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. Cameron Hires Obama Aide Ahead Of Election

    So this spinner of the people will help Cameroon get his sweaty feet under the table again.

    Methinks not, it will take an act of God and maybe even then the sacrifice of a Limp Dem MP to assure victory.

    So you too think that the great British public have such short memories that they will put aside the fact that Labour very nearly bankrupted Britain in the Nineties and Noughties?

  5. It just does not sit well with me that he enlists the help of septics to assist his ascent into another term of slicing and dicing the UK.

    Just sayin.....

  7. The banks did this, not Labour.

    The Tories where happy enough for the banks to take gargantuan risks and didn't say anything about it while while in opposition. No complaints when the Bank of England lost their Regulatory powers. No pleas for increased oversight of the casino banks. No mention of the gambling side of the banks being propped up by the domestic / high street side of the balance sheet. RBS, for example where 2-3 hours from running out of cash, and the collapse of the largest bank in the world would have caused meltdown in the UK economy.

    For the Tories to continually bleat "Its all Labour's fault!" at every opportunity is invidious, to say the least.

  8. The banks may well have done it but they were encouraged to do it by Gordon Brown, time and again he said that what they were doing was great and to keep up the good work. Never once did he urge caution or hint at tighter regulation.

    What would you do if your CFO kept telling you that?

    Read any of his Mansion House speeches, they're all online.

  9. Why not, Labour did the exact same thing for their tenure in power!
  10. Impressive that its the Tories managed to cause the banking problems when they'd been out of power for 13 years.

    Care to explain how?

  12. It may be invidious, but it is true. I cannot see anything positive Labour did in their last 13 odd years in power. All they did was lie, steal and make a mess of our country.
