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. Reuters story based on TCH's BBC interview yesterday. I wonder whether the fact we have no plans to send more troops for the elections means:

    1. No more troops will be needed.
    2. We dont really expect the elections to take place on Jan 30.
    3. It would be too politically embarrassing to deploy more troops so soon after announcing cuts, especially with the possibility of more riots soon in Kosovo.

    Includes a pic of TCH trying to talk his way out of a trip to the guardroom.

     
  2. Well we really have no more troops to send any where at present.......unless we start to clone....then we have an unlimited supply :roll:

    I love this incumbents governments attitude, trying to be World Statesmen on the cheap :evil:
