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. Front cover of tomorrows paper shows that the Sun, after 12 years, is no longer supporting Labour.

    Not sure if they are endorsing Conservatives, but Brown just lost a significant chunk of his remaining media support.
  2. Hold the front page! Rat leaves sinking ship! Shock,Horror!
  3. The Sun !

    Is that the one with the TITs ?
  4. and the topless girls on Page 3, Jon!

  5. yep but no longer supporting the bigger tits
  6. Unlikely to be the headline Mr Brown would want.

  7. Let's face it, losing the support of the Sun isn't the worst thing that could happen..
  8. Fortunately it's still soft and absorbant.
  9. Jesus. Gordon is even Sieg Heiling.

    What a clown.
  10. "The Sun says...." at the bottom right. This is a bit like simple Simon says, but for simple people, who can't think for themselves therefore read the Sun to read (or guess from the pictures) what their opinion should be.

    The Sun, sensing a shift of public opinion from those with more than half a brain cell, decides to jump on the bandwagon in order to shift more paper.

    (Okay, and the Sun has tits, but so do French home catalogues in the shower section but I don't pick up white flag waving cheese eating policies from there...).

    The scariest thing about this is the state of British politics is such that losing the support of a cr@p almost illiterate rag is such a major blow to a political party.

    I suppose if Jeremy Kyle also withdraws his support the Labour Party will close up doors never to be heard of again. While that may sound good it is actually pathetic.
  12. That isn't a recent media development; John Major lost the support of the Sun in the mid-90s and never recovered, disastrously losing the subsequent election. Like it or not, the Sun has a circulation of >3million, and its editorial view will be important to a good chunk of the readership.

    And Page 3 is lovely! Whoever she is.

  13. Attempt

    One of the (many) problems with the Sun is, in an attempt to sell more papers to the recently lobomotised, they insist on sensationalising everything. Which comes back to the point made above.


    And as the kind of people who (usually) read the Sun ONLY read the Sun, they don't tend to get the balanced viewpoint, only whatever the mildly deranged editor of the day decides will sell more papers.


    And without meaning to be a snob about it, papers such as the Mail/Express are actually not much better. Dressing up mild xenophobia does not make it anything other than what it is.
  14. And her political thoughts of the day are a wonder in themselves.
  15. Great news, Murdoch wouldn't have switched sides if he wasn't certain of a Tory win.

    Still think Labour can win Ashie?

    Ha ha ha. Happy days, the end of the clowns in govt is finally coming to an end. Still time for another 1/2 million to hit the dole queue in true Labour fashion.

    Labour isn't working, hasn't worked and never will work. Bloody good at spending taxpayers money though.
