Apology, please Mr Kinnock

Editorial begins: "The Labour party is revelling the new found confidence of an Opposition which is at last recovering from its third successive electoral defeat. The consequent euphoria, however, has led its leader to stray from the paths of accepted invective." It suggests that Mr Kinnock will not suffer the fate of Salman Rushdie but an apology is in order.

M E Parnell to Bishop: Complaint about Fr Delaney's behaviour towards her; asking for the Bishop to intervene

Did the Bishop inform Fr Delaney warning that she is a nuisance writing reams of pages which the Bishop drops in the waste bin? She states that Fr Delaney is spreading scandal about her and saying she has left the mission. She states that Fr Delaney would be better attending to his duties instead of visiting the picture house with his nieces and his maid (19, called by him a "housekeeper"). People of Aldeburgh horrified that he went to the pictures twice during Holy Week (Monday and Maundy Thursday). She encloses a cheque - the proceeds of a sale for Fr Delaney - and asks the Bishop to forward it to the priest. She has a number of other, serious, concerns which she wants to tell to the Bishop (but cannot get to Northampton due to her Gout) if he or a representative could come, she will share them.

Neil Kinnock - a slave to fashion

Commenting that Kinnock has fallen into "the all-too easy trap of treating Christians as something rather quaint and amusing, the butt of cheap puns. And cheap is very much the tone of Mr Kinnock's attack."
The leader suggests the time is right for a reform of antiquated blasphemy laws - being unworkable. Perhaps Christians should turn the other cheek?
