Scales of Justice? Rape is in the headlines once more, but for all the wrong reasons and not because at long last Britain has done something to halt the increase in rape, or stop 100 or so women being raped every day, or bring to justice more than 1% of the evil rapists. No, this […]

‘Morals’ – where the hell did it all go wrong?

Our lovely Britain is gone forever, hasn’t it?

‘Loyalty’ and ‘Self sacrifice’ – replaced by ‘Unfaithfulness’ and ‘Greed’?

It must be strange for the current generation to hear the stories from the last one about society’s values in the times gone by, don’t you think?

Meredith Kercher murder trial after 7 long years– Italian justice?
