Pithy review and match report to follow, if I don't drink too much. Think Mullet, but with panache, and a southern sensibility (no Smiths references likely).

Best episode yet? Really enjoyed it. Considine is a nasty fecker.

An grammatically correct English sentence with 5 'and's in a row?
at 19:02 19 May 2016

Geezer owns a pub called "The Rose and Crown", and employs someone to put lettering to that end up on the outside.

But he wasn't happy, because there was too much space between rose and and and and and crown.

Whether or not it's a wind up is immaterial, it's absolutely brilliant isn't it?

Did your read that Atlantic piece on ISIS? I only recently realised it is a little out of date.

Nevertheless it is a great read and it seems some of the arguments regarding how to combat ISIS have since been heeded and with success.

As a break from my usually Historical reading, does anyone have any non-fiction book recommendations?

All it has to be is interesting - that is to say, surprising. Arguments or events or people of which I would not necessarily be aware.

Brief synopsis appreciated.

In my quest to attempt to understand more about the Middle East and ISIS
at 15:22 16 May 2016

I came across this lengthy article. It may be of interest to some on here, and I'd be intrigued if anyone has any views or knowledge which diverges from that which is offered.

There was a tune just now in the background and it's doing my head in, can't place it at all.

It's in a film, if that helps

Any literature on IS which you can recommend? I have just finished "ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror" by Michael Weiss and Hassan Hassan which was great but lacked the depth and insight into IS's religiosity.
