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 don't think the protestors do it to 'impress'. These are principled folk, unlike the disgusting politicians who brought about this war.
  2. Mr.Straw is probably hidden dangerous commie. He has blamed Britain's imperial past for many of the modern political problems, including the Arab-Israeli conflict.

    Mr Straw blamed many territorial disputes on the illogical borders created by colonial powers. He mentioned Iraq, the region which was governed by Britain.

    "The odd lines for Iraq's borders were drawn by Brits," he said.

    Mr.Straw has blamed the English of oppressing the Scots, the Irish and the Welsh.

    30 years ago, Mr Straw used to be an outspoken left winger.

    So his intention to organise anti-war demonstration is logical.
  3. No. That's not logical at all. Politicians say things. Politicians do quite different things. And either at build-ups to elections or times when they need to wave a flag to show they haven't lost all their hard-fought 'principles', they say quite unusual things to garner votes from their 'minorities'. Straw is a past master at this sort of double standard, hypocrisy, two facedness - whatever you want to call it. The present Labour party is also littered with ex-Communists/Socialists. Jack Straw, John Reid, Peter Hain to name three prominent ones. However, they've ditched those beliefs, done ideological somersaults and been seduced by the overarching need to hold on to power
  4. But they haven't forgot their habits completely.
