There have been no posts on here for a week or so as I have been in Northern Ireland conducting some PhD research, as well as having a family holiday in the process.
All this means I have not been able to reply to comments (an hour in a Belfast internet cafe costs £2.60!) or to edit some of he spammers who like to visit this site advertising viagra and cheap loans. Normal service has now been resumed.
Oh and I believe the anti-Pope march in London was both well attended and had an excellent crowd in terms of composition. I am sorry to have missed it.
