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. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/vote_2005/frontpage/4447231.stm

    I can see why the electorate is pisssed off, can you blame them?????
     
  2. Question? Who read fully any party Manifesto? Page to page?

    And understood it?

    not me, If you do you need to get out a bit more...
     
  3. Lies, Lies and more lies :roll:

    Labour, Tory, Lib Dem and the rest......even my web address below :oops:
     
  4. I'm mail'in in MY vote from Coyoteville...

    'go lib' tory labour'!!!
     
  5. Dui-Lai, any party that uses colours that awful on it's website doesn't deserve to share the planet with the rest of us, let alone win an election. :D
     
  6. COLOURS 8O COLOURS 8O

    Are you a fecking woman :roll:

    Next you'll want us all to wear pink as it's non-aggresive :wink:
     
  7. Aggressive is fine. UKIP Vomit and phlegm all over my screen isn't. Although I doubt if either of the UKIP voters could afford a website designer.

    PS My 4 year old daughter has produced better work than that at playschool, shall I see if she can knock something up for you? :wink:
     
  8. Please do as we could do with the freebies :wink: ...after RKS left, we lost so much money :roll: ....all those tanning booths :wink:
     
  9. Politics is only interesting to those who are prepared to ask more than 'What do I get out of it?' Mrs LWM has told me on a number of occassions now that the majority of her colleagues in a National Company have absolutely no idea who to vote for in the Election because no one has bothered to explain it to them. Frightening? yes because this is not democracy its Government by Apathy.

    When I was a younger (by a bit) and I lived in London (which I now dont) we used to walk to Speakers Corner and listen to the various nutters spouting off; to be honest some of them were fantastic orators and they held a crowd; their political thought might well have been at odds with your own but they were at least engaging on a level you could appreciate.

    You might ask why so many of todays voters cant be bothered or are so uninformed, perhaps the Political Parties themselves might like to shoulder the blame to a certain degree. It is my humble suggestion that if there were a return to old fashioned campaining then there may well be a return of interest. IMHO there is far too much reliance on Television to get 'The Message' across, people get bored and turn over or, turn off. There is no personal engagement no opportunity to heckle or ask questions, I have not yet seen a canvasser, flyer or election poster here where I live so if I had no TV or were a student tuned constantly to MTV and re-runs of the Simpsons from whom am I to get my Political views?

    A friend has been studying as a mature student at a college, their tutor has progressivly fed them a socialist agenda, comments here and comments there, if politicians really want to excite the younger voters interest then they should be out there campaining not chasing a TV News editors deadline. Politics is being taught by teachers but not being explained by Politicians.
