RESIST THE LOVE ISLAND CANCER SPREADING TO TWO SERIES

Our culture may be able to withstand one series of Love Island, though much would point otherwise, however, two could prove terminal. As with most things that are bad for us, taken in moderation, it may be tolerable, but deadly in overdose. The threat involves the money driven distortion of reality, shamelessly and relentlessly promoted to the young as normality. Steroid driven muscular men and breast, buttock, lip and face augmented women are coerced and manipulated to pair with one another to avoid being dumped, build Instagram followers and even win the paltry £25,000 each, which is pocket money on the way to the millions that lie beyond. Make up, hair creations and designer clothes are obsessions. The dialogue broadcast is trite, shallow, superficial and heavily edited for salacious effect. Trickery, betrayal, division, competition and argument is encouraged. Relationships are hot housed, artificially accelerated and presented as natural patterns of courting. Couples are forced to share the same bed and sexual activity invited, even expected, rewarded with visits to a private area, where sexual 'toys' are provided. Outlandish claims that participants have slept with over 100 partners go unchallenged. Fantasy dates are organised where couples trigger each other into ever more exaggerated expressions of appreciation, adoration and commitment. They believe their relationship has faced immense challenges in the villa and that nothing can defeat them in the outside world. What does, often rapidly, is a dose of reality. However, the impressionable young are left with a legacy of lies, deception, manipulation and perversion as exemplars with which they are meant to fashion their own lives, make their own decisions and approach relationships. Two series of Love Island is yet another step towards the destruction of our culture, the erosion of traditional virtues, values, self discipline and dignity and the moral fibre, essential for social harmony, stable intimate relationships, true happiness and fulfillment.

WHO WILL SUPPORT CURTIS'S VICTIMS THROUGH THEIR PTSD?

Maura presents as a strong woman, but it seems she too has fallen under Curtis's spell. Watching this smooth philanderer and strategist, his tactics become glaringly apparent, but sadly not so, for his unfortunate victims. Will Love Island take responsibility for the PTSD that some of his casualties may suffer, after the show is over? How can a person so callously play with the hearts of others, knowing they are destined to be dumped, that they are just pawns in a game, that he can only offer vacuous platitudes to their sincerity?

BORIS JOHNSON IS P.M. - NEVER HAS THE U.K. BEEN SO SHAMED

The U.K. has plummeted into unthinkable depths of shame and humiliation. Undermining the fragile European Union, pursuing nationalism, threatening our own Union, blighting the U.K. economy, stirring up civil strife, leaving our shipping exposed with a vessel taken, denuding our armed forces, condemning a mother to additional incarceration through ineptitude, and appointing a butt as prime minister.

OVIE NAILS CURTIS'S DECEIT IN ONE AND JORDAN RE-POSITIONS AFTER CLOCKING ANNA'S UNPOPULARITY

When will be rid of this tawdry show, in which the best actors vie for the £50,000 and Instagram riches? At least Ovie had the courage to call out Curtis's continual and devastatingly convincing display of strategic deception. Will someone else have the sincerity to stop Jordan in his tracks, as he desperately contemplates a better card for the final twist? 'Love' Island is nothing of the sort, just a mucky meander through the half truths and pretences that human beings mutually trade, as they sport together, ready for their ultimate betrayals. Even Joanna, though declaring herself an 'independent woman' in After Sun could do nothing more than giggle ineffectively, rather than exposing Michael for the cad he has been.

THE TORIES WILL BE FOREVER CONDEMNED FOR THE BORIS AND BREXIT TRAGEDY

The U.K. is destined for hardship, chaos and humiliation as the dissolute and indulged Boris moves in to No 10, with his lover, hell-bent on eroding the unity and peace of Europe, irrespective of how dire the consequences. The Tories will be forever condemned for this outrage. Every last attempt must be made to prevent this exigency.

WE TRIFLE WHILE THE WORLD PREPARES TO BURN

While our negligence allows the seizure of a British vessel, amid the toxic ferment in the middle east, we prepare to appoint a flagitious prime minister, demean ourselves over Brexit, and are more interested in Love Island and celebrity and royal blether, than the international order.

LOVE ISLAND PROMOTES LIARS AND DUMMIES AND PERVERTS THE YOUNG

Love Island descended to new lows this week by giving a platform for men to lie about the number of their sexual partners. Jordan Hames claimed 100, Anton Danyuk 60, Tommy Fury 40 and Michael Griffiths so many that only God knew. Either they are serial abusers or blatant liars. Either way they should have no place on a reality TV show, that has such an influence over young people. Nor would any right minded woman choose them as a partner. The other malignancy, in this world of deception and artificiality that is being foisted on impressionable minds, is the replacement of reality with body enhancements. Steroid achieved musculature, Botox dependent facial and buttock curvature and breast enlargement, all form the basis of these human dummies given as exemplars. As Amber Gill declared, she was more worried about outward appearance than what may lie within. Such a shallow approach to relationship has laid her susceptible to Michael Griffiths's seductive lie, when he implied his comment, on Joanna Chimonides's departure, that he had found everything he was looking for in the villa, was directed at Amber. Skin deep, superficial, transitory and false are the traits forming the scourge of this generation. Television should not be promoting them.

THE EDUCATION SYSTEM THAT BORES, BRUTALISES AND BULLIES OUR CHILDREN

Our outmoded educational system bores our children, exposes them to coercive and conformist agendas, stifles initiative and individuality, exposes them to peer group bullying, prejudice and intimidation and then has the audacity to undermine family life and wholesome, unforgettable childhood experiences. The schools should be being sued, fined and pursued through the courts for their abuse of our children.

SAM CONNOR'S TRAGIC DEATH INDICTS THE ADULT WORLD

Sam Connor's tragic death indicts the adult world, and all the prevarication and words that adults will use to conceal their culpability, will never be able to erase the judgement, that this young boy's broken body delivers. Children today in school are more at risk, not less, even with all the Ofsted inspections, child protection measures, safeguarding officers and anti bullying policies in place, because the first priority of educational governance, sickeningly, is itself and its operatives, not the vulnerable young in its care.

TRUMP WOULD HAVE US BURN FOR HIS PROFIT

It takes little encouragement for humans to revert to their base instincts. Leadership that manipulates the bestial instinct can enjoy popularity but also reap gross consequences. Those who whip up racism, xenophobia, isolationism and division are often the advantaged elite, who know they can further protect their interests, by re-directing the discontent of those they oppress, onto innocent scapegoats. However, all may burn in the hatred generated.

CURTIS PRITCHARD CONTINUES TO USE WOMEN AS PLAY THINGS, WHILE SMILING

Curtis, shivered again when the public chose not to save him, in his coupling with Francesca, so rapidly decided it was time to stop straddling both women, and try his luck with Maura. With artifice he found his way into Maura's mouth while managing to extricate himself from Francesca's, yet ensuring he kept a room at least, in her heart. After all, in Curtis's view, the more doors to which you have keys, the better. A revealing moment came weeks ago, when Curtis, normally proactive in strategy and guile, was wrong footed by Tommy's innocent sincerity in declaring his profound appreciation of their friendship. Sincerity took Curtis's breath away and in that single unscripted moment, his insincerity became painfully transparent. He was lost for words! Let us hope that the women wise up to his wiles, before more damage is done by this, oh so deftly, rampaging man.

NEVER TRUST A POLICEMAN

Never trust a policeman. One should never trust anyone without evidence to do so, and the wearing of a uniform, of any kind, should ring further alarm bells. The false sense of security, that a person purporting to represent a particular profession engenders, must always be resisted, be they police, teachers, clergy, social workers, medics, prison staff, journalists, fire officers or others. It is well attested that rogues don any disguise available. In all relationships, one is looking to establish a person's integrity and that takes time, testing and experience. The default position must always be caution.

THE JUDGES WHO GOT THE CREAM CONDEMN THE POOR, BLACKS AND ASIANS TO PRISON

Trust in the judicial system is in sharp decline, with justice increasingly constrained by questionable encroachments on the provision and scrutiny of evidence, limitations placed on the defence, censorship of material placed before juries and a growing 'management', manipulation and coercion of the process of trial. The systemic prejudice that involves the advantaged, educated wealthy condemning the disadvantaged, less educated poor to prison, while socialising with their criminal peers, is further tainted by the racism behind these chilling statistics.

WHEN A PRIEST'S PRAYERS AND LAYING ON OF HANDS COULD KILL MILLIONS

Evangelical and Christian fundamentalist beliefs now imperil the world, with the potential to slay millions. Irresponsible physical contact and missionary travel, in the name of God, and healing the sick, have brought Ebola to Goma, and potentially, the world to the edge of catastrophe. Religions have a duty to evolve their theology to prevent such folly, and governments a duty to regulate precarious religious practices.

I AM PROUD OF MY WRITING, FOR JESUS’S SAKE, THAT HAS HAD ME FOUND INNOCENT IN HEAVEN, BUT TWICE A CRIMINAL ON THE EARTH. THE FIRST IN 1990 WHEN I WROTE A BIBLICAL TEXT ON THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT IN PEACEFUL PROTEST ABOUT THE BOMBING OF YOUNG IRAQI RECRUITS DURING THE FIRST GULF WAR. THE SECOND, IN 2016 WHEN I WROTE ON MY BLOG, TO ALERT THE PUBLIC ABOUT A PAEDOPHILE, AND WAS SUCCESSFUL IN FORCING THE AUTHORITIES TO STOP HIM HAVING ACCESS TO CHILDREN. THERE WAS ALMOST A THIRD! IN 1997, WHEN I WAS ARRESTED FOR NAILING MY PROPOSALS FOR REFORM OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND ON THE DOOR OF CANTERBURY CATHEDRAL. WORDS ARE POWERFUL MESSAGES THAT CHALLENGE  CORRUPTION, CONFRONT THE WICKED AND CREATE A BETTER WORLD. JESUS IS THE WORD OF GOD AND HIS FOLLOWERS ARE CALLED  TO COMMUNICATE HIS WORDS,  IRRESPECTIVE OF THE COST.

IN MEMORY OF EMILY HARTRIDGE

This fragile life, where one so gifted, can be cruelly torn from her loved ones. In the mystery of our frangible lives, may our hope in the fortuity of the unknown beyond, palliate the overwhelming heartache. Love alone to the grieving.

A JOYOUS WEDDING WITH MANY GUESTS FOR WHOM I HAVE TAKEN SERVICES OVER THE YEARS

The photograph shows a young man I baptised as a child. The guests also included a couple I married 19 years ago and another family for whom I had baptised all three of their children. Loving ministry, woven through the decades, the harvest of which brings me such profound joy.

RAGE AND MARTYRDOM MAY BE THE RESULT FROM ILL JUDGED 'JUSTICE' RE TOMMY ROBINSON

Rage has been triggered by the police and judiciary's track record in failing to convict and jail child abusers, while jailing the activist, Tommy Robinson. Often such campaigners come with uncomfortable associations, that make it easy for the executive to parody and punish them. However, failing to identify and respond positively to the malaise they wish to highlight is a grave error. Further, applying the law disproportionately and nonsensically, out of judicial pique, only exacerbates the rage. As the judiciary cannot guarantee the safety of any inmate in today's prisons, and acts immorally by committing prisoners to a high probability of assault or even murder, then woe betide, should they produce a martyr.

WE NEED MORE GAIL HADFIELD-GRAINGERS TO EXPOSE POLICE BRUTALITY

We need more Gail Hadfield-Graingers to confront police brutality, assaults and murder. However the trauma and tragedies for which the police are responsible, even with such courageous and committed campaigners after the truth, end up "managed" by the authorities within a sea of words such as "litany of negligence" and "ineptitude", with no prosecutions and only monetary compensation or meaningless apologies. We must face up to the chilling reality that the executive, the rich and the powerful, can too often get away with assault, murder, theft, drug taking, dishonesty, sexual abuse, bullying and rape. Only a robust, resourced and free press, and the right to free speech, not undermined by gagging orders and NDA's, can hold all to account.
