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. I really should stop looking at this website:

    ........These settlements, along with efficiency and effectiveness improvements, provide resources for:

    * the Home Office to lead more effectively the cross Government effort to reduce the risk of international terrorism in the UK;

    * delivering the new crime strategy with a stronger focus on serious violence and more freedom and flexibility for local partners and the frontline;

    * investment of over £11million per year by 2010-11 to establish a new National Fraud Strategic Authority, Lead Police Force and National Fraud Reporting Centre to strengthen our efforts in tackling fraud;

    * a robust approach to serious and violent offenders with 9,500 new prison places, of which 8,500 will be in place by 2012;

    * delivering the new alcohol strategy focusing on the groups which cause the most harm and a new drugs strategy to be published in April 2008 to improve prevention and treatment;

    * investment in neighbourhood policing to ensure it is embedded across the country, enabling forces to better respond to local concerns, increase intelligence and build up trust; and

    * managed migration, harnessing its benefits whilst further securing our borders with increased investment in a new e-Borders system to count people in and out of the country and implementation of a new points-based migration system that will ensure Britain gets the skilled migrants it needs for economic growth...........

    has the government only just thought of this???

    I have never heard so much wiffle.... outside of my last O group anyway
     
  3. New day, same old bullsh1t... :evil:
     
  4. These pearls of wisdom probably came from a government "think tank" and parts of it may even be implemented (albeit shoddily) within the next 1 to 2 decades :roll:
     
  5. I think most of there recommendations in the Pre-Budget Report came from a "think tank" locally known in Westminster as the Tory Party! The joys of "One Party Politics".
