Good points! I dont know why everyone seems to have a go at the guy,Ex S.A.S[Unarmed combat instructor amongst other things] Youngest person to climb Everest,a massive feat in anyone' book! or maybe he had back up!!Ha! seems to me its all too easy to knock someone out there doing the buisness,who does have the credentials to back it up!
There is enough crap on the TV,and you maynot enjoy the format of his 'SHOWS' but at least he gives the kids a decenct alternative to all the the negative role models out there,and whats more shows them,and alot of adults an alternative to sitting on thier arse's and frying thier brains with computer games!
Who amongst you if you are HONEST wouldnt like to have done A HALF of what he's done??!
I say Well done chap!and Power to your elbow!
