It is that time of year again, the clamour in the yard is feckawful right now, even so, after 25 years you instinctively dread the silence when it ends.

A cheap way for a little cadre of corruption behind a mask of religious fanaticism to indenture support from equally corrupt elements within Nationalism, Feminism and Political LGBT for a season.
…and all you have to do is torture and destroy a few lives that never mattered in the first place anyway. Nobody will even notice, much less care, after all, isn’t covert genocide the UK strategy for reducing disability and disadvantage these days anyway?
Saving the children of course, but they can easily be coerced into adoption before they have to suffer any real privation…as long as they are under 7…after that?

Good thing “those women” are never likely to be the neighbours of any Good Christians/Nationalists/Radfems isn’t it? Because if they were, some of the punishments for “bearing false witness” are well into “only after the watershed” territory.
Good thing, even so, nobody was silly enough to place any false witness under the seal of oath.
