Thou shalt installeth a great number of the eye of O'Lectron, saying unto thy neighbour 'I have ye on tape biotch, bring not thy suffering unto me!'

Thou shalt spake unto thy force of 'Rozzers' to defend ye holy claim upon the land of 'Chavee'. The wrath of 'Rozzer' shalt smite the interlopers in thine hallowed lands.

Thy shalt forsake all others as thy parents and their parents have forsaken one another and thee.

Thou must often snorteth of the coca leafeth, so as not to know thyself, but to rise on high, in thine own eye as god himself shall thee conceive!

Thou must looketh upon all about thee with utter contempt and disdain, for they are not of your tribe, neither inbred, nor of Sloan.

The Gospel According to St. Twigg

1. And lo, it came to pass that in the Land that is known as Surrey, a tribe of Squaddie-ites made camp by the Court that is Headley. These Squaddie-ites were sore afflicted, having suffered much smiting at the hands of the Aryana-ites and the Babylonians and wished for a place to rest until their wounds were mended. And when they made camp, their wives and their children and their oxen and their asses and all that was unto them came to be at their side to tend their brows.

2. But in the land that was known as Surrey there already lived a tribe that was known as the Ashtead-ites. And the Ashtead-ites looked upon the tribes of the Squaddie-ites and were sore afraid. “Woe unto the House of Ashtead!” they cried, “for it will be reduced in value! F*ck off, pikey, we don’t need your sort round here! I play golf with the Chief Constable.”

3. And the tribes of the Squaddie-ites were sore confused, as they had suffered their smiting in the service of the likes of the Ashtead-ites, and had been promised that they would be treated in the manner which was known as ‘fair’. The Arc of the Military Covenant promised them land in the Court that was Headley, on which they could rest their weary limbs.

4. And the Squaddie-ites sayeth unto the Ashtead-ites, “’Mon tae f*ck, big man. I jist want tae see ma weans while ma leg’s bein’ sewed back on. On whit you tight b*stards pay me they cannae afford a f*ckin’ 5-star hotel!”

5. And the Ashtead-ites waxed wroth and reply-eth, “Am I bovvered?! Does it look like I’m bovvered?!” and wrote unto their MP and even unto the Mail that is Daily.

6. And the Tribes of the Squaddie-ites rose up in their anger and made great promise of vengeance upon any of the House of Westminster who did not defend their Covenant.

Amen

And lo, it came to pass that on the four days before the Sabbath that select members of the tribe of Squaddie-ites did venture into that land of Ashtead to make representations to the local populace, in a hearts and minds kind of way, with assistance from the RoyBriLegs. These brave warriors, both past and present, did parley with members of the tribe of Ashtead-ites to gain their trust and to see if they could find it in their hearts to welcome the Squaddie-ites wounded in the service of the realm. Their on-going saga continues unto time immemorial.
(P.S. more tomorrow as the saga unfolds, sorry title changed slightly)

7. And the Children of Dannatt went forth unto the Aryanan-ites and the Babylonians and saith unto them, "Do your worst, it can't be as bad as what we get back home" even as they smote them most mightily. And the Babylonians and the Aryanan-ites did shaketh their heads in wonder.

8. And lo! the Lord in His wisdom did sent a great flood to punish the land for its breach of the Covenant. But the Ashtead-ites and their ilk did call upon the Children of Dannatt to bail them out yet again, saying, "POTL, what the f*ck is that?! We pay your wages, get your lazy arrses in there and shift that furniture. Watch out, that table cost more than you earn in a month!"

9. And the Children of Dannatt did labour most mightily, for that was what they always did. And they carried in their thoughts the sacred rite that was known as 'PVR'.

10. And it came to pass that the Ashtead-ites found they had pushed their luck once too often and were left to wallow in their own filth. And there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

At last finally after all these years, the dream has come true, the vision is complete, the “want it all, want it now” selfish b*stards have inherited the earth (or the home counties at least)……………..

Thou shalt not show harshness upon the tribe of Squaddy-ite upon their smiting of thy goodly possessions in time of floods, for they carry a heavy burden (your fcuking furniture) and nowest not why it doth drop so heavily to the ground, oft and again, till it be smashed to fcuk.

Whilst exiled from thy kingdom through God's justice, from the heavens, thy must oft return by ark to check thy chattels and land, for it may happenstance burn to the very ground in thine banishment, though in thy quest for the source of hell's destroying flames and brimstone, thy may only meet deafness and smirking silence.
 
#14
There came a Devilish scribe from a land beyond the sea, known unto herself as Claire of the Styleforum-ites, who did spake that which the Ashtead-ites in their hearts had spoken.

And so did Jahovah, with furious anger move amongst the land of the Arrse-ites, behold they did arise to smite the callous beast who had so foolishly tried in vein to lead astray the Styleforum-ites unto the path of the Ashtead-ites.

Otions For Change 8O
Biggest Defence Cuts ever :wink:


Edited to say

Flippancy aside,

The NIMBY of today derives from YUPPIE of the 80’s, bred to be selfish and “Put the Golden Dollar” before all else :x

Who was the Government of the day in the 80’s :?

The NIBMY's shall be smitten by the MIGHT of ARRSE/onia.

Espre de corp shall not bow to those who's wealth derived from sacrifices made by all those Remembered on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

CAARPS, are you Sven in disguise?


That Governemnt immediately doubled the living standards of Her Majesty's Armed Forces, provided equipment and openly supported HMF throughout it's tenure.

Yes, Yuppies were created, but they didn't look down in such a 'ghastly' (sic) manner, upon those who protect their freedoms.

And eventually halved (and some) the size of said forces 8O

Sorry to disappoint, not Sven (or any one else). Just someone who has served long enough under enough governments to form his own opinion.
Whether that be the ‘Party line’ of the majority or not.

Like I said, Who started the whole ball rolling with the biggest defence cuts in living memory :?

Oh and by the way IICR, YUPPIES looked down on any one who didn’t earn as many 1000K a year as themselves regardless of profession

My apologies CAARPS.

Firstly on the Sven insinuation.

Secondly, I'd 'forgotten' about the nightmare of Draw-Down.

You've reminded me how bitter I was when that was happening.

Rgds.

DISCO

Absolutely no need for apologies mate, life is all about differences of opinion. :D

I am no more of a fan of this government as any that has gone before in my working life (Politics is a profession and they all self serve each other).

The Falklands was (IMHO) one of the greatest achievements in military history, however, had the government of the day not given the wrong signals to the Argies by running the force down to a laughable size or withdrawing the Endeavour (I think that was the name), the Antarctic survey ship, there would have been no need.

Conversely, as perverse as it may seem, what would the current size of our home defence force be if we hadn’t been so active (and therefore in the public eye so much) in recent years. I really shudder to think :!: :!:

I just like to read all available information and then form my own opinions (with my working class, inner city, socialist slant of course :D :D ), that I am prepared to change when a more compelling argument or new evidence is available

Any way, I quite like Sven, at least his heart is in the right place 8O :D
