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. Is this the way HM Forces iwill be forced to go? Or do we take what the Independent calls the Traditionalist view?

    The Independent Article
  2. Probably neither. Both assume a large increase in additional funding. Go back and re-read the title and sub-title of that article.

    Now where's that £15bn going to come from???

    Neue Arbeit has a major problem with cash flow on both a personal and a government level.

    I particularly liked this paragraph...

    Strange how that piece of news was kept quiet. :x

    If he ditches the 2 new carriers, then he has fecked us over and the military will never regain its former standing in the world :thumbdown:
  4. Well, I've never been in the military (as my sig indicates) but, from my days as a management consultant, I can offer one thought gleaned in response to the excessive cost cutting zeal of the early '90's.. "No one ever downsized to greatness".

    Its a lesson for the Government perhaps?
