SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL AS SHOWN BY QUADEN BAYLES

I reckon that most people and families given $730,000 would leap in joy, rub their hands and begin to fulfill their wish list, particularly if they had been the victim of bullying and prejudice and wanted to forget and heal. What an astonishing choice to give the money to charities helping all the other victims of unpleasant discrimination. Great respect for Quaden and his family.

I'M PRETTY SURE THE JUDGE THAT SENTENCED JOHN MANLEY WAS PAID OVER CHRISTMAS

I do not condone John Manley's action in venting his rage in a way that risked injury and caused such immense damage, however I am sure that the judge that sentenced him, the prosecutor that prosecuted him, the police that arrested him and the managers at MF Groundworks were paid over Christmas and far more handsomely that Manley has ever been. Why isn't MF Groundworks going to face charges for blighting a hard working man and his family over Christmas? Why can their negligence go unpunished, when it precipitated such dreadful consequences for the family involved, especially John's children who have lost their Dad for so long? Again the judicial system damns a man, already damned by his violent father and his unhappy childhood and incarcerates a man with a mental disorder, who has attempted suicide, in an environment that will achieve nothing but further destruction. No justice here.

RADIO 4 AND DAVID WALKER THE BISHOP OF MANCHESTER PROMOTE CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE

It was chilling to listen to David Walker, the Bishop of Manchester give the Thought for the Day on Radio 4's 'Today' programme, on the 25th February, 2020. He began saying "Power corrupts. Add sexual predation to the exercise of power and the stench of that corruption becomes particularly foul." He then referred to the report claiming that Jean Vanier, founder of the L'Arche community, abused several women, including nuns, into having sexual relations with him. When tackled in his lifetime, about a relationship, he said the sex had been consensual. The Bishop reflected about how hard it must be for a victim to complain when they are reliant on their abuser. However, then his words became sinister. Without any apparent awareness of how what he was about to say, was a further example of what he had just condemned, he spoke of Mary.
He said how this "young woman named Mary gave her consent to the request from the angel Gabriel that she be the mother of Jesus."
However scholarship suggests Mary was between 12 to 14, a child. There was no 'request' from the angel Gabriel. She was told. The account states that Mary was distressed that she was to become pregnant with 'God's son' and wanted to know what was going to happen to her. She is told a power much greater than her would come upon her and overshadow her. It is what so many victims of sexual abuse experience.
The Bishop pointed weakly to her 'consent'. Please Bishop Walker answer this. How can a child say no to God? Is this not the starkest example of child abuse that could be broadcast? The most powerful, sexually abusing the weakest.
The Bishop said that Christians should be inspired to "challenge the abuse of power". So Bishop Walker, I challenge you and Radio 4 to wake up to the abuse narrative you are promoting and with which you are influencing so many. It is the abuse story so overlaid with religion, familiarity and deference that it is the unrecognised monster in the room, from which so much harm issues. The Christian church must revise its beliefs, doctrines and theology to eradicate such horrific material and present such matters in an enlightened and relevant manner.
In reality, Mary became pregnant, either by Joseph or another man, and Joseph and she decided laudably to create a safe, stable family unit and they managed to raise a remarkable son. Destroying the efficacy of the facts with an ancient mythological abuse story can no longer be tolerated and should not be broadcast. It has the unconscionable effect of promoting child sexual abuse, as though with God's approval, read and broadcast on T.V., radio, in churches and schools across the land repeatedly, undermining the attempts to eradicate abuse and safeguard children.

OUR DYSTOPIAN APPROACH TO OFFENDERS.

This is when our dystopian approach to offenders becomes unmanageable and irrational. It is unimaginative and immoral to continue an approach of enlarging the capacity of facilities when there is overwhelming evidence that it results in more crime occurring both within and without the system. Assaults, murders, suicides and self harm inside the prisons remove any moral legitimacy as  the spawning of repeat offenders removes any reformative legitimacy. Our judicial system is anything but and there needs to be a comprehensive change of policy.

THE 'THOUGHT POLICE' AND THE DEATH OF FREEDOM OF SPEECH

The freedom to speak died long ago. Now we are all constrained by law, vested interest, etiquette, propriety, respect, tolerance and sensitivity. Though we may lament its passing, we can laud the fact that we live in a civilised society, not dominated by a baying lynch mob mentality,  drunken populism or the ignorant clamour of prejudice. We don't want to unleash the unfiltered filth that would be disgorged from an unfettered society and are rapidly trying to sanitise the sewage raging across social media. Nevertheless we must provide the means to be able to debate rationally, respectfully and intelligently, to ensure we can evolve enlightened, just and compassionate approaches to life.

JEAN VANIER, FOUNDER OF L'ARCHE, A 'DEVOUT CATHOLIC' , A 'SAINT' AND A 'SEX ABUSER'

We will never prevent sexual abuse until society is brave enough to relinquish its dependence on patriarchy and hierarchy. Unwittingly, we collude with approaches that defer to those in positions of authority, power, fame and celebrity. The corruption and brainwashing is systemic, rooted in the religious traditions, where God is presented both as male, supreme and to be worshiped unquestioningly. It encourages a servility that assumes, hears and sees no evil towards anyone able to don the mantle of power, be it religious, political, social or moral. It means the powerful can so easily conceal their wickedness, especially if they are male. Instead, whether we are in conversation or contact with God, royalty, the P.M., the pope, a judge, a celebrity or a saint, we should be cautious, questioning, assessing continually and investigating every concern that arises.

EMILY SALT, ABUSED BY HER BANK MANAGER AND BY SOCIETY

Our very sick society, when a young trainee can be predated by a 56 year old manager, who though married and cherishing a daughter, decided to betray his family, satisfy his lust and violate a 26 year old woman's life. Not only that, but then cannot find any other response to absorb the disturbed behaviour arising from his destructive choices and her trauma, than pursuing a criminal case against her and having her punished, while he walks away with impunity. Further, society not only names and shames the abused victim but provides anonymity to the predatory manager. Another insult to Von Heussen's legislation intended to protect her daughter from a knife carrying man who was stalking her.

AMERICA DARES TO SEEK PROFIT FROM THE HORRORS OF AUSCHWITZ

Amazon and Netflix are American behemoths, whose overriding concerns are profit and market share. Morality, truth, facts and propriety hold little purchase in their commercial and cultural colonialization. History condemns our savagery. Profiteering amidst the wickedness is depraved.

THE VILE PRISONS TO WHICH WE SEND THE INNOCENT TO BE ASSAULTED, RAPED AND MURDERED

It is apparent that there is a vast chasm between the complex reality of people's lives on the one hand, and on the other, the inept, bullying and ignorant judicial system, and the lynch mob of public media extirpation and internet trolling. This dislocation triggers heartbreak, mental illness, social upheaval and tragically even suicide. There is no room for justification about this, only shame, regret and a sincere desire for reform. Those who write smugly in support of our broken judicial system and the need to act over every 'assault' should remind themselves that the individuals (some of whom are later found to be innocent) we consign knowingly to prison, are likely to be assaulted, raped or even murdered under the 'State's care' or are likely to be so traumatised by what happens to them that they self harm or commit suicide. Again, shame can only be our moral response and an acknowledgement that there needs to be urgent reform.

BILLIONS OF POUNDS IN AID END UP IN TAX HAVENS

The tax haven corruption and the scandals in the main charity sector led us to become involved closely to ensure that our fund raising and personal giving arrived where it was intended and achieved our aims, so far, two villages fitted with bore hole solar powered water provisions.  Leopold Kohr's phrase ''Small is beautiful" adopted by Ernst Schumacher is an inspiration for individual and community donors to focus on modest projects where the train of accountability is maintained right to the end. Macro infrastructure aid projects supported by inter-governmental and World Bank funds must retain the same close scrutiny. Dispatching vast chunks of money may salve the conscience, but with no enduring legacy, if they end up in Swiss accounts bank rolling the corrupt.

THE COURT,QUEEN'S COUNSEL AND THE PM COSY UP TOGETHER TO KEEP US ALL IN THE DARK

If you are powerful, wealthy and have connections, it seems, like the Red Sea, the way clears before you, and what is not possible for most, is gifted to you; in this case an 'exceptional reporting restriction'. Meanwhile the private lives and difficulties of the less advantaged are plastered across the media, in which they are humiliated, hounded and even driven to suicide.

JOHNSON EGOTISTICAL LEGACY

Johnson's great solution for the Brexit impasse. Change tack, betray colleagues, surf on the wave of popular self centredness and become PM, move in his lover, buy off an estranged wife, keep his love child/ren hush hush, get the no trade deal his Rees-Mogg cronies always wanted, shaft Northern Ireland with a border he pledged would never exist, deliver up Scotland to Europe and denude the British museums. What a glorious egotistical legacy.

DOWNING STREET CAN'T SO EASILY DODGE THE BULLET OVER CAROLINE

No 10 dodges the bullet to direct fire at the Tech firms.

NO MELANIE PHILLIPS, THE POLICE, CPS AND COURT HAVE MUCH TO ANSWER FOR.

Odd that Melanie Phillips exonerates the actions of the police and CPS but then goes on to bemoan the rise in suicide, as though the methods by which we respond to people's disturbances and traumas were not contributory factors. It is quite apparent that there is a considerable difference between various instances of 'domestic abuse'. Extreme persistent violence in dysfunctional relationships from which one partner cannot escape invites intervention. However many others go unreported, and the couples self resolve and build secure ongoing relationships. Others spill into the public domain where Melanie Phillips indicates that there should be a one answer fits all approach, irrespective of the intricacies involved. Such a brutal, unintelligent and insensitive approach can precipitate suicide, and it is irrational to refuse to review reforms might better address such delicate relational crises.

THE JOHNSON DOWNING STREET FIASCO

Is this just the beginning of the Johnson Downing Street fiasco? Sabisky advises with his vile views on eugenics, enforced contraception, incest erotica, paedophilia and how to be racist, while the P.M.'s lover slips in the back door, the family court hears about his disputes with his estranged wife over money and there is that question he remains slow to answer, about how many children he actually has. Meanwhile our citizens have been abandoned to be infected with Coronavirus off Japan, the 'United' Kingdom faces the prospect of losing Scotland and Northern Ireland and we are heading for a no trade deal nightmare with Europe.

LORD MACDONALD SHOULD BE CRITICISING CAROLINE FLACK'S DEATH SENTENCE NOT JUSTIFYING IT

Lord Macdonald defends the indefensible. He admits the inattention, paid to those violated by inappropriate decisions to prosecute, who are suffering mental anxiety and illness, but puts it down to budget constraints. He points to the irrelevant argument that victims can be put under pressure or manipulation by their assailants, evidently not applicable in this case. He misunderstands the pernicious and self interested use by police and the CPS of high profile cases to vaunt themselves and their own procedures.  Particular care must be taken when handling celebrities, because they are instantly 'punished' the moment the police become involved. This is exacerbated by a decision to prosecute and  intensified further by the imposition of an asinine and inhumane bail condition.  It proved to be a death penalty and the police, the CPS and Lord Macdonald should be reviewing seriously their murderous approaches, rather than smugly justifying them.

SHAME ON THE POLICE, CPS, COURT, MEDIA AND PUBLIC FOR DRIVING CAROLINE FLACK TO SUICIDE

Caroline Flack would be alive today if the police and the Crown Prosecution Service hadn't showcased the difficulties that had arisen, no doubt transiently, within her personal relationship. Opportunistically riding on her celebrity status, the police leaked information about the case, the CPS and court crashed around the vulnerable interface between her and Lewis Burton like a bull in a china shop, the media vultures had a feeding frenzy and internet trolls disgorged all their vitriol upon her. Instead of facilitating the desire of Burton and Flack to be reconciled and restored, the CPS pressed charges and the court inhumanely, insensitively and crassly imposed the bail condition consigning Flack into an enforced solitude, at the very time she needed so acutely to communicate with Burton. Of course this modern day tragedy is set within a context of Love Island that promotes artificiality, pretence, surgically enhanced 'beauty' and the allurement and curse of fame, that like the Midas touch leads so often to despair, isolation and continual torment. People are essentially fragile, hiding their insecurities behind whatever front is available. Members of the police, courts, media and public must all hang their heads in shame and sorrow for the part they played in bringing about Caroline's heartache and suicide.

Please spread the message to every young wannabee that fame is a curse to be avoided at all costs. The most beautiful part of life is anonymity and normality. Nothing compares to the innocent wonder of those two basic things. We are all so intricately fragile. Very few can cope happily with fame and the vicious exposure that results.

STOP GENDER DISCRIMINATION IN SCHOOL UNIFORM

Shame these last vestiges of gender discrimination that continue unassailed in the private and public sector. Restricting the freedom of girls in long skirts is as unacceptable as requiring them to wear a skirt of any length. Differentiation in attire on the basis of gender must be a personal choice and there must be a range of options in institutions that cover both variation and uniformity. At a time when debate is fierce about the coerced wearing of the hijab, niqab, burka, al-amira, shayla, khimar or chador by women, an article espousing the coerced disadvantaging of girls through an imposed dress code is retrograde.

THE MONARCH BUTTERFLIES SHOW THAT GOD KNOWS WHO MURDERED HOMERO GOMEZ GONZALEZ

The murder of Homero Gomez Gonzalez and now Raul Herandez Romero exposes the corruption and complicity that contaminates Mexico. Officials have declared that the deaths are unsuspicious, even unrelated and are not linked to their involvement with the outstanding butterfly sanctuary, that provides refuge to the million Monarch butterflies that migrate there each year from Canada, but which is threatened by illegal logging and avocado production. Since 2006, 60,000 people have disappeared, presumed murdered by criminal gangs.  Apparently, during Gonzalez's funeral a kaleidoscope of Monarch butterflies fluttered into the church. Let it be a warning, that the wicked can destroy the fragile, but God, nature and the world is watching and all evil will be held to account.
