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. Oh Dear Mr Blair, Sort your Treasury staff out, Read below:

    The Treasury has said it "deeply regrets" any offence caused by an e-mail mistakenly sent to journalists.
    The e-mail, sent by junior clerical officer Robbie Browse, was entitled "Advantage of being Chinese", under a heading of "this is brilliant!".

    It encouraged recipients to "try pulling the corners of your eyes as if you were Chinese" to decipher a message which read "no sex causes bad eyes".

    It might have 'offended' journalists? The only way to offend a journalist is to query his expence bill. Bit like offending a lawyer. These people lack the morale compass to be offended. What they can do is make a story out of nothing!
