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. Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 600 employees and has the following employee statistics?

    29 have been accused of spouse abuse
    7 have been arrested for fraud
    19 have been accused of writing bad cheques
    117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
    3 have done time for assault
    71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
    14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
    8 have been arrested for shoplifting
    21 are currently defendants in lawsuits
    84 have been arrested for drink driving in the last year

    Which organization is this?

    It's the 635 members of the House of Commons, the same group that cranks out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in line.

    True or False what does it matter? They are worth lampooning!
    Anyone ever thought how easy it would be to get rid of them all?
    Oliver Cromwell did it!
  2. Sounds like my Squadron to be honest..

    and STILL they give us Guns!!! :D :lol:
  3. *yawn*

    'fraid this is another of those internet myths....

    the same sort of statistics also do the rounds purporting to be the US politicians (cant remember whether upper or lower chamber over there).

    Although highly believable - it is untrue.

    EDIT: - adding links to Snopes Internet Myths
  4. Can't possible be true. The figures for fraud and spouse abuse alone must be far higher...

    Sitting members of the House of Lords nicked for lying on oath to a High Court Judge about their involvement in hookers and slush money?

    One I think. A Tory if memory serves?
