Ten minutes with Andy McNab

We thought and thought but couldn’t remember the last time we’d met an SAS hero biker. So before he left us, we bombarded McNab with questions for a further 10 minutes.  MCN: Are motorcycles popular in SAS?AM: Very much so. You’re encouraged to live out of camp and people commute in from all over the place by bike. In the car...

I'd have hoped you'd have been slightly less dull on a non MotoGP thread but apparently you aren't.

Hmm...

Maybe you "don't ask that sort of question of a serviceman", but this publicity-seeking death merchant does kind of beg to get asked that sort of question, don't you think?

Well why don't we ask him how well he can make a Spanish Omelette  on this MOTORCYCLING website as well. Just as relevent IMO!

"And the involvement of 22nd Special Air Service in the Iran-Iraq war was? I suggest you engage your brain first."

Where does it mention SAS involvement? The "we" in McNab's answer refers to the nation, along with the US' backing.

Be careful of suggesting brain engagement.

Comment seems mysteriously to have vanished

Oh well, surely just some technical error.

McNab is a joke, and it's just sad that folk keep publishing his increasingly deranged ramblings as fact.  I see he's killed and eaten 170 people now.  Doubtless he'll have 'remembered' dozens more by the next time he's shilling a book.

Shame on you for giving him the oxygen of publicity, MCN.  You should know better.

Mandy..

.."I don't talk about my time either, usually, unless it's with the lads I served with" - I guess when you're peeling spuds for the boys doing the real graft, you wouldn't want to shout about it. We understand.

The UK provided weapons related equipment... & presumably the training to use it (though the UK may have had all sorts of other involvement that we'll never get to hear about).

So we've established there was a war & the UK did back Iraq as he said. You can doubt that Iraqi personnel were trained at Sandhurst but it really doesn't matter does it?... his word against yours... he was there you weren't... but to do so would be a troll... which you are (you've said as much)... so go ahead.

Other possible articles

Here's a suggestion MCN - why not get on the widow of Harold Shipman for an interview?  After all, he killed over 250 people, which is surely even better than this McNab freak.

Failing that, neo-Nazi white supremacist Breivik of Norway is still alive - interview him.   Admittedly he only killed just shy of 80 people, but maybe he's got a mate who once rode a motorbike.
