"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

New Comment System In Progress

Bear with me while I faff around switching over to Disqus - something I've been meaning to have a look at for a while now. It's being really slow bringing comments across from Blogger but I suppose we'll get there in the end.

In the meantime you might like to look at THIS . The European Parliament has voted for a compromise solution on labelling halal and shechita food. Instead of the one word ('halal'/'shechita') they've opted for 'slaughtered without stunning', which doesn't really address the problem for those who want to avoid eating meat from an animal that has had its throat cut or a prayer muttered over its dying bones.
However, British officials have indicated that the government will not support the latest call from MEPs.
"British officials"?  Un-named, unattributable and unaccountable, as usual.

UPDATE:   It's done, so we'll see how it works - let me know if you have any problems.  It's supposed to make commenting easier (!).  It has slowed down page-loading time though so I'll have a look to see if I can delete some other gadget to compensate if it proves too much of a pain.

Threads: 2,726

My thanks to everyone who's commented over the years - it wouldn't work without you :-)
