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. article in Independent by Harold Pinter who yesterday won the Nobel Prize for Literature

    http://news.independent.co.uk/world/politics/article319540.ece

    His views about Iraqi war are contraversial but anyway it is a good food for discussion.

    I suppose that they see (at least one of them) a well educated, intelligent person who has the most noble intentions.
     
  2. They see what they want to see, nothing more!
    I don't generally agree with Pinter but he's pretty much on the ball here I think.
     
  3. I tbought you were quoting a review of one of his plays for a moment...
     
  4. Tosser, we dont ask politicians on their opinions of theatre
     
  5. I agree whole heartedly. When are these people going to learn that just because their name is up in lights it doesn't make them the Delphic Oracle and general fount of all knowledge? Of course he's entitled to an opinion - however there's no reason why it should be given any more attention than the ramblings of any other old git.
