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. Well if the Scots increase their own taxes to support it, I'm not gonna moan
  2. Let me get this right. The MSPs vote against the cuts and that means they will happen anyway.

    And the point of a Scottish parliament is...?
  3. To deal with the considerable range of devolved matters. Defence is reserved to Westminster, so the Scottish Parliament has no right to take substantive decisions on it. But it seems to have been accepted that the Scottish Parliament can debate and take a vote to register the views of MSPs on non-devolved matters of great concern eg Iraq, and now the regiments.
  4. Would those in Cumbria please peek out and see if you can spot any persons sporting woad and heading South?
  5. There's only one woad in Cumbria & that's the M6.
    The rest are bloody cart-tracks & that's why there are no jobs here(even less when Sellafield closes) :x

    I'll go now.................
  6. :lol: :lol:
