Hooray for Clifford Longley, and his great and brave defence of that fine MP Jon Cruddas.
As Mr Longley very rightly said in that fine Catholic magazine, The Tablet,
"Would it not be reasonable for Catholic MPs to want to take into account the damage to respect for democracy and the rule of law that would follow if the criminalisation of all abortion had somehow been forced through Parliament in defiance of public opinion?"
Destroy Democracy for a blob of tissue that may have a cleft-palate, or flat feet or something? For a life (as the much-maligned Adolf Hitler remarked) that is not worth living?
Mr Longley, the editor of the Tablet, John Cruddas,
I salute you.
Just keep 'em coming!
