The Wapping - Westminster war.

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. The disgruntled hacks have struck back to revenge the NOTW, as I predicted elsewhere. They can count the fall of Liam the brown hat Fox as a major victory.

    The ever so smug Cameron has lost one of his best thieves and yes men.

    But where will the Wapping axe fall next, how about a sweepstake?
  2. Huhne.
  3. Good choice, an ex journalist himself, his old colleagues are fairly pissed off with him. They are raking the speeding penalty points enquiry midden currently.

    Meanwhile within the junta George Osborne is apparently still sharpening his knife for Huhne after the may cabinet meeting debacle.

    Then there's the oil and gas industry, we should never forget our true masters, they don't want to be troubled by a few minor earth tremors shaking the rickety Bail hostel residents of Blackpool out of their subsidised beds before 11 oclock.

    Do you think he'll see Christmas in office?
  4. I wouldn't take too much credit for that Fox prediction. There was bound to be somebody brought low before too long, and it was the Guardian that did it anyway.

    Same bunch that did for the NOTW in the first place.
  5. Huhne's marital shenanigans put him in the spot light last year when he got caught shagging his political adviser. No surprise then that it could well be his ex-wife who eventually drops him in it over the speeding points scam:

    Miss Pryce, formerly chief economist in the Government’s Business Department who now works for a London consultancy, has held meetings with publishers over a tell-all book which will provide further details of exactly what arrangement was reached for the speeding penalty points. Unfortunately the former Mrs Huhne, won't be publishing the book until next year.
  6. Yes, but the shit clung to the whole of British journalism and the hacks have now got their backs up!

    It's a pity they didn't invest as much investigative journalism in Bliar and his gang of criminals, but then who was really in control of Blair?
