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. Schadenfreude!

    A senior (and incompetent) copper falls on his sword! There is justice out there!

    From the BBC:

  2. If getting p*ssed up and asking women to get their jugs out is a resigning offence there are numerous organisations where there should be some fairly senior vacancies!! :D :D
  3. If they don't get you one way , they'll just find another eh Tom?

    Birchard + Tom Lloyd + Google
  4. Has he gone on holiday?

  5. Yes, he looks typical of the over-promoted bureaucrats who infest ACPO but at least he had the decency to go. Nowadays, especially if you are a Neu Arbeit cabinet minister, you have to be found with several decomposed bodies in your freezer before you think about falling on your sword.

    In these days where the fish is rotting ever quicker from the head, it's a rare thing to see somebody do this. Even if he should have gone during the Birchard enquiry.

    I'm not defending him to be obtuse, the inefficacy and political bias of current Chief Constables is another of my many obsessions. It's just symptomatic of how far down the pan standards in public life are going (hey, we are finally getting more European!) that Lloyd's actions are even noteworthy.

    Lastly from this Times article, it's interesting to note how his troops were so ready to stand up for their guv'nor:

    No love lost there then. A bit like the army, there seem to be two levels of disciplinary sanction: if this had been some twenty-five year service detective sergeant he'd have probably been up in front of a chief constable's board and sacked.

  6. Pity it wasn't that cnut, Brunstrom! :twisted:
