5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky and odd but good, 11 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These shoes are great! I ordered the wrong size and got the right fit! Other reviews say they come up small, but I have size 8 feet and ordered size 7 shoes (because they had no size 8s, but they were so cheap at £4 and I wanted to see what they were like) and they fit perfectly. They are comfortable. They've got a bit of tyre for a sole, which is slippery on carpet but holds the road well on tarmac. They're quirky and odd and I like them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality hat, 29 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Rossi cap is really well made and in real life the yellow is much more vibrant than in the pictures. There are two versions of this cap - this one is the trucker cap which means it has got meshing at the back. The other one is a standard cloth cap. I haven't tried the standard one but the trucker version is quite solid and shaped at the front. I'd recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Misplaced faith, 12 Dec. 2009
I was taught by Prof Andrew at Cambridge University in 2002-3. I recall in one lecture he passed around photocopies of the British government's newly published dossier on Iraq's WMDs. I can remember him saying "You can be certain that if the Joint Intelligence Committee has put this information into the public domain they will be absolutely sure of it". He doesn't seem to have learned.

This book contains huge amounts of information which will be very useful, but it is underpinned by Prof Andrew's faith in the propriety of British intelligence officers. MI5 chose Prof Andrew to write this book because it already knew where his sympathies lie (it is an intelligence agency after all). So that's what you get.
