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. Why do they have so much holiday? Is there any particular reason for it or are they just all lazy gits?
  2. Don't complain, while they are on holiday they are not busy making up new laws to further restict our freedom.
  3. No, but it seems that Brussels never stops.
  4. if they had more time at work they'd only cause more trouble :twisted:
  5. Because London keeps getting attacked, they have decided it is too dangerous to work and so have run away to country retreats for safety (far safer now hunting has been banned GRRRRRRRR).

    By the way, we all have to stay as we are not as important.

    The hilarity is that they are considering coming in early to do the new anti-terror laws - what sacrifice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  6. Its a F--- Up - these are the same muppetts who send us of to fight an illegal(?) war whilst they take 80 days holiday.

    Any wonder the contry is in the state it is in with these high paid shirkers "sponging" from the tax payer (us).

    Get back to work and earn your pay - cut this 80 days to 40 days per year - all in favour say Aye!
  7. Why 40 days most people are lucky if they get 30 days why should our political class get this much time off, we pay them very well for a service, they should have similar terms and conditions to the rest of us why does parliament need a recess, why cant it work 365 days a year and have its members take holidays like the rest of us.

    I'd be happier if they had 365 days a year off.
  9. Politicians always feel they need to be seen to do something to justify their existance and the easiest thing for them to do is make new law and the easiest laws to make are those that ban or restrict things. Therefore the longer they are on holiday the less time they have to foist more restrictions on us.
    I actually believe that they should only work - or at least legislate- in alternate weeks to restrict their meddling the other week could be spent dealing with constituents problems. Perhaps the best solution would be to do away with the Scots, Welsh and NI parliaments and have just one set of MPs that sits in their national parliament for one week deciding local issues, have one week off in constituency and then sit for a week in Westminster for UK matters. Scots MPs would no longer be able to influenct purely English matters and vice-versa.
  10. unfortunalty I don't think ministers take 80 days off there still churning stuff out to bann
    and more laws to bann stuff.
    rather than getting a few more coppers around where anti social behaviour is happening if theres a copper about 90 per cent of gits won,t do anything
