Has anyone asked for Sir Terry's opinion about Egypt?

Considering what Nightwatch is all about, I'd have thought some form of journo would have asked for his opinion about the what's going on in Egypt at the moment?

Welcome to the site, MB! :D

I'm not aware of Terry's opinion on this matter, although maybe Egypt needs a Guild of Assassins.

Hi MB. :P We have the same initials. :D

He also wrote Pyramids! They're pretty Egyptian too. And in Jingo Colon wore a fez - that's Egyptian. :D
