Vive la difference?

The doctors that we now have to act as voices for under the General Managers’ Council reporting restrictions wish to add their voices to ours and others across the world and express our sorrow at the cowardly murders of fellow human beings in France.

Terrorism takes many forms be it religious or political and suppression of freedom of speech or expression is common to both and is ultimately counterproductive as anyone who has resided in the UK for a few years will know. Remember Mrs. Thatcher’s attempts to deny Gerry Adams the right to be heard on television by using an actor to voice his words?

That worked so well as has the shooting of those at Charlie Hebdo as can be seen by the response of their fellow cartoonists.

Did we forget the widespread demonstrations worldwide?

Karl Marx wrote that religion is the opium of the people and it is said that money is the root of all evil. Perhaps it should be that religious or political dogma is the root of all evil for those who believe in it and dictate it can do no wrong for they write the rules and believe that they are above the rule of law.

We hope forlornly that there will be no misguided back lash against those of a particular religious persuasion the vast majority of whom like most of mankind will be harmless and not represented by a mindless few.

There will be no Praise be to the Party this time as their organs are doing what the murderers in France attempted to do but just use different weapons. 
A comment.

Je suis Charlie, nous sommes Charlie, vous êtes . . . ?
