What price a Coup?

#1
Pure speculation............. :x

No end of New Labour Feck ups over the last 7 years and the increasing sidelineing of Parliament in favour of an unelected socialist elite in increments..................... :wink:

Kill them all. Let their gods decide!

I am glad you didn't state it had to be bloodless.
 
#3
Not a bad idea, why dont we have a coup it seems to work in banana republics? I propose a total coup, we take over EVERY thing in the name of HM Queen and Co, hand the reighns over to Her Maj, undo all the c o c k up's of Der Furher Blair (regarding army cuts and disbandments) in increase the forces tenfold :twisted:

face it apart from india can't really think of a former possesion that isn't worse off since we left the serrian leones were practicly begging to be ruled by us again. taking spam land back into rightful ownership might be a slight tricky but they are stuck in the sandpit :twisted:

Not nearly as much hassle as Agincourt, just send a couple of air cadets with BB guns to Calais and the frogs will surrender.
Of course, at the moment tony could go to uncle dubya and tell him that the french have WMDs and support islamic terrorism and he'll sort them out for us.

Allegedly Mountbatten was thinking of it during their last prescence in 1978. Maybe there's somebody else whom the 'people' believe will lead them to sanity and remove this elected dictatorship of tofu eaters 8O

Who would 'we' follow? How would we know it had started? Who is the sacrificial regiment such as 1 REP in 1960? :evil:

Forgive my ignorance or perhaps my relative youth, but who were 1 REP and what did they do or what was done to them that caused such unrest?
 
#15
Mountbatten and the coup against the Wilson government.
Ah sumthings never change.
Even I heard subalterns joking about the possibilities back then.
But cum on they tried it once, Ollli Cromwell and the major generals.

PS mind you kicking the frogs could swing it for moi.

1 REP were the Legion Regt that initially sorted out the Algerian Problem for France in the '50s and then when De Gaulle sold out the colonialists, they elected to protect the French settlers.................they had a remarkable effect on French politics and many beleive they formed the nucleus of the OAS but as a Regt were disbanded. 8)
 
#17
1st regt forieng paras, disbanded follwing De Gaules anouncement on the future of Algeria. Understand they mutined and then invited the rest of the frog conscript army to come up the hill and sort them out.
john
Whern't they wiped out three times in as many years in nam?
