It is good to have been away from my home country at a time when its simpering, grovelling politicians, obsequious media and fawning celebrities affect delight at some over-hyped nuptials. Mind you, you can´t totally escape it here, with the images cropping up on TV in the intervals between the copious football, and on the covers of newspapers and magazines I don´t buy (because I can´t read them). All good marketing for UK plc, I guess. Not interested myself.
However, being a member of the National Secular Society, from which I thus receive its weekly e-mail Newsline, there is something from back home that I consider worth drawing the attention (of interested scientists) to. As the Blue Spectre continues in his self-modelling into Blair Mk II process with his recently alarming abuse of non-separation of church and state quote:
“I’ve never really understood this argument about ‘Should the Church get involved in politics? Yes or no’. To me, Christianity, faith, religion, the Church is involved in politics because so many political questions are moral questions.”

slimed over hosted a reception for religious leaders at Downing Street, we ought to remain vigilant against the creationist insidiousness that takes advantage of such wanton political confusion.
