    My friendly invasion Many years ago, in fact it was 23rd July 1985 I was lounging in the sunshine in Southchurch Park in Southend it was a Sunday.

    US's missile attacks on Syria

    Yes I know Trump has his own dedicated thread but I thought this particular issue was worthy of attention. Were the missile attacks justified? Simple question. FWIW, i voted yes, although I'm fully aware that the Leader of the PLP and the Shadow Foreign Secretary thought the US should have...
  3. Air strikes in Syria

    The US have launched a missile attack on a Syrian air base. May and Fallon agree with this action, not sure about Corbyn. This is different to the standard attack on the ME as Syria has the backing of Russia and China so does have the possibility to escalate. After the WOMD lie in Iraq, I...

    S Korea Impeachment

    Had a great week in Korea, at 11am yesterday I was leaving a meeting no more than a couple of hundred yards away from the Blue House, where the President lives. The South Koreans are the friendliest people in the world and the food is fantastic but the impeachment ruling yesterday meant it was a...
  5. Flying

    Anyone feeling nervous of late about taking to the air? I know it's statistically the safest form of travel, but what with the latest EgyptAir (probable) disaster, and over the last few years the number of crashes/bombings/Russian-missile-strikes-pretending-to-be-Ukranian is really thinking that...

    Syria air strikes

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-34950778 Think this topic now deserves its own dedicated thread. Always been impressed by Mark Rylance -either on the stage or in front of the cameras. Good video here on which countries are actually bombing in Syria already.Must be getting fairly crowded in Syrian...

    Best moments - last 5 years

    Well, getting out of the bottom division proved to be harder than I thought it would be. Mind you, the club was in poor shape at the time of being relegated (May 2010) - large scale financial difficulties, a new manager and very few players on the books. There were fears of the club going out...

    The Nakid Truth

    Taken from: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Naked-Truth-CameronIs-he-the-worst-prime-minister-in-British-history/349274725156523 How close was David Cameron to having a week that was not a total disaster for himself or the government. I really thought he was going to make it by Thursday,But...

    Ireland declares war on France

    The French President is sitting in his office when his telephone rings. "Hallo, Mr. Sarkozy!" a heavily accented voice says. "This is Paddy down at the Hogshead Harp Pub in County Clare, Ireland. I am ringing to inform you that we are officially declaring war on you Frenchies!" "Well, Paddy,"...

    UFO's Part II

    Given the owners of this glorious site have withdrawn my right of reply in relation to the debate about UFO's, I feel I should add the following. Unidentified flying object (commonly abbreviated UFO) is a popular term for any seemingly aerial phenomenon that is not readily identified. Research...
  12. Russia: What are you playing at?

    On top of last weeks news story that Russia were to restart Cold War patrols across their bordering oceans, flying within 100 miles of US soil, This morning I read that a Russian Bomber, thought to be on a spy mission, was intercepted by 2 RAF fighters dangerously close to British Soil...
