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. BBC NEWS click here

  2. And how many others get nothing, because they cant afford expensive legal eagles?
  3. She had no chance of earning £5 let alone £5m with trout lips like that.

    Money to money, dust to dust

    The clue is here:

    The infection very nearly killed her and she was in taters for a year or so afterwards.

    As for the point about not affording lawyers, have you heard about "No win, No fee" ?
  5. Hopefully a precedent has now been set. The amount of soldiers currently exposed to these bugs is unacceptable as it is, without taking into account most of them won't get a penny.

    Not so.

    A new Homebase series was just about to be shot and there was talk about a MBB Christmas special.
  7. She would make a few bob on the Reeperbahn with lips like that mate! :D
  8. Many have died, does that not deserve the highest payout, or do you just accept the risk when you go to hospital, and consider a secondary infection unlucky?
  9. In the Daily Mail it is only £500k.
  10. You might be a fan, I certainly used to be before she bumped into that surgeon off the Simpsons but her career was not exactly on the up.

    Anyway, what is to stop her playing disabled parts.

    The point is that does she really deserve £5m? Five million english squiddlies?

    Well done to her legal team though.

    It wasn't £5m you lunatics, it was £500k! :D

    Huh, just checked again and it's gone up to £5m! It was £500k this morning. :?
  12. For goodness sake, if you go in for that sort of 'op' and it goes wrong tough. What price vanity ?

    She's had a difficult life, didn't a man drink Stella ?
  13. Someone best tell the Beeb! still quoting £5m.

    500k would be more like it.

    No, it was £5m mate.
  15. Josey..It wasn't the thick lip Op she went in for. She fell off a table shagging and injured something or other. (see link)
