Ten Years Of Appalling Suffering In Darfur And Longer Perhaps In Other Needy Places!
We need the Presidents and Prime Ministers to take this issue seriously. Much of that suffering and pain could be eased within a few months if man would only stop and pause and think and start to care. Yes, there are other camps in other nations, and there are people rummaging on rubbish tips the world over searching for some food, and government cars drive past these tips on a daily basis. They know what is going on. What they may not know is that one day they are going to have to stand before Almighty God and answer for the ways in which they have acted and the decisions they have made regarding concern and care for the poor – for those who are really poor. There are times when you feel you have something to say and this is one of these moments. For ten years now there has been appalling suffering in Durfur with one and half million people living in camps, and these are figures from the United Nations.

History is replete with leaders who changed the fortunes of their nations and captured the imagination of the world. Cuba had Castro, America had Lincoln, Egypt had Nasser, France had Bonaparte, Britain had Churchill, Vietnam had Ho Chi Min, India had Gandhi, and China had Mao. But none of these lives could be defined by the bonds of love these leaders forged between themselves and children as Mandela’s was.The Case For Listening In On Our Friends
There is a case to be made for why America spies on allies. But it is not a case the president feels like making.Miss England, Torquay 2013 – The Storm Rages On
It’s been a few weeks since The Miss England finals were held in Torquay and the debate they provoked shows no signs of dying down. It seems as if everybody has a view they want to air. On one side are those who think that the event was a retrograde step for Torquay particularly and who oppose beauty pageants more generally. In this camp is the Liberal Democrat Member of Parliament for Torbay, Adrian Sanders.
