BBC: Sikh girl wins bangle law battle
As I noted when this story first came to the fore this is pathetic. I would now advise all children in schools with a no-jewellery restriction similar to Aberdare's Girls School to wear whatever the hell they want to School now. If anyone challenges you, just say that your religious faith demands that you wear them between the hours of 9am and 3.30pm every weekday. Call your faith whatever you want, I hear that the Flying Spaghetti Monster and Invisible Pink Unicorn are popular these days but you can make your own up. If the school claims that you're just making it up take them to the High Court where I'm sure Mr Justice Silber will agree that it is not the School's place to determine what is a real religion and what is not!
BBC: AMs reject organ 'consent' scheme
This is another story that grabbed my attention recently. Unfortunately the Health, Wellbeing and Local Government Committee has voted against recommending a system of presumed consent by 6 votes to 3. Wimps.
Congratulations to Plaid Cymru AM's Helen Mary Jones and Dr Dai Lloyd and Lib Dem AM Jenny Randerson for voting for presumed consent. Tories Jonathan Morgan and Nick Ramsay should be ashamed of themselves, along with Labour AM's Lorraine Barrett, Irene James, Ann Jones and Val Lloyd.
I'm glad to say though that after writing my earlier post on this topic, I registered as an Organ donor straight away!
