Interesting indeed.

Now he's been convicted this is a legitimate topic for discussion, but try not to feed the media with too much speculation please.

Four mortgages on flats in Brighton?!?!? 8O

On a full screws wage as well, any extra income would have been welcome I think, if the charges are true then he will wish he got a part time job in McD's instead.

Also....Brighton? Teaching the general to salsa dance? Maybe he batted for the wrong side in more ways than one! :)

Quote the BBC:

"Mr James worked as a casino croupier, in nightclub security and as a dance instructor before joining the Territorial Army and being sent to Afghanistan in March 2006. "

Was he really subjected to a security screen ? with such credentials.....

Yes it even looks like him, he was (the lad I knew) a bouncer who's father had sent him here from tehran in 1980 as it was a dangerous place to be growing up.
He may have had security clearance from before when he served in the local TA. remember back in the 80's we were happy to have just about anyone who could scrape through the medical and he was very fit back then.

If he was sending email from a UK base in Afg to an Iranian email address then my guess is that he was really, really dumb. Someone on our side in front of a screen somewhere would have had little warning messages popping up that one of our team was talking to one of 'their' team without permission.
