I can see both sides of this situation.

If the house sellers are deeply committed Christians who take their Bible very seriously then no-one - including estate agents and lawyers - should have the right to force them to go against their religious beliefs.

Equally - no-one should have the right to condemn or decriminate against these two yong men because of their sexual preferences.

It would have been better if the house sellers had just said they had sold the house to someone else - but I suppose that would go against their religion as well.

This is a photo of an Australian supermarket taken the other day.

The lefties keep telling us that empty shelves in the UK are because of Brexit.

So, I guess the Aussies must bitterly regret leaving the EU as well!

There is nothing good about work.

Without Work, you get No Respect, No Sense of Purpose and No $$$$$$.

Many countries have had to enforce restrictions due to covid, this thread is not about whether or not you agree or disagree with those decisions.

Boris set restrictions, then ignored them to go to a party, a fairly insignificant party at that. He then repeatedly lied about whether he know about it, then whether he was there, finally coming up with an admission that he WAS there but didn't know it was a social occasion and then finally that he didn't know it was against the rules. Rules that he himself is ultimately responsible for. You would be hard pushed to find WORSE leadership than this.

Then we have Jacinda Arden, the prime minister of New Zealand. New Zealand has has another spike in cases and brought in some restrictions. Whether you agree with them or not, we should all agree that if they're there they should apply to everyone, including and especially, the person who makes the rules. Jacinda has postponed her own wedding due to the restrictions. This is leadership. Boris should take note. A good leader leads by example.

Before we get onto nonsense about "should rules ever be broken", I can understand people disobeying rules they genuinely consider unjust, whether I agree with them or not, but that does not, and can not, apply to the person who actually made the rules.

Two well known authors to sart us off:-

Rain

by Robert Louis Stevenson

The rain is raining all around,
It falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here,
And on the ships at sea.


The Rainy Day

by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the moldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall.
And the day is dark and dreary.

My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the moldering Past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary.

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.
