    Pretty much, but in the context of having openly supported and enabled his aggression against Iran not that long before.

    The capability that he deployed against Kuwait was one that they had...

    Cuba - info, advice, must-see

    Really mixed feelings about it. On the one hand the end of the embargo is a great thing for Cubans, but all that comes from being a small, poor nation on the doorstep of America looms as well.

    It's very well established that April Glaspie, the U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, dropped a historic diplomatic bollock in the run up to the Kuwait invasion. It's not even a controversial statement, let...

    It is, and it's pretty accessible from the relevant areas. Allow time though in terms of your planning. When you get to Luton Airport Station, you can be 15-20 mins from Luton Airport depending on...

    And on the direct train line that connects to Cricklewood and Blackfriars.

    Bus from the airport to the station though.

    Indeed. And it's not just the "innocent until" thing. It's the casual cynicism that it breeds that's enormously corrosive.

    It's something that rugby has to get on top of, because doping destroyed...

    I think she's interesting, but I can't see a Mass. Left winger (at least by American standards) actually winning the nomination, to be honest.

    It's possible though. Hilary's Achilles heel with be...

    I've no problem with rigorous testing, but there's a point re: the systemic issue in terms of how this is discussed.

    The assumption (no doubt correct) that some players are doping has created an...

    London MRSC haven't announced plans as yet, unless I've missed them, so not sure whether the designated meeting places will be closer to the ground or the usual base in Blackfriars.

    Not that it isn't happening, but that it's not as endemic as some have suggested.

    I have no doubt that some players are doping.

    I have real doubts that whole squads and their medical staff are...

    I find it hard to credit the notion that there's some conspiracy of silence, to be honest. Armstrong was a tyrant who could put the fears on anyone and everyone around him.

    There's too many...

    It's too big a step to make a call on rugby philosophy when you look at how our back line has come together this year.

    It's notable, for instance, that Foley's move on the 12 front was to bring...

    Unfortunately so. You can't have a system where you need hundreds of millions of dollars to get elected and expect anything different, I fear.

    Our hope has to be that Sarries don't fill their allocation and sell a few...

    I think having Clermont back to back in December was a big blow, to be honest.

    You'd usually hope to get the French in Thomond early on and catch them cold, and then go there when we're at the...

    I love her voice, and she's a very strong song writer too. Have seen her live a fair few times, and it amazes me that she's not a massive star in England. If she was an Irish singer in Ireland she'd...
