SA. Thank you for your kind words, but I cannot claim courage as a quality really. I share almost all of your thoughts, in particular the truly bestial treatment of Corbyn. But perhaps we should not give up hope altogether for the perpetuity of that which is honourable, decent and loving in our species. It is a strand that has managed to survive through some terrible periods in the past, even though it never quite triumphs over ‘evil’. Such things are beyond our knowledge I suppose, but I am curiously reminded of that Tolkien quote, in Lord of the Rings!
“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
