 Just another example of the  sickening prevarications of the great and the good about the sexual scandals to which they turned a blind eye. So Lord Steel knew Cyril Smith spanked little boys at the Council run children's home but still chose to recommend him for a knighthood. He suggests it should now be withdrawn. What about his own?


 I have been involved with so many people in my ministry going through life's regular hassles, problems and traumas who have visited their GP and come back with a bag full of anti-depressants. They often appear proud, even vindicated, as though the GP's prescription permits them to declare they are in need of medical support, and should be handled with indulgence.
The trickery involved is irritating. GP's bang out the pills to empty their surgeries and by so doing collude with the self deception of the patient. It encourages substance abuse, dependency and a lack of character resolve to withstand the current  life challenge and mature through it.



 A disturbing example of how misappropriated finance makes way for jihadist outrages under the impotent gaze of an effete government and the disinterested wealthy.


While I abhor the death penalty, why are the drugs administered by Dignitas not used to ensure a dignified death?
