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:


    I know some do not like tinyurl but the full url does not link properly. Stand on me - this is kosher link
  2. Conspiracy, conspiracy, conspiracy! Seems if you don't get the result you want you just write a complete load of bullshit! Notice he writes for the Guardian, well at least he won't have too many readers.
  3. Elvis has gone to the toilet. Throw enough poo at a fan and hope some will stick. I smell pinko lawyers looking to fill their grubby pockets.

    Interesting how the socialist lawyers are he ones who will do anything for money.
  5. There may very well be an amount of 'artistic license' applied to that article, but there are also elements of the truth. You can call PIL all the pinko commie f*ckers you like, but to be described by a High Court judge as 'an unreliable witness' is exceptional. There are a number of nervous people in the wings right now.

    I suppose the Military Police witness (albeit a rather senior one) being described as "unreliable" by a High Court judge is remarkable, but only because the Military Police very rarely give evidence in High Court!!

    Otherwise, business as normal :(

    Well that is fairly damning. Still I suppose it will ensure an OBE for Farmer (Sorry) Colonel Giles.
  8. They even managed to get Peterloo into the matter !
    Strange Left Wing Facts and Government Propaganda.
    I ask
    Have any of these people Served ?
    I do wonder how they would deal with rioters.
    "Now come on be good folk and go home Health & Safety does apply"
    As a young Tom I watched another Labour Government commit troops to a 40 ? year Confrontation and one of the first gov actions was to ban The Bayonet.
    As Cpl Jones said they don't like it Up Um.
    Never was a better way to clear the streets, Bayonet covered by Snipers.
  9. However if you read some of the comments the dear old lefty author isn't getting it all his own way!
  10. It's an article he appears to have robbed from the BBC and The Telegraph who were reporting on this last week I believe. I don't think the issue is the 'alleged offence' though as it reads like a load of tosh, but more the fact that there has been an attempt to stifle evidence, and not forgetting the Deputy Provost Marshal's appearance, which as has been pointed out on another thread, smears those who work for him with the same tar. Bit of a shame really, but the account of the female Captain as to the level of ignored requests for help, which GMP published, really doesn't help sustain an air of credibility. All the same though, this isn't a rank and file issue. It's a management one.
