Miscellany

Here I place miscellaneous pieces that do not fit well elsewhere!

The two pieces here at present are a critique of the judgement of the European Court of Human Rights in the case of Lautsi v. Italy (when under huge political pressure the court’s Grand Chamber totally reversed on appeal a well argued finding against Italy’s law requiring crucifixes to be displayed on every state classroom wall) and an outspokenly hostile review of a book on Humanism by Mark Vernon.

There are also some depressed thoughts on Brexit.
