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. I offer Amy "Winno" Winehouse for starters.

    I was going to nominate Gordon 'Cyclops' Brown, but he's not modern. He harks back to an age that never happened, never worked, but still believed it could with, or without the support of the people.

    He's very distasteful and British (only just).
  3. Tracey Emin.....nuff said!
  4. "Neu Labour"
    "Celeb culture"
  5. Chavs
  6. Modern.......Housing Solutions?
  7. Pete Docherty
    Amy Whorehouse
    Damien Hirst
    Imitation New York ghetto rap/rnb culture
    (The Need for) Armed Police
    "Celebrity" culture - especially "chefs"
    The entire cast of Eastenders
    Lenny fecking Henry
    Constant depracation of our country in the meedya
  8. work / family life balance ....

    it rarely does
  9. The culture of celebrity. (Or is that an oxymoron?)

  10. Let it out pyro, let it out - and breathe!

    This is fast going to beocme the "Grumpy Old Men (and Women)" thread!

    ...and another thing...
  11. The outpouring of "emotion" everytime someone snaps their fingernail
  12. "public enquiries"
  13. I have to agree with that one, being local to W-S-M I shock my head in disbelief when they interviewed a local hotellier who discribed the out pouring of grief over the pier burning down to be similar to the out pouring of grief when Diania died.

    FFS get a grip one was an inaminate object that loads of people went through and the other was a pier.
