More panic-stirring and rabble-rousing

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. I suppose that "they" are now planning to rent flats and leave the gas on before striking a match, now that this one has been "foiled."

  2. Well, a 47kg calor gas refill costs L34.97, so if they've piked 10 of them, that's L349.70 for the gas alone... If you're on the dole, that's a lot of money.

    And apparently all units are on "full alert", whatever that means. Lemme guess - the Bikini state is still Black Special...

    Straws, politicians for the grasping at

    So it would be beyond the wit of the terrorrists to ring up Calor Gas and hire 10 x gas canisters for some apparently legitimate purpose, such as heating or cooking in a none-gas mains connected property or whatever?

    This on a par with suggesting that any stolen lorry could lead to a Bishopsgate-stylee attack.

    Story, tabloid scaremongering, New Labour for the use of.
  4. Just a little bit silly. VB, on the nail.
  5. In a related item:

    Police are searching for a thief who robs his victims by threatening them with a lighted match.

    They want to catch him before he strikes again.
