Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  1. Didn't see this anywhere else:

    Part of Antarctica named 'Queen Elizabeth Land' as gift for Diamond Jubilee - Telegraph

    Should get the Argentines chuntering.
     
  2. Excellent!
     
  3. **** the Argies, Huzzah for Queen Elizabeth Land!!! Defence force to be filled with nails Penguins to prevent spic invasion.
     
  4. I don't suppose one is allowed to conduct oil and gas exploration on the Antarctic continent because of the danger to wildlife, etc. but it would be a massive thumb in the eye to the Argies if a rich field of oil and gas was found. Kirchner would be simply frothing at the mouth. :p :p :p

  7. Better than bloody coasters. Even better if there is oil there.
     
  8. True, but if you want a giggle the Grauniad's comment pages are predictably full of foam and bile.
     
  9. Placemats? Who the **** gave out PLACEMATS to Her Majesty for a Diamond Jubilee gift? :? :threaten: What minister thought that one up ought to be hung upside down in the Tower by his cock! :rmp::muhaha:

    the next step would be to declare it a tax haven then invite santa to relocate.
