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. New points-based immigration system begins

    Now waiting out to see if the girlfriend's going to be allowed to stay...
  2. Still let in the scumbags from the rest of Europe.

    Should of done this years ago.
  3. Wonder how many tax payer junckets to Oz (business class presumably) were undertaken and by how many during the 'close study of the Australian system'.
  4. It would be interesting to see how many of our own 'home grown' chavs, misfits and assorted arrseholes would actually reach the target number of points to make them eligable to stay here.

    Maybe we should test them and kick those that fail out. Preferably half way across the Channel.
  5. phrases including the words barn doors, horses and bolting come to mind.........
  6. What happens with the millions of dirty sponging scum that are already over here.

    Can't we just kill them?
  7. It will be simple. Take test, fail test, come anyway and claim asylum or just be an illegal. This is just more headline grabbing shoite.
  8. Very loosely. Australia's is nowhere near as expensive or off-putting and a great deal more accommodating of individual circumstances.

    Yet failed to take into account the single biggest source of visa applications, education and training. Linked to my first point, that makes what is our largest remaining successful primary industry far less competitive in the global market.

    i.e. they knew there was a way to milk more dosh out of everyone involved but couldn't justify it under the old system.
