Stephen Tomkins comments that the Christian Church has come a long way from its radical origins, but he appears to be lumping all Christians together in this.

I applaud what the protesters are doing and feel that the clergy of Paul's should be doing more to support them.

Does equality in throne succession involve leaving the seat up or down? These things need to be made clear.

You can tell anyone in favour of moving clocks forward an hour permanently have never suffered from depression. It's a good job I have Magazine Monitor to brighten my dark mornings on the way to work!
