I think I have been driven to the point (I didn't believe I would EVER say this) that G Spot training should be revived and ALL ratings (lads AND lasses) should undergo it! I just know that none of you G Spot types would have cried in your cell (or at least admitted it) - not after crying yourselves to sleep every night in the Annexe. I would have cried though - but then what do you expect from Dorothy! :wink:
It's perfectly fair to criticise Mr Bean. Not for being unattractive, though he obviously is - but for being a complete fecking numpty wimp who blubbed when they took his iPod (why the feck did he have an iPod on him on duty?), blubbed when they flicked the back of his neck, blubbed when they called him Mr Bean and asked Fat Faye for a big huggy-wuggy when they met up. Good job Johnny Arab didn't threaten to shoot his teddy bear or he would have completely folded. The man's a joke and a national embarrassment. And he still would be if he looked like Brad Pitt. :x
What the feck is that white thingy hanging down beside his lanyard? Is that part of modern pusser rig? 8O
I suppose when he returns to Cornwall he'll lose the nickname Lanky and gain Mr.Bean instead. Bless!
On the criticism front regarding his behaviour and admissions, I return to what I have said earlier, namely that whilst I think his bean spilling to the press was ill-advised, I also think the MOD should have done more to protect the 15 from media intrusion. I regret their original decision to display him at that press conference following their debrief and am concerned about the long-term psychological consequences for him, notwithstanding the opinions of those who think he will just bounce back from his ordeal.
Incidentally Curious, have you ever been in a similar situation? Bravado is very easy from the comfort of one's armchair, less so when actually confronted by officials acting on behalf of a government (Iran) with such an appauling human rights record.
