Lib Dem Draft Dodger

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. One of Charles Kennedy's aides has declined to be mobilised on the grounds that as a councillor for Harrow he cannot be spared.

    Given that I think numerous MPs in the last war served in the Forces & they are more "important" than mere councillors.  I also understand that there is at least one member of the House of Lords who has been mobilised - a former Opposition Front Bench Spokesman for Defence.
     
  2. Tosser.

    I have passed this on to someone who can have a word in his ear, to get the real reason. It's a pathetic excuse. Most councillors have shadows, and bloody good case officers. If anything he might have got dispensation for a mobile/comms. Any idea what his branch is?
     
  3. I wonder what Paddy Pantsdown would say about that?
    He would probably take him round the back with a series 3 starting handle...!!!
     
  4. Paddy would frown

    I don't think CK would be too chuffed either. The Party line is anti-war not anti-troops, and certainly, it would have given LibDems a lot of ammunition to shoot back at Bluppet regarding provision for troops etc, especially in this guy's role specialisation

    I hope this individual reconsiders.

    G3 , is there a link to this somewhere? Me local LibDemmer wants to see it :)

    addendum -Link seen - http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2003101882,00.html

    Mind you, that other story is downright f-ing scary
