I stood there leaking in and out of my head. Apparently if we’d never gone to war in Iraq in the first place then the terrible situation with Islamic State right now wouldn’t be happening. Blair/Sadham/WMD it’ll never go away. Apparently if the west could just stop interfering, that’s the only way they’d ever ‘win’ the war on terrorism, said the man opposite me in the pub. The television in the corner was playing an advert from the RSPCA showing emaciated and badly treated cats and dogs. Not for the first time I thought, how are we expected to live? My fingers smelled of vomit.
