You mean Turquoise Mountain's dirty little games in Afghanistan.
Dr Noah Coburn, Shoshana Clark Coburn, Rory Stewart and probably half the black ops teams of usa & uk intelligence.
I can still remember the scandalised whispers, stwc never-ending moralistic outrage and maternal grandmother indignantly howling about the sordid activities being on par with the antics of Lord Byron.

Terribly indiscreet of the Telegraph, Daily Mail and Evening Standard to publish.

Thanks for sharing these articles. I was shocked that he stole another man’s Mrs.

An election would risk a Johnson majority though. The current situation, however ludicrous, at least prevents a hard Brexit.
Oh yea, let's not risk letting the will of the people actually happen. #Democracy

I disagree. One should not take another man’s wife.

Brexit needs to be triggered by October 31, so we can get the Labour Party into Downing Street.
Spot on, it needs to be triggered so I can vote labour again from a selfish POV

To be fair it does take two to tango, the idea he is completely to blame is silly just like the 'homewrecker ****' tag that get labelled on women who do the same thing.

The wife/husband are the ones who's made the commitment mate, not the single man/woman who get involved with them.

I agree but by the sound of if they’d broken up already. ...

I agree with you, marriage should be sacred but we live in a very fallen world . I’m merely pointing out that by today’s standards what he did appears to me to not be that bad. If we lived in a more spiritual society then yes certainly it is terrible. Perhaps I’m just cynical...

I agree that society is dying.

Yes, it takes two to tango. I blame the woman as well, but Stewart the mans’s friend. I think there had to be an element of loyalty on both sides.

Ah 2 labour brexiteers, interesting.

1: not that you have a plethora of choice but how can you justify supporting a party whose bulk of MPs and Membership are not only pro remain and would view you as morally suspect but also would take us back into the EU given half a chance?

2: When Corbyn croaks it, isn’t (and what it represents) dead as a movement? I can see a ‘centre-left’ ‘unity’ candidate like Lucy Powell or someone go full Blairite..

3: whilst I am sympathetic to Corbyn’s anti war policies and anti austerity, let’s be honest they haven’t got a hope in hell.

Some commentators think he is popular among the young and liberal electorate. As London is more liberal than the rest of the country, do you think he has a chance?
he is popular among young liberal voters.. as a tory. I mean, in the leadership race he did very well with liberal voters, but that was when he was standing in a field of only tories.

In the mayoral election it will be between him and khan, not to mention the green candidate and the lib dem caniddate. I simply can't see him beating khan to the liberal vote. Khan has done such a good job of walking the exact line that liberal london voters want him to walk. Hes said exactly the right things, hates the right people, supports the right poltiics etc.. and hes not a posh white boy, unlike Rory..

I guess he may struggle to beat Khan

1. I dont know about Burton, but I am not alone in supporting UK’s exit from the EU. Some of my friends want that to happen, but we want a decent deal. I agree that we are in the minority and other Labour members think we are closet Tories. I debated a Labour friend who wants to become an MP in the future and she accused me of propping up Johnson with my support of Brexit. I vehemently reject that crass accusation.

2. Blarite politics is small ‘c’ conservatism. Blair was a liar who disowned his Party IMHO to dine with the enemies. I was in favour of a unity candidate like Chuka Umunna, but he showed his disdain for the whole Party, which annoyed me.

3. That is the error that people like you make. They underestimate Corbyn because they live in the bubbles and engage with people like yourself. Tbe country is aching and in pain, we need radical and deep societal changes to years of unfairness and declining prosperity. People claimed that Theresa May would end Corbyn’s leadership, but then he secured 30 more seats. Don't underestimate Corbyn and his support.

I agree with you again, what's cracking on here.... we need to disagree stop talking sence

The greens are cannot be called a serious party with crazy policies that hold on inequality and security. How can you be serious when you think it should be legal to join a terrorist group,? What a bunch of clowns!
I ticked the rep box, but I don't agree with all of that - I think the Green Party, like other parties, attracts a mixed bag - there are some very clever people in it with clear thinking and also some total muppets.

Please desist in future from publicly agreeing with me as it brings my status down a notch or two. (joke)

It will make the London Mayor contest interesting. Not that I am going to vote for him, as I will vote Green.
