The Empire strikes back

Those colonials have been at it again, stealing babies! Twenty years of government approved baby snatching. You might think this is a story from those Arabic State but no, the British Empire, actually it is Australia.
'Prime Minister Julia Gillard has issued an apology to people affected by Australia's forced adoption policy between the 1950s and 1970s.'
Julia said, 'Tens of thousands of babies of unmarried, mostly teenage mothers, were thought to have been taken by the state and given to childless married couples.'
This is an era of apologies, David Cameron did it in Ireland, many South Africans have been down that route but it does bring it home when we consider what we did in service of the British Empire and those not qualified to govern did just that.
This is still going on, much more subtlety but going on none the less. BBC interviewer Kate Hummable asking women of the nomadic tribes in the desert, what there home life is all about and what the sex is about. Why? Just for a story, a petty gain for the interviewer but if the men hear about it the woman will be beaten, even ostracised, in some cases killed. One day the MP for the BBC will probably apologies. What the cost?
Saying that there are too many people on this world of ours and as my mum always said, 'Man will devour all, even himself in the end'. Maybe those in the desert with their ancient family ways and practises will survive us all.
Spoke to Mark and he is doing well, good to hear from him and also know he is slowly getting to grips with modern technology, Skype and Samsung Galaxy Tablet, it is like magic.
Had dinner with the Fay's last night and was pleased to see Jessica with her boyfriend. He is taller than her, good breeding there! Peter is now working for that favourite of all companies, Tesco.
Great photograph Angela sent of Matt trying to fly.
