We will remember them

This morning, I attended the civic Remembrance Service at the Fairfield Halls followed by the laying of wreaths at the memorial outside the Town Hall.

It was fantastic to see so many people there - the last veteran of the great war may now have passed away and there are fewer and fewer veterans of the Second World War each year but it is vital that we continue to remember the sacrifices that those who fought in these wars and more recent conflicts have made for our freedom today. As usual, Canon Colin Boswell gave a wonderful sermon, this year touching on the moving story of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Westminster Abbey.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
