1. Three accidents? He’d be dead then too! I think you mean ‘two’ accidents. I thought his comment about not particularly liking England was rather gauche, although I believe what he added to that comment puts it into a more understandable context. A more experienced and mature person would probably have expressed himself better, but he is only 23 and no-one pretends he is the greatest intellect of the age, just your typical brave young British man; they may do incredibly stupid and immature things, but they have a tendency to come through when the country needs them, thank goodness.

  2. I saw that! It was genius! I was giggling so much. He’ll join the Taliban by the year out 🙂
