A couple of random things that have been in my head for the last few days but haven’t coalesced into anything long enough to post by themselves-
We need leaders, but what we get are politicians.
Fundamentalist levels of danger: individually, Islamic fundamentalists are more evil, but they’re not going to destroy our society unless we help them. Collectively, Christian fundamentalists are far more dangerous, because they exert an influence on the US and other western governments far out of proportion to their grasp on reality.
Plus- I just challenged the Daily Express to send me a journalist I could take cycling around Manchester. I don’t think they will, but you never know until you try. Next week the Daily Mail.
