Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Following the riots in 2005, it appears Paris is suffering some unrest again.

    And let's face it, it's not often you hear of pillaging in Europe these days. Unless you discount Catterick on a Friday night.

    More to come? Or, will the French authorities bring about some of that renouned discipline and control that we see, whenever their farmers are blockading ports, etc.? :)

  2. wine and cheese shortage again? oh dear, where will the madness end :twisted: :roll:
  3. Just what the French need a return to the core values of 1788.

    They need to learn to work for a living rather than live off socialist ideas and EU handouts...
  5. I can't help but feel a sneaking envy that the French populace are so often willing to take to the streets to oppose their government.
  6. Some might think themselves the modern 'sans coulottes'.

    Really they're all just old-fashioned 'sans pères'
  7. Could this be the reason they never fight outside French territory because they're saving all their strength for fighting in it?

    Bunch of onion selling surrender monkeys!
  8. I think you'll find its 'sans culottes', mon vieux.
  9. C'est un blond Flic - et pas d'erreur
  10. Most of the rioters involved in this trouble and the riots in 2005-and plenty of trouble in between-are unemployable immigrant youth living on endless welfare handouts.

    They live in estates avoided by most of French society and a high proportion of them have never worked and probably never will.

    After the troubles in 2005 the then interior minister Nicolas Sarkosy the interior minister described them as riff-raff.Probably a fair point.The French voters seemed to agree with him as he was subsequently elected as president.

    What is needed is a good dose of the CRS to put down these feral chavs with maximum force(tear gas,water cannon and taszer guns should do the trick) and point out if you don't like in France,you can f*** off elsewhere.
  11. Today's news:

    - Rioting in Paris.
    - Bears sh1tting in woods.
    - Pope practising Catholicism.
  12. They do work, they deal drugs.

    That's what they do anyway, but the CRS can't keep them in prison forever, they are released and start again. There is really no solution to this, it's the new reality we will have to live with.

  13. The trouble is that they may well f*** off over here.
  14. Perhaps the Singapore solution to drug dealing needs to be applied here.
  15. As well as the indonesian approach to masturbating and the Iranian approach to "saying something we don't really approve of".
