Championing the Truth

I’ve written before about what I called the Belief Police. See last post here. You may want to reference it after reading the following. So . . . Poor Sarah Champion, Labour MP. She felt the need to resign from the shadow cabinet after…

SHORT AND SWEET – 12

Authority. I have a love/hate relationship with this word. Instinctively I dislike it intensely. I misbehaved at school. Rather a lot. I couldn’t stand being told what to do. I wasn’t disrespectful, but I lived in my own world and authority figures cramped my…

SHORT AND SWEET
