For some reason (ahem!) a memory came to my mind of an incident way back in the late 1960s/early 1970s when an aunt of mine told me that her husband had to give his permission for her to have a hysterectomy. So whose womb was it?!!!!! Anyway,  having checked to see if my memory was fabricating things or indeed that all this did indeed take place, I checked. And yep! It sure did more than ...

Let's look at this controlling of women, by men, in this country. At present day Christian marriage ceremonies do women still promise to 'obey' their husbands? Surely if you promise to obey someone then that means the other person has control over you. And as I'm on the subject of marriage. Why is the bride 'given away'? "Who giveth this woman to this man?"

I have asked both on this forum and in the local press for reasons why there should be a playpark on the lawn. I asked this because whilst I am genuinely open to persuasion I have yet to hear an argument that will convince me.  There was no response on this forum and no response in the letters page of the Gazette to my question. At the moment the only arguments that I have heard for a playpark ...

Why shouldn't speakers of language A speak it amongst themselves? I am sure all those native English speakers who are immigrants to other non English speaking countries speak in English amongst themselves. The issue surely is whether or not immigrants to this country should be able to/be encouraged to be able to, speak the language of the country in which they now live as well as their native ...
