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. [c]telegraph
     
  2. Buddha be praised.

  3. Does make you wonder about the inelligence of some councillors, regarding think-first open-mouth later, but thank goodness nevertheless.
     
  4. I wonder if this about-face has anything to do with the genuine patriotism that the attacks on London have stirred up in the usually silent majority in Great Britain.
     
  5. Its just the same mindless drivel as that idiot who proposed "deferred success" on school exams instead of the psyche scarring word "fail".

    They all seem like those ideas you get when drunk, it seems reasonable in your own head but when you tell anyone else about it they look at you as if you have gone mad and then you realise that when you had this idea you were actually divorced from reality.

    That is the way a lot of "our" politicians brains seem to work.
     
  6. I can usually find fault with everything! :?

    But not these words, I'm lost as to which part he found objectionable.....

    Well? Any clues?

    Beebs
     
  7. The words are beautiful. Full stop. Naught to fault.
     
  8. Well if I really must :) From spending some time on other boards I would say that some people would object to the following words...

    God - not inclusive of Wiccans/bhuddists/etc
    Soverign- Republicans etc would be insulted
    Who are born of thee - What about those naturalized citizens not born here?
    The blood a hero sire hath spent/Still nerves a hero son - misogynist claptrap.

    And the whole tone of Empire/defeating enemies etc could upset those that we evil white people subjugated and of course it might upset the French.


    ***Disclaimer *** None of the above should be taken as being representive of the posters real view of the world and is posted purely for discussion purposes!*****
     
  9. Hallelujah!
     
  10. At least he had the good grace to apologise and admit that he fcuked up.

    Don't suppose there's much chance of getting anything similar from St Tony of Sedgefield?

    I won't hold my breath...
     
  11. There's precious little "hope" or "glory" in this nation since 5 May 2005.

    "Sailing" sounds better - ahh, the thought of emigrating! :twisted:
     
  12. He's admitted his mistake and he's agreed to go with "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy" now:)
     
  13. Land Of Hope and Glory. What a load of p1ss.

    I give you a proper song

    Oh Flower of Scotland

    When will we see your like again
    That fought and died for
    Your wee bit hill and glen

    And stood against him

    Proud Edward's army
    And sent him homeward
    To think again

    The hills are bare now

    And autumn leaves lie thick and still
    O'er land that is lost now

    Which those so dearly held

    That stood against him

    Proud Edward's army
    And sent him homeward
    To think again

    Those days are past now
    And in the past they must remain
    But we can still rise now
    And be the nation again

    That stood against him
    Proud Edward's army
    And sent him homeward
    To think again.


    Bring it on. Shamone muthrerfcuker. Hee Hee!
