Everyone vote no on the BBC poll on the link provided, lets see if Arrse power can swing it round to No?
Gggrnnnfffggghh! Current poll is:
Do you believe the allies have breached the convention on the methods and means of warfare (= you are all a bunch of devil worshipping, child-murdering meat eaters)?
Yes = 68.38%
No = 31.62%

Had to laugh at this bit.

Interrogation of Tim Collins by some lefty solicitor:

And I paraphrase...

Lawyer: "So, Mr Collins, I would like to draw your attention to the Abu Ghraib Prison scandal and some of the images we have seen... and I would particularly highlight the case of one of my clients, Mr Abu Mohammed, who had a broomstick inserted into his anus by American forces..."

Tim Collins totally deadpan and unflinching: "Unfortunately, I know know nothing of your client and his bottom."

Here's an extract from an email I recieved from a market research company

BBC-IRAQ

DATE: Wednesday 14th December
LOCATION: BBC, White City, W1
TIMES: 7pm
DURATION: 2 hours
INCENTIVE: £40

We are looking for muslim males/females to go to the BBC tomorrow (must be over
18 )

Must not have family members or any contact with the army & must not be a
member of a political party.

Here is a brief summary of what the programme is about:

BBC Newsnight to stage "The Allies on Trial"

In response to allegations about the allies\' conduct of war and
counter-insurgency in Iraq and the United States\' use of rendition and
allegations of torture in its "war on terror" BBC2\'s Newsnight is to stage a
special programme chaired by Jeremy Paxman to explore the question of whether
the allies are guilty of war crimes.

The programme will take the form of a trial, with advocates arguing the case for
the prosecution and defence with the help of witness testimony. The human rights
lawyer Clive Stafford Smith will lead the prosecution and barrister John Cooper
will argue for the defence.

If you are interested in watching this programme (you may be filmed) please
click on the link below and state your name, age and contact number:
Now I don't know about you, but I think this could be taken as the BBC seeking to 'load' the audience, and being willing to pay participants in order to do so.

Not that I'm suggesting that :wink:

I hope the proportion in the audience was in proportion to the make up of the UK population

The vote could be fiddled. It relies on a Cookie to prevent revoting. Remove cookie via the tools menu in your internet browser each time and you can vote early, vote often to your heart's content. Not that I'm suggesting that each arrse member should vote five times, or that any of the anti-war groups might do something similar.

Unless the BBC can demonstrate that they have the means to spot and stop multiple voting (which they may) then the poll can have no credibility at all. The 2200 odd people surveyed could be four Arrse users and an anti-war campaigner with a lot of spare time on his hands.

I think I can fit another 15 no votes in before I have to go back to work.

Just recveived an e-mail from my brother who is currently residing in a sandpit somewhere. He had several journos "embeded" (painfull thought that), whilst out on OP after giving them a thouroughly miserable night ensuring they got as wet and cold as the plt they complained to the CO. The Co's response was and I quote " If you dont like it F*** Off" and as my brother says "Top Bloke".

Just chatting about the rules of engagement for op herrick. you know sooner or sooner im sure that someone in the MOD will decide that the safest thing to do is not provide any ammo that way there is no chance that the MOD can be sued for actually shooting someone.

I'm sure they log IPs to stop flood voting.
