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. http://www.themoscowtimes.com/stories/2006/03/21/044.html

    Just have seen it in the news on NTV (4th channel). Locals hopes that new Russian owners will bring jobs and prosperty.
     
  2. shall be interested to see how this works out as the main reason for them closing was due to British coal seems being smaller than those in the usa and china which lead to British coal being unprofitable on the open market

    Coal will be used on power-plant that will be built just near the coal mine. I suppose that the project would be profitable. Moreover it will boost energetic security of the UK.
     
  4. the money will paid to Russian companies, however if the Russians would like to stay on the good side of the communities they are based , perhaps a reasonable market rate is to be paid , also contribute to community projects wouldn't go wrong.
     
  5. Nah easier to explain. Its a geographic mistake by the Russians who heard it was in the Don valley.

    I'll get my coat.....
