ISIS, Revoking British Citizenship and UK Domestic Terrorism

Revoking UK passports could be how we stop British ISIS fighters from returning to the UK

“British jihadists ‘should be stripped of citizenship’, says David Davis”

This was one of the articles I read in the Guardian on Monday morning. My first thoughts were, “well unless they’re dual citizens, that’s illegal under international law,” but none the less I read on and to be honest, I see where he is coming from; though let me be very clear, I am not saying I agree with him.

Holy cr*p! Jake’s talking about a game again. Yeah, it’s been a while, and to be honest I don’t have an awful lot to say on the topic because to be honest, I don’t wanna get to involved in the CoD scene…but I’ve said that a few times now.

Yes, AW looks pretty damn good and it damn well better be since this seriously is the last thread for me as far as CoD goes. If this fails, I’m 100% done with…

Whilst in Korea at SeoulTech for a 2 week summer school I met many people from many countries including: Japan, Taiwan, China, Russia, USA and more. It was a fascinating experience and I have made some true life long friends both in the UK and overseas. However, there was one incident that left me totally speechless, which for anyone who knows me is a complete rarity.

Now before I go into detail…

Hey guys, not many photos this time around. Woke up with a killer headache only to find out that we would be playing drums – very loud ones – called Samulnori (사물놀이). Here’s a quick video of the proper guys playing.

Seoul Day 2 – Monday – The learning begins

So, no pictures this time, in fact we didn’t even really get up to much.

Started the day at 11am with introductory speeches from the dean and other staff, followed by a class.

The class began with some basic vocabulary and phrases that we would see in a film we were about to watch called Sunny (써니)…without subtitles -_-

Day One in Seoul

Day One in Seoul

So I landed around midday and made it to the university around 4pm thanks to amazing traffic jams, the bus was extremely comfortable so I can’t complain.

Got settled into the room, I’m with a guy from my uni who I’ve not met before and a guy from Michigan Uni, both nice guys; there’s an Indonesian also staying in our room, but I have only heard him, not seen >_>

However, disaster struck when I…

Crazy!

Only a long flight to Fukuoka, Japan and then a short flight to Seoul,…
