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. Plans have been announced to allow Life so-called 'Peers' to renounce or resign their so-called 'peerages'.

    I believe that it follows that they may have their 'peerages' removed. At the fall of the government that gave them their so-called 'peerages'? If so, it would be good-bye to:

    Attenborough, Amos, Acton, Ahmed, Alli, Bach, Bassam, Battacharya, Blackstone, Birt, Bragg, Campbell-Savours, assorted Carters, three Davies's, Darzi, Desai, Drayson, Dubs, Falconer, Faulkner, Foster of Thamesbank , Malloch-Brown, Myners, Kinnock x 2, Scotland, Royal, 'Gorbals' Mick, and other assorted non-entities and most deserving of all - Mr. Mandelson.
