All Quiet on the Shiraz Front

I'm a novice at this blogging game, but I understand that in order to keep interest up, you should try to post at least something every day (Eric Lee - an expert- told me that, so it must be true). So I wonder why my two esteemed colleagues have let things here lapse, since my post on Catholicism? I also hope that the Priest will not excommunicate me if I give a plug to a rival: over at "Dave's Part" (see link to "Dave Osler", on the right), there is an hilarous discussion about the SWP's line on Somalia. Go and have a look, and check out the comments- especially those of the unbelievable "Paddy Garcia" (who I do not accuse of being a member of the SWP: even they are not *that* bad) and the wonderful "stroppybird".

By the way: the Priest tells me he is actively in search of contributors to this blog: he wants a (preferably sane) Eustonite and an "anti-Imperialist", broadly of the (gawd-help-us) SWP variety, but (obviously) not actually a member - as a member wouldn't be allowed to join a blog like this. I've persuaded an ex work colleague who used to be in the 'Militant' Tendency and is now a Christian (!) and Eustonite(!!) to join the team: but if you think you might fit the bill, contact the Priest.

You post the odd comment here. You up for it? No censorship I promise, unless your post puts me in danger of being shut down.

btw like the post on religion.

I find the move towards religion in sections of the left strange and consider my views as an athesist should be viewed as valid as others. This is one area that I have a lot of time for Hitch on.
