Herring Fishery Score

Good news, Richard Herring's Christ on a Bike is coming to the Marina Theatre, Lowestoft, on 28 April. Having been in a cocoon of Dawsonage for the last few months, I failed to notice this in the list of upcoming attractions, so I am grateful to Reverend Kyle Paisley of Oulton Broad Free Presbyterian Church for bringing the "infantile" and apparently blasphemous production to my attention. The Rev Paisley (now there's a name that cries tolerance and understanding, dontchathink?) plans to lead a protest outside the theatre. Good luck to him. It's a free country (still, just about). However, his fulmination has resulted in at least one extra ticket sale for Mr Herring, namely mine. What's that about the law of unintended consequences?

AV in Colour

I can't fault a word of Beetwaste's analysis of the AV debate. I'm in favour and will be voting accordingly. AV isn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but it's an improvement on what we have. Also, a win for the no side of things will kill the debate on electoral form for a generation or more, as the victors present rejection of AV as a comprehensive rejection of any sort of change.
