So, while I was away....

Foot and mouth appears once again. I don't want to appear overly cynical, but there aren't many votes for Labour in Surrey or Somerset.

The fallout from the Hereford church homophobia case drifts on, with all but one somewhat risible commentator recognising that it wasn't a good outcome for the church. It is truly abhorrent to watch them all try to find ways to discriminate based on their supposed 'principles', and truly pathetic to watch the closeted and the oppressed and deluded at the front of that argument. The reality of the church becoming the bolthole for the bigoted is ever more true.

I am also wondering if the hounding of Morat with regard to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann is another case of picking on the 'weirdo'. There have been a whole string of suspects in all sorts of cases who have actually been proved not to be guilty but have fitted a particular pattern. Sadly, the public campaign came to nothing, and perhaps a repeat will not be on the cards. I hope not.
