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. Honest, he really, really, really means it…

    "…Defence spending will rise again to avert the threat of fresh cuts to the Armed Forces, David Cameron has promised.…"

    No more defence cuts, says David Cameron - Telegraph

    Oh come on! Don't be so cynical!
  2. It's not like CMD has got any previous for lying out of his arse, is it?

    If only he would say a single thing that was not completely hollow...

  3. Yes about ****ing time, and absolutely nothing to do with the USA raising the issue of our use as an ally, as a militia.

  8. Ah, the promises of a government who knows they won't win the next election- gotta love 'em. Some might think that all this talk of referenda, and an orgy of Defence expenditure was being set up to embarrass future incumbents.

    Nothing will change in terms of funding for MoD until someone goes through the Treasury like a keen wind removing the lackwit bien pensants infesting it , few of whom has ever served in uniform or have friends and relatives doing so, and whose main article of faith is that money spent on Defence is simply pissed away on new tennis courts for the officers mess and private school education for their offspring.....and - breathe OMMMMMMMM :meditate:

    Not by their words, but by their deeds....

  10. "No" in the same sense as "no boots on ground"?

    In the 'land of Wombling free' is there any conservative representation? I also noticed you spelled it "cons", Freudian slip perhaps?

    I predict it will unfurl like a flag, a specific flag, a white flag, as we will have no Armed Forces to save any more as the Chancellor has sold them off to raise capital, and Dr Liam Fox has been moved back into Defence to oversee the 'New UK Armed Forces': a group of out of work actors with a job lot of Guards uniforms to parade at the Tourist sites in London.

    Or am I just being cynical?
  13. Don't forget Trident & the Red Arrows!

  15. He would combine a number of words together in such a way as to give the reader a hernia. The best way to replicate his point of view on anything is to drink a bottle of whisky and inject your eyeballs with botox.
