Has the Emperor been chatting to old Pa Broon?

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. Sympathetic_Reaction

    Sympathetic_Reaction LE Book Reviewer

  2. "But Mr Brown told the Guardian he was "not interested in gossip" and instead wanted to give his advice on preventing a future downturn like that of 2008."

    Why didn't he prevent that one then?
  3. He's just trying to say something intelligent/controversial to promote his book, which will probably be less successful than Blair's.
  4. So Browns cunning plan when the money has run out is to borrow and spend more?

    Mans a genius!
  5. Once again, the villain returns to the scene of the crime. I await Broon's rambling discourse on how to be a worse PM than Ramsay Macdonald with glee.
  6. Of course he's right, we can always sell our gold reserves..... oops someone already did at a record low :- Goldfinger Brown’s £2 billion blunder in the bullion market - Times Online That was as low as $256 an ounce this article shows the price had risen to $685 an ounce in 2007 it is now $1411 and still rising :- Gold Price
    He sold 400 tons at a loss to this country of $1155 an ounce! The man is an absolute moron almost criminally so! I wouldn't trust him to run an ice cream cart, never mind our countries economy!
    Listening to his advice on the economy is akin to listening Pol Pot on running a well run free democracy!!

  7. What's a loss of $20 Billion between friends?

    In Brown-o-nomics®, $20 Billion is small change.
  8. Suppose it would have sorted the MOD out until the countries economy gets back on track proper.
  9. What's the quote? 'As a dog returneth to his vomit: so a fool returneth to his folly'. Sounds very apt...
  10. True, but did not Brown infamously state it was his intention to 'take the armed forces down a peg or two'?

    About the only think the cnut kept his word on. We've gone from being 'the borrowers' to 'the beggars' on Browns watch.
  11. Has much imroved under Cameron?
  12. Already heavily discounted on Amazon.

    Now the blurb says: "Long admired for his grasp of economic issues, Brown's book will be a work of paramount interest during these uncertain financial times and is sure to attract intense media coverage. The book offers a unique perspective on the financial crisis as well as innovative ideas that will help create a sound economic future......"

  13. 'Married to a beard'

  14. Oh I so hope he reads these comments, however sadly the deluded idiot will probably think its praise, few men have lived to be so derided in their own lifetime!!
    Just out of interest when are all the party faithfull (Ashie, Whet etc) coming to sing his praises like the good little fellow travellers they are ?
  15. What a bugger it only lets you tick 15 of them
