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:

    I wonder what's so different in Poland that he felt he had to resign, rather than fight the politicos in the press?
  2. Maybe he reached his limit when the defence minister starts telling the press that he said things which he didn't.

    Edit: not knowing how the strings between government and military go in Poland, perhaps he was made to jump before he was pushed.
  3. This almost exactly mirrors our own situation, it's uncanny.
  4. But at least our generals are well supplied with vowels.
  5. Thats about the only thing I admire in BBC newsreaders: imagine having that name shoved in front of you just before the lunchtime bulletin....
