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. Mandarins oppose 'dangerous' civil service shake-up - Telegraph

    I sincerely hope this idea is binned. Humphreys may have their moments and maybe a more rigorous appraisal system is needed but this idea would be very bad news for the UK.

    The above happens far far too often. The point about the loss of a seamless transition is also valid.

    In particular, the Czech Defence Ministry has been riven by corruption scandals involving the political appointments... with the state of the British procurement system heavens forbid what would happen.

    Thoughts?
