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. AS above - Jeremy Vine show.
  2. Freature about it in the Daily Wail too.

  4. If Vine stopped screaming at the guy, he might be able to make a point.
  5. Vine is a nob of the first order. Always has been
  6. Vine is a cnut and is trying to steer it away from the issue supposedly being discussed and make it a general debate on Tory spending cuts
  7. Unimpressed. Hoping for a reasoned debat about the roll/future of the T.A and the dangers the cuts pose to it. Instead we got Vine trying to pin a conservative on overall spending cuts......
  8. That report seems very inaccurate as PDT is unaffected. I don't like the cutbacks and think that savings could be better made from other budgets. But be accurate FFS!
  9. Seconded, bad reporting like this will back fire as people get defensive.
  10. Vine: "Why can't it be unpaid like the Salvation Army?" :roll:
  11. Where's Richard Holmes when you need him? :cry:
  12. what a cnut, and i was a big fan of his as well, untill now...
  13. When Matthew Bannister hosts it, in fact when ANYBODY stands in for Vine it is much worth listening to.
  14. A quick point from a fellow (non TA) reservist: If more of the training burden is being moved to OPTAG, and people do less training before mobilisation, there surely they'll be a higher rate of people getting binned due to time limits and the lack of remedial training?

    Another opportunity missed. A collection of half truths and rumours that show that the "sources" that they quote clearly don't know what is really going on.
