.


    "Gordon Brown is in Baghdad to gather facts that will inform decisions he needs to make about Iraq over the next couple of months," a British embassy spokeswoman said.

    Never been fully briefed on Iraq, have we?
  2. Christ, both of 'em? As if being mortared wasn't enough stress for the blokes.
  3. Has he been to visit Selly Oak yet?
  4. Self edited a stupid remark.

    Don't be so silly
  6. Was that at me or Bugly?
  7. Well something good *seems* to have come from this visit:

    Mod Oracle

    Now where is the catch..........
  8. Safety catch? Right in front of the trigger. Flick it to 'F' and wait til you see the white of his eyes...

    Oh, the catch on 3.6% rise? How about that its taxed giving you about 2.52% net. Oh, and that inflation is officially 2.7% (or whatever they picked out of there asses this month) and real inflation is way way WAY above that.
    Enjoy the extra can of warm coke.
  9. Having never served under Bliar and Brown, can I ask, do the boys just grin and bear it or are they a bit lippy and surly when confronted by the Scotch Thief?
