As Europe scurries after the alienated, radicalised, often criminalised, people who pose this very immediate threat to our cities and way of life, has the moment come for our own governments to confront our relationship with the Saudis, even as that country tries to confront its own threat from Isis? Many in Britain, and indeed Belgium, would claim that we need to pursue a new course that will refuse all compromise with a regime that allegedly fosters the export of practices which so many Islamic scholars condemn as an abuse and contortion of a precious faith which brings so much succour to so many.

Maybe, just maybe, we've been so distracted trying to defend Ned Stark's honour that we've all overlooked the most defining feature of these books: the unexpected. Martin thrives off shocking his readers, it's one of the things that sets his books apart. Yes, it'd be an absolutely travesty of justice and a betrayal of fans if Snow was killed just as Westeros seems to need him most, but that's exactly why Martin would do it.
