    Didn’t see your #epicwarsaw suggestion. I suggested #warsawcup and, as you know, Andy suggested #WeSawWarsaw… which I suspect we may all soon come to regret and shorten to #wesaw (which i notice is actually already being used by someone!)

    Anyway, given the high-powered social media credentials of the participants on this trip, and the effort it’s taken so far to settle on a simple hashtag (the words ‘organise’ ‘piss up’ & ‘brewery’ come to mind)… I fear for this trip! I hope the Poles know what they are taking on!
