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. Been doing it since the Romans, much good that it did keeping the Scots out!

    It could be a great oppertunity to put the country back on it's feet.
    Get some Arrsers to man the desks and we're in.

    Only fit birds will be allowed in subject to an intensive strip search.
    All passengers arriving from abroad will be dealt with in the usual Arrse way.

    Americans will spend hours being reminded that they lost in Vietnam and will be deperate to jump back on the plane home.
    Eastern Europeans will be barred as we have enough on benifits already thank you.
    Germans and French will be taunted until they cry and go home - the rest of Europe don't count anyway.
    Argentinians will be reminded by our Airborne element they are a bunch of dago, wop, spick, hat losers.
    Celebrities will be led round the back and either shot through the head or buried alive.
    Civies will be told to **** off and die.

    The only people safe to come into the country will be fellow Arrses and her Majesty.

    The day will end in a mass brawl as someone calls some one else a Border Walt.

  6. The whole 'the army will cope' attitude will grate and continue with this govt.

    It is annoying but then I would happily do the borders because they need sorting. The boy may be slightly excessive (a good read mind) but the current situation is a joke !
  7. The UK has border controls?

    Gosh, there's me thinking they let every scrounging fcuker in.
  8. SCAB Labour!

  10. Will the RAF Reg and their guard dogs be mobilised as well?
  11. I agree with his decision making here. The only two options are those that can't say no; Her Maj's finest or Old Bill. The fact is the armed forces are the most adaptable government organisation there is. & given that one of the objectives of having an armed forces is to stop jonny foreigner crossing our borders in a hostile act you'd think the bosses would have a contingency for this.

  12. No, unfortunatley modern places like airports sadly have things like turnstiles, they can only do stuff like barriers up/down.

    They may well turn up and look through the windows to see what real soldiers do though.

    a great opportunity for a bit of smuggling; especially if the LANCS are on border duty
