An Apology on Behalf of the White-English Council of Great Britain

leave a comment »

“This is a truly barbaric act that has no basis in Islam and we condemn this unreservedly. Our thoughts are with the victim and his family. We understand the victim is a serving member of the Armed Forces. Muslims have long served in this country’s Armed Forces, proudly and with honour.”

When in May this year, the Muslim Council of Great Britain issued this apology for the murder of Lee Rigby on behalf of all British Islam, I remembered that many years ago, my brother and I found this apology issued by the lesser known ‘White-English Council of Great Britain’.

The Road

leave a comment »

“Improvement makes straight road; but the crooked
roads without Improvement are roads of Genius”
-William Blake,
The Marriage of Heaven and Hell,1793

There once was a path that led from A to B.
It was a green path, muddy in the winter but passable,
