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. QUOTE
    A drunken British diplomat was arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport following a disturbance on board a flight, it was confirmed today.

    Defence attaché Colonel Peter Roberts spent Thursday night in the cells after police arrested him on board a plane from Bangkok, shortly after it touched down at Heathrow.

    The 50-year-old colonel, who is based in the Thai capital, has been bailed until March 3.
  2. Diplomat = Diplomatic Immunity = no arrest.

    Yet more top quality reporting from the press.
  3. Perhaps it was a british flight BB?
  4. His diplomatic immunity stopped as soon as the plane touched down in the UK, then he was just a plain old uK citizen and could be bounced just as much as any other drunken fool.
