The Anonymous Widower

An Appalling Death Cult

Not my words, but those of David Cameron in this report on the BBC. These are the full words he used.

We all have a role to play in stopping people from having their minds poisoned by this appalling death cult.

I agree entirely.

If Islamic State was something like the movement started by Jim Jones, that ended so tragically in Guyana, we might have taken action earlier.

They say there’s one born every minute and religion certainly takes advantage.

What I find strange about religion, is that it often fleeces the poor of their money and sanity, but although the rich may leave their money to their church, temple or mosque, they generally don’t get fleeced in their lifetime.

Match Thirty-Two – Ipswich 0 – Reading 1

This was one of those matches that contributed to a tiresome day. It started by having to go to Ipswich via Billericay and a coach.

Ah! Billericay!

Ah! Billericay!

Reading scored one of those goals and then sat back and defended – Game Over!

Coming home was much worse, as I was dropped into the organised chaos at Liverpool Street.

Did They Give This Building An Unlucky Name?

This article on the BBC describes a fire in a residential building called The Torch.

I suspect, if it is save, that the building will be renamed.

I’ve lived in a tower block in the Barbican and I can remember discussing with C at the time, the film Towering Inferno. It didn’t bother us living high in a tower, but we never saw the film.

I still haven’t!
