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. Perusing the fascinating National Statistics database while glued to the sofa today, these three gems were thrown up:

    Of the ten local authorities with the highest male suicide rates, six were in Wales, the North West and the North East. The highest rate for men was in Blackpool. At 39.1 deaths per 100,000 population this was over twice the average rate for England and Wales of 17.6.

    Of the ten local authorities with the highest alcohol-related death rates for males, five were in the North West, with the highest in Blackpool. The rate there was 43.9 deaths per 100,000 population, almost three times the national average.

    Residents of Blackpool are 100% more likely to watch Trisha and live near MDN :D
  2. My dads from Blackpool! Nah its a shit hole, it also has the highest under 16 pregnancy rate in Europe.
  3. Can this also be attributed to MDN? 8O

  4. Not unless the under 16s can get preggers by back door frotting alone. I'll bet most of the sprogs in Blackpool have a brummy or Leeds accent and look like the cast of Bilko.
  5. Nah surely thats Burton....
  6. must be a lie, Doncaster has always been proud of that title.

    theres even a plaque on the mansion house!!
