What a tw*t

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. Lifted from the Daily Mail online:-

    Controversial actor Rupert Everett has accused British soldiers risking their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan of being "whining wimps", it emerged today.
    The 49-year-old, whose father is a retired major and has relatives who earned Victoria Crosses, branded modern recruits as "pathetic" and claimed: “The whole point of being in the Army is wanting to get killed.”
    The gay star has just finished filming a portrait of the 19th Century soldier and adventurer Sir Richard Burton for the Channel 4 documentary The Victorian Sex Explorer.
    And comparing troops from now and then he said: “In Burton's day they were itching to get into the fray.
    “Now it is the opposite. They are always whining about the dangers of being killed. Oh my God, they are such wimps now!
    "The whole point of being in the Army is wanting to get killed, wanting to test yourself to the limits. Now you have to fly 15,000ft above the war zone to avoid getting hit.
    “I don't think there is any point in having wars if that's how you're going to behave. It's pathetic. All this whining!"
    And risking further fury from veterans, the actor who once worked as a rent boy after running away from boarding school at age 15, told the Sunday Telegraph: “The whole point of being in the Army is going to war and getting yourself blown up.
    “That and p***ing on prisoners. Yet we all get shocked by Abu Ghraib.
    "But that's war. If you don't like that side of it, don't do it. Of course soldiers are going to p*** on the first prisoners they take. It goes with the territory."
    Everett, whose most recent film rolls include parts in Stardust, St Trinian’s, and the voice of Prince Charming in Shrek, served one year in the Army Cadets while at the Catholic public school Ampleforth.
    But he added: “It wasn’t for me. I would have liked to have been in the Army in Burton’s time, because you could do more or less what you wanted.
    “They would give you four years to go off and explore. Now what do you get in the Army?
    “Bad helmets and Basra. Your guns don’t work and everyone hates you when you get back.”
    Last week the actor, who has a history of being loose-tongued, described Americans as "whiny victims" whose entire language is taken from Friends and Sex And The City.
    And he said we live in a repressed Victorian-style culture, obsessed with the "authority of what Posh is wearing".
    "All the problems we have now, they're all really about people not daring to stand up and say anything."
    And speaking about Americans, he said: "I'm totally off the States now. The reaction to 9/11 and then George Bush - really, they've got very blobby as a nation.
    "Now they are whiny victims whose language is entirely taken from two TV shows - Friends and Sex And The City - and there's nothing sexy about them any more.
    “And that kind of semi-blindness about the rest of the world, which was attractive when America was exciting, is really unattractive now.

  5. Perhaps a morale boosting visit to 3 Para Mortars would help him see the light of day :)
  6. What does he think we are, all pilots? What are the infantry doing? What f***ing planet is he on? Most of what he writes doesn't even qualify as twisting the truth - it doesn't even make sense.
  7. i don,t see him volunteering for a stint in the sandpit to show the boys how its done though.probably too busy shoving big bertha butt plugs and hamsters up his arsse,mincing faggot.
  8. Might just be me but, I wonder how far he would get if he were in the army of yester year............. buggered stupid and dead of sif!
    Then again if he cannot keep his shite opinion to himself he might still end up buggered stupid and dead of sif! wonker
  9. The point is that this fella's Moniker is RUPERT" FFS! Then we have the expression "controversial aktar", so he's got to find something of the sort to say.

    Being as Johnny Three-times (Travolta - but only for Italian speakers) and Domm Grooz have cornered the "utterly stupid religions" market, Rupert had to think up something "controversially" new. So he chose the British Army.

    In fact, anything to get his (largely forgotten, forgettable and unwanted) grid back onto at least the last page of the Grimsby Undertakers' Weekly.

    So he reckons his Da is/was a Maija and some of his rellies (at least two) won VCs. Remember, when he gave all these details, there was no internet and thus no way to prove him wrong. However, in the meantime, I'm sure there're more than enough highly adept ARRSErs who can research the information.

    So why don't we show him how thick squaddies are and expose him for the charlatan he is - that's if you're all not too busy risking your lives and whining about it. :D :D :D

  10. I sincerely hope this bastard gets the message after today's events in Afghanistan.
  11. I don't know.. I thought his comments about America were quite astute...and as for slavish devotion to following the fashion dictates of Posh..well.. I thought it was Paris Hilton and her types that got the attention over Beckham's designer rags...

    Of course, his comments about the Army was all cr*p, but what do you expect from a poofter actor who only gets to play the second banana and character parts in films because he can't act convincely enough to carry a film...
  12. He's just a complete tosser, so who really cares what this knob-gobbler says. He's a third rate actor trying to get attention for his pathetic career. :roll:

    Some might say that actors in the past knew when to shut the fukc up. Shame he's not a traditionalist in that area as well.

    He's has no idea and is just talking out of his over used, cavernous arrse!

    Anyway, he's bound to get AIDS and die soon... So get on with it "Woopert" you wnaker!

    Oh, I forgot to add. I'm fukcing outraged :twisted:
  13. Surely a little tongue in cheek ;)
  14. I hope he gets AIDS Now.............I second the rest!!
  15. It would appear he is "sorry" but I cant see where he actually said sorry or even appologised.
