Tommy Taylor’s SRU

A young man butchered in a London street and the two men who confront the police are shot. Dozens of bystanders look on, but are too afraid to tackle mad men with knives and choppers. The men claim people in their country are being butchered and they are claiming an eye for an eye. Yet … [Read the full story]

The 13th rant – a look into the 21st century

Russia is having a strange troubled start to the year 2013. The concrete cover at Chernobyl is starting to crack up. Then meteors drop down causing damage to six cities, injuring over a thousand people and damaging more than three thousand homes. The cost is estimated in millions. Since the break-up of the Old Russian … [Read the full story]

Tommy Taylor’s SRU

It was Easter last week – do we remember our childhood and the message of Easter, Bible stories and the resurrection of Jesus Christ? Do you remember stories from the Old Testament and the warnings about sin and punishment? Do you really think this is the time for processions supporting gay marriage…for political decisions to … [Read the full story]

There’s going to be more doctors and nurses to boost our hospitals … [Read the full story]

Slipper or slip-up

With the pollies discussing same sex marriages and giving free voting to the MPs, can you then dismiss him for alleged homosexual favours? Once again we seem to have dual standards. The Church and Christians and … [Read the full story]

I don’t believe the way politicians behave today

I have been resting lately gathering my strength  while persuing the news. All bad news lately, Tsunami, floods, fires and radiation leaks. Then of course there are the politicians…I read with interest about the Prime Minister of the UK telLing the police to investigate the disappearance of a young child in Portugal. The police told … [Read the full story]

Dumb revoltion by Tunisia

Did Tunisia just staged the dumbest “revolution” in the history of the world? Under the old regime, it was one of the most liberal places in North Africa. Women dressed how they liked, wine was served with food. Now it’s fast-forwarded to the middle ages with Christians slain and Islamic groups closing red-light districts. A … [Read the full story]
