"Fortunately, I live in the UK, so nobody really gives a damn what you believe! This is the advantage of having an established religion, so that everyone can ignore it. Anyway, we had 200 years of religiously based wars, before tolerance was…"
"Fortunately I live in a country with Church of England as the established church, with a constitutional monarch as head of the church and state, therefore nobody takes it seriously! We had our religious wars from the 11th century through to the…"
"I think that the idea of a war on an abstract noun rather than a nation state is ludicrous, an outpouring of bullshit from Bush Minor, and the tragedy is that the current incumbent of the presidency has been hamstrung by the republican regressives.…"

As for food... the same nostalgia takes me to my Welsh Grandmother cutting fresh brown bread in that characteristic welsh…"
"What concerns me is the total lack of empathy with others or acceptance of life having a social context, much as you would expect from a psychopath.
We live with and for others, not just for your self."
"I love it when missionaries come to my door and ask if I have heard the news, and do I read my Bible. My usual reply is that I am always reading it for a good old belly laugh that anyone can be so simple as to believe any of it, and for a window…"
"I really think that conservative and liberal are society specific concepts. What is liberal in the USA could be seen as really right wing in the UK, and neo-con is seen as being further to the right that Gengis Khan!
I am a british conservative and…"
