STOP Female Genital Mutilation (FGM / ‘cutting’) in Britain

I had a look on Joe Daniels blog 300words and found an e-petition about FGM and signed it and now I ask you to do the same. Our government wont do anything about this practice unless  the pressure is kept up so please campaign  to stop FGM. Sign the petition here

Team GB football

Just watched first half and Team GB is 1 nil up, not a bad half for either team. I cant wait  to see the opening ceremony tomorrow and the games to start proper. Just seen the BBC.CO.UK/SPORT website has become even better with interactive catch-up and HD

Twitter is down

I have tried about five times and it timed out. I wanted to tweet the last post but cant if you read this tweet it for me the more the question is asked the likely it is to get an end to FGM

FGM is child abuse

Tell me why the government (little g intended they need to act on this before the obtain a capital) cant prosecute parents who still violate this abuse upon young girls. If a child had its ears cut off by a parent, that parent would be in court faster than a proverbial bullet. But take a knife to a young girl and Mutilate her and then everybody closes ranks and say it is a cultural thing. Sacrificing virgins and abandoning girls on rubbish tips were cultural things in Rome but neither are done today so why do we not stop this illegal but historic practice? Because the govenment is scared? because they are deaf? because they are burying their heads in the sand? I have no idea why but all the time it is not made a prioity I will ask?

Olympic torch

I was to ill to go and see the torch but I have got loads of photos that my son took, I know its not the same as being there but what can I do. I am looking forward to the games, I know there has been a lot of hype about security and G4s or whatever they are called but I dont see it being much of a problem now the Army are involved. I know we are a nation of knockers but lets just sit back and count the medals.
