    Christian patrol in Luton. I'm afraid that there will be more and more violence in British cities. The writing is on the wall. There is a limit to ordinary citizens' patience and you will see that normal peaceful behaving people will turn into raging...

  12. Holy Quran Experiment

    Wonder what the result would be in the states, maybe the fundamentalists would recognise the quotes? Course as an atheist I know that the koran and the old testament are surprisingly similar although it's some years since I sat down and read them.

    Without taking sides for or against taking action because, quite frankly, I don't know any more. However, I am currently watching the debate on BBC but I find myself wondering if such a debate is likely to change any MPs minds regarding whether they will vote for or against. The only input I have...

    This is pretty bizarre. My heart goes out to my friends in Paris, and to the members of FG who live in France. May this be resoled quickly.

    What an actor, I'm sorry to hear of his death. He had a flair for comedy as well as a wonderful screen presence in dramatic roles. He was an asset wherever he appeared, I enjoyed seeing him perform.
