Not exactly good news this link, but the threat to Coptic Christians hasn't lessened overnight: http://uk.news.yahoo.com/22/20110104/tts-uk-egypt-church-ca02f96.html
Less worryingly (or maybe not), I have forgotten to admit to having been elected Shop Steward at work. That blooming Bolshevik hat of mine is to blame I am sure! if nothing else it commits me to occasional attendance at Staff/Management forums. It was really a case of "We need Union representation - who's in it? (Moi and 2 others admitted to it) Who's willing (or not up for promotion in other words)? - Er, me. Will you do it? (Oh, OK). Seems to happen to Worker Priests - I know a nice monk who is an Old Etonian and a Baronet to boot who was an NUM Shop Steward:-). Come the revolution, they'll still probably shoot me - wrong sort of Revolutionary!
