Still, I’ve just been exposed to a program on Radio National that was trying to convince its audience that prog rock wasn’t a load of utter shite and that Emerson Lake and Palmer weren’t a bunch of pretentious fucking wankers. My scepticism levels are already peaking in the red.

So fuck the nukes and the tanks, how's your water polo team?
Bronshtein wrote:Leaving aside banned weaponry, (Prog Rock) the ranking system for the list of 'major powers' may have the odd flaw -It includes a broad spectrum of capabilities, across several areas of national capacity, from the capacity of each major power’s projection forces to the scale of its sporting prowess (it does not only measure “soft power”, or global presence, etc.)
So England got to the semi finals of the Association Football World Cup whereas the PRC haven't qualified for the finals tournament since 2002 (their only appearance) so England are MUCH more powerful than China (in kicking a plastic simulacrum of a pig's bladder about a bit of grass, real of artificial).
Likewise the USA barely figures in international sporting prowess, one wonders how they can rank so high? After all:It is not necessarily a ranking of countries’ warfighting capacity, even assuming that the major powers – especially those armed with nuclear weapons – could engage and prevail in such conflict. Rather, the Audit assumes prevailing geopolitical circumstances, where the major powers compete for influence in the “grey zone” between “peace” and “war”
Harry Kane is Britain's (England's and therefore Britain's) Weapon of Mass Destruction!
