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. Iain Dale was right, Purnell has just resigned.

    Might have to make that champagne.
     
  2. Sky are calling it open civil war....

    "things can only get better"...............
     
  3. Tis a day to remember.

    Cheers!!

    ITV;

    "The Civil War has begun"....

    Regicide?
     
  4. Yippppppppppppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    Brown is toast.
     
  5. On SKY news , on Euronews and on the USA news but nowt on BBC??

    Wonder why?

    OH on now , only 2 mins late for the site advertising 1 min news
     
  6. I honestly think old one eye will call an election rather than step down. Happy days, if it happens :D
     
  7. OB - Nick Robinson was all over this about five minutes ago. He didn't quite say 'Brown is a dead man walking', but he might as well have done...

    Appalling news. Brown is the greatest electoral asset that the Torys (and up here the SNP) have. We can only hope that Hattie Harperson steps up if Brown goes.
     
  10. James Purnell has stepped down from the cabinet and told Prime Minister Gordon Brown to "stand aside"

    In a letter to the Sun and the Times, the work and pensions secretary said he was not seeking the leadership but wanted to trigger a debate.

    Mr Purnell is the third cabinet member to announce in the past few days they are standing down from cabinet.

    Mr Brown is set to reshuffle his cabinet as he fights...

  11. Cyclops has to recognise hes had it now, surely?

    Sky stating Purnell said "Bowns continued leadership makes a Tory victory more,not less,likely" & has called for Brown to step down.
    Some party twonk on Sky news called Graham Allen getting grilled,talking about Brown resigning as quickly as tommorow & Labour hopeing Broon makes the right choice.
    Is it me or is Labour imploding?..

    I doubt it. He is more likely to take a Nelsonian approach; i.e.

    "I see no signal"

    Fresh news: it is definitely a backstabbing!

    Purnell informed Journalists before No 10 or Cabinet/Party colleagues.


    Oooh, what a naughty boy!
