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. CGS was due to be interviewed on the Andrew Marr Show on BBC1 on 19 Jul, but he didn't turn up. Why do arrsers think that might be?

  2. The Septics wouldn't lend him a helicopter?

    MsG
     
  3. Maybe Mandy ordered him to take a walk in the woods?
     
  4. Sorry - I've lost the option that said "Tin-foil hats on - he was gagged". Or was I gagged?

    Anyone know how to edit the poll options?

  5. The BBC is a creature of New Labour so I wouldn't discount a bit of collusion to keep him off air. Alternatively he may have withdrawn himself from the interview. If so that does not fit with the current pattern of his media campaign, so maybe he has received a commitment behind the scenes and is satisfied he has achieved his objective?

    /wishful thinking
     
  6. He forgot that he was on duty every Sunday until he retires? (Extras from Jock S) :lol:

    P-T

    Maybe Broon & co ordered him not to appear,if he did he'd be sacked.That's the low ball you'd expect from Broon & co.
     
  8. Wot e sed.
     
  9. Ditto...and Ditto
     
  10. He's probably dead in a car in rural Hampshire. Suicide a la Kelly.
     
  11. I think you'll find he was too busy writing Private Golden's latest testimonial.
     
  12. OK - is this why Bob 'porn tache' Ainsworth decided to extend an olive branch to CGS earlier this week?

    Well the BBC website is still reporting he going to turn up with a nice picture of him

    Off course they don't need his opinion
    Theres a nice collection of arm chair generals waiting to tell us how it should be done
    Why listen to a man whose spent the most part of his life in the Forces when a couple of Journo's can sort it for you ?

    Didn't some one once say (George Washington I think)
    I'm suprised I won the war since all the best generals seem to be newspaper editors
     
  14. He got shit-faced down the bop last night,swamped his trollies,banged out a couple of gobby junior ministers and then was sick down some horrors sweaty cleavage.Word has it he is on jankers until he retires.

    Either that or he found a better use of his sunday morning than talking to a jug eared NuLabour doormat.
