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. Violent Student Protest 'Kettled' By Police

    Students have smashed up a police van in central London and there have been sporadic skirmishes in another violent demonstration against student fees.

    Thousands gathered in and around Whitehall and Trafalgar Square to protest against the hike in university fees and the planned cutting of the education maintenance allowance (EMA).
    Students are also holding rallies across the country, including in Bristol, Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester, Cambridge and Brighton.
    They have been largely peaceful, although four arrests have been made in Manchester, four in Bristol and one in Brighton.
    The Metropolitan Police has said eight arrests have been made in the capital.
  2. Is the search function broken?

  4. NAAFI?
    silly me!

    its all those french students we imported passing on their national hobbies
  6. Where else, this is ARRSE after all. Just makes the standard of reply a little less highbrow and more fun. :) Good links though, cheers for them.
  7. Speaking as an ex "Buttons in twos" type.
    Well really. Standards!
  8. The generally accepted reply is "Nice one Trigger"
  9. How ever did we manage 13 years of Neue Arbeit's creeping socialism & authoritarianism without resorting to smashing the place up?

    Answers on a postage stamp to the NUS please.

    is it because they cant afford drugs anymore I wonder?
  11. 'Students' - unemployed and unemployable, semi-literate and semi-numerate little shits more like.

    'The grinning spiv Blair' thought 'I'll send EVERYONE to 'uni' - that'll win a vote or two'. So millions of thick chav-like under things, scampered off to 'uni', at my expense, to learn fvck all! To 'earn' degrees that are of less worth than the paper and printing ink that they are exhibited with. These unfortunates, unable to read, write, calculate or think - thanks to the Blair/Brown Terror of 'everyone is equal - are now: UNEMPLOYABLE, REMAIN SEMI-LITERATE; REMAIN SEMI-NUMERATE and MIRED IN DEBT and the DOLE.

    Thanks Blair you multi-millionaire piece of excrement!!
  13. A lot of degrees are a waste of time. Sure, if there's a specific career you want, like Aeronautical Engineering or Astrophysics or some other time consuming specialist milarky, then great - by all means go to Uni.

    But photography? Art history? ART?! And other subjects of a similar kind - just no. Waste of time and money.

    I'm only 20, and chose not to go to Uni after having finished my A Levels because I was already pretty good with computers and felt I'd much rather get in to a job where I can learn without living on Tesco Value baked beans and a mouldy bit of bread.

    Not one of my friends who have finished their degrees have gone on to do something even slightly related to what they did at university. Tell a lie, one of them did a veterinary course (which required like 4 As at A Level to get on to) and is now earning a lot of money feeling race-horse testicles.

    But again, he did a worthwhile degree.

    One of the students on the news made a comment saying "students have been oppressed for a long time" or words to that effect and I nearly spat my drink all over the coffee table. Oppressed?! How in any way have they been oppressed?!

    Rage! At people that are supposed to be mature and independent, off at uni etc.
