No.228 Of Tolerating the Intolerable

I was listening to Radio 4 this morning whilst peddling away on the bike in the Legal-Island gym and reading my book (it's on Abraham Lincoln and becoming compulsive reading like every good book should be). Apparently, we are to be congratulated for the British are far more tolerant than we were 20 years ago. This mood of jubilation was tempered somewhat when one commentator came on and reminded us that the comparative survey also indicates that 38% of us still think homosexuality is wrong. Emmm.

Meanwhile our politicians are locked away in Hillsborough attempting to get a definition and system of policing in NI that both sides can tolerate.
