It has transpired on this week’s Pienaar’s Politics that guitar strumming crooner James Blunt stopped World War Three. No, really.

Then Lieutenant Blunt, while serving in Kosovo the man we know as the architect of such musical gems as ‘You’re Beautiful’ wanted to disobey orders from a senior American General to attack Russian troops who were occupying an airfield.  His commander at the time General Mike Jackson came onto the radio telling Blunt that he didn’t want ‘my soldiers to be responsible for starting World War Three’. The now retired General revealed on the programme that  Blunt was later disciplined for disobeying orders.

Who knew the man had so many talents?
