I was going to write something yesterday, however I got so annoyed by people hijacking Easter I decided it probably wasn’t a good idea. All those sycophantic messages (mostly political and vote-seeking) from many who have little or no interest in Christianity, or worse still, belong to groups or who align themselves with individuals who often want to see and encourage (or even participate in) its demise and destruction.
The news this morning does not seem much better and Jeremy Corbyn seems to be determined to ride this one out. Appalling arrogance! What an appalling example of so-called leadership he is! Then there is the new ‘comedienne’ appointed to the NEC of the Labour Party…well, that’s a good joke anyway.
I have just been reading about the fact that there are now more murders in London than in the ‘crime capital’ that is New York. Our ‘forefathers’ are probably turning in their graves at this news. One of the observers on this sad news commentating on social media, used that (in)famous line from the much-derided and misunderstood politician Enoch Powell…from his speech in the Burlington Hotel in Birmingham…when he referred to the “rivers of blood”. It seems to be being quoted and reflected on much more these days…interesting, considering they were ‘dirty words’ not that long ago.
I have just been reading reports of the heavy traffic in parts of the U.K. Why do so many people get in their cars on Bank Holidays and spend a large part of their precious time in traffic jams and in this case, in miserable and wet weather. I don’t and never will understand it and ALWAYS stay at home on such occasions. The only down side is that my so-called diet ‘goes to the dogs’!
