Gravy trains

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. These buggers don't seem to see overcrowding as a problem and never have punctuality problems, whilst reading a copy of the guardian the other day I came across a job advertised by Birmingham Council. Now anyone who has seen the public sector jobs advertised there will be used to the job titles but this one had me stumped...GBS LEP executive officer (35k). I looked it up and found that LEP means local economic partnerships, well I thought that these LEP's replaced regional development agencies on a volunteer basis so why the big salaries? is it the same people from the RDA's with their old jobs back?
  2. I couldn't find any gravy trains, but other forms of gravy transport are available -

  4. Usually if a local authority is advertising a position in the Guardian they already know who's got the job. They are just trying to make it look above board and show other authorities they can make up fancy titles as well.

    Have a big train instead; deltec.jpg

  7. They look far too much like tinned meatballs I used to be fed as a sprog.

    Fucking lovely with peas and chips though.
