The Queen of England is 90. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA 2016 v10n1p0421

The Queen of England is also the Queen of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, plus Australia, New Zealand, and a handful of other countries. When she became queen over 60 years ago, she had more subjects. Which is beside the point.

The real point is that the queen has kept going, kept healthy, kept working until she was 90, and gives no signs of stopping. I have not seen her use a walker or in any way give an indication that age is slowing her down. She is the longest-lived monarch in British history, and has reigned the longest.

Happy birthday Queen Elizabeth II!!!!

The white rabbit SJ Dodgson MJoTA 2016 v10n1p0601

My grandfather's uncle Campbell Dodgson CBE was the Oxford tutor of the love of Oscar Wilde, Lord Arthur Douglas, whom Uncle Campbell introduced. Uncle Campbell always wore white suits and was dropping things and looking at his pocket watch. 

My brothers and I were told by various Dodgson men that Uncle Campbell was likely the model for the white rabbit in a book written by another Oxford Dodgson, a third cousin of Uncle Campbell and my great grandfather. Which is impossible, Alice in Wonderland was published before Uncle Campbell was born. I am quite sure Uncle Campbell irritated his third cousin immensely. I know Dodgsons.

Uncle Campbell married the daughter of Professor Spooner, who invented Spoonerisms, and was the curator of prints at the British Museum for about 50 years. He was an expert on Duehrer. He died 2 years before I was born. Campbell Dodgson click here.
Episcopal Church kicked out. SJ Dodgson MJoTA 2016 v10n1 p0114

Just when we thought the British Empire could not collapse any further, it did, today, when Anglican priests gathered at Canterbury and voted to boot out America. So there. Or rather, the Episcopal Church, which is, or was until today, the closest relative in the United States to the worldwide Anglican communion. Anglicans in the US will disagree with me, but look at the numbers. The Anglican church is nothing like as large as the Episcopal church, which owns lots of churches, lots of property.

And why? Because, like the Republic of Ireland, the whole Republic of Ireland, the Episcopal Church recognizes, and celebrates, all marriages between committed humans.

Aagh. The Anglican Church is the religion of my fathers, in fact, I was christened into the Anglican Church in Ireland, and confirmed Anglican in Australia. Many of my relatives have been priests, for example, a former Bishop of Norwich click here, and my relatives are priests to this day. 

This homophobia is not universal with Anglican priests. A prominent Anglican priest, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, wants us all to treat all humans with respect, and rejoiced when his daughter, a priest, married her partner. Archbishop Tutu click here.

We need young persons coming up through the ranks of the Anglican Church to right this wrong. Kick out the Americans by all means, but learn to love one another. We are all we have.

Unions call denial of minimum wage to North Sea workers ‘national disgrace’

Official pay guidance won’t apply beyond 12-miles in UK waters, leaving out most crews dismantling oil and gas rigs

Unions have said it is a “national disgrace” that workers dismantling old North Sea oil and gas rigs will be paid less than the minimum wage, despite new promises by ministers to protect people working in UK waters.

The government issued guidance on Thursday that it said would ensure seafarers, people who are based on vessels as opposed to fixed installations like an oil platform, receive the minimum wage.

Phone-hacking cases against Murdoch papers settled at last minute

Confidential settlement of cases against Sun and News of the World raises difficult issues for future hacking cases, judge says

Phone-hacking cases brought by Vic Reeves, Kate Thornton and two others against Rupert Murdoch’s Sun and News of the World have been confidentially settled, just as a six-week trial was due to hear allegations of a cover up by senior executives at the media mogul’s British tabloids.

The last-minute deal on Thursday earned both sides a rebuke from Mr Justice Mann, who complained that issues important to another 47 hacking cases in the pipeline had not been determined in a case that would have heard allegations of wrongdoing by James Murdoch and Rebekah Brooks.

Gypsies and Travellers in UK face housing crisis, charities warn

Shortage of authorised sites leads to reported rise in unofficial encampments

The UK is in the midst of a “housing crisis” among its nomadic communities, charities have warned, due to a shortage of authorised sites for Gypsies and Travellers to set up on.

The crisis has led to a reported rise in Gypsies and Travellers setting up unauthorised encampments in car parks and on playing fields, often enraging locals. In turn, local authorities, police and MPs across the country have called for increased eviction powers to move people on when they settle their caravans.

Supermarkets under pressure to reveal amount of plastic they create

Leading UK retailers say information is too ‘commercially sensitive’ to reveal, following Guardian report they make almost 1m tonnes a year

Supermarkets are coming under growing pressure from politicians and campaigners to reveal the amount of plastic they create, and pay more towards its safe disposal, following a Guardian investigation.

Amid mounting concern about the devastating environmental impact of plastic pollution around the globe, the Guardian revealed on Wednesday that the UK’s leading supermarkets create almost 1m tonnes of plastic packaging waste every year.
