That august and titillating organ of the Murdoch empire, The Sun, tells me today that members of the Taliban in Afghanistan have been heard talking to each other using Birmingham accents. Personally, I have difficulty imagining this to be true. Why on earth would they want to do so? Why would they speak in English so any eavesdropper can understand what they are saying and then want to sound thick?
