    Default Brits fighting Brits

    Front page news from the Independent about Talibannies with Brum accents fighting our troops in the Stan.

    My opinion; a 5.56mm round is far cheaper than the truckloads of benefits they'd be entitled to if they were arrested and then flown home for tea and cakes on the taxpayer...
    Older and ...well, just older!!

    If you believe an Independent story I would suggest that you have far greater problems than the grasp of the English language.

    1) It's not spelling, it's grammar.
    2) OK, it mustn't be true as it's in the Independent. Good, well thought out discussion point...

    1. You are the one trying to put a fact in a question, did you struggle in school?
    2. Posting an Independent story is not a discussion. If I post a link to the latest beano front pager that is not a discussion.

    Pedant.

    OK, here's one for you; According to sources, the troops in the stan are being shot at by Talibannies with West Brummy accents.

    Is anyone bothered by this or is everyone happy as long as their invoice is paid?
