Red Arrows

Discussion in 'The ARRSE Hole' started by Elect_Al, Nov 15, 2007.

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. Once again it seems that our country is no longer our own as the 'politically correct' who sit in judgement upon us attempt to negate all aspects of Britain that has made us Great Britain over the years

    Did you know that :-
    The world-famous Red Arrows have been banned from appearing at the 2012 London Olympics because they are deemed 'too British'.

    Organisers of the event say that the Arrows military background might be 'offensive' to other countries taking part in the Games. The display team have performed at more than 4000 events worldwide, but the Department of Culture, Media and Sport have deemed the display team 'too militaristically British'. Red Arrows pilots were said to be 'outraged', as they had hoped to put on a truly world class display for the Games, something which had never been seen before. Being axed from a British-based event for being 'too British' is an insult - the Arrows are a symbol of Britain.

    The Red Arrows have been excellent ambassadors for British overseas trade, as they display their British-built Hawk aircraft all over the world.

    The Arrows performed a short flypast in 2005 when the winning bid was announced, and their flypast at the Games was to have been truly spectacular.

    It is to be hoped that common sense prevails

    We must not stand idly by and let these idiots get away with it
