Leader comment

Welcome to our world

Leader: What was really radical about this synod was the publication of voting figures for each clause in the final document. From this we discover that a significant minority, 62 to 118, voted against the watered-down statement about homosexual people

NHS in crisis

Leader: THE next General Election will not be won on the issue of health. Prominence will be given to the economy (correctly), welfare (ideally), immigration (regrettably), and personality (disastrously)

A hard landing

Leader: The trouble with growth, unless is it accompanied by environmental regulation and technical innovation, is that carbon emissions grow proportionately

War in stages

Leader: It is possible that the UK will find itself involved in a war of indeterminate length without ever really having agreed to it

An important game

Leader: People need to be particularly hard of heart to shun political or religious opponents after they have played against them on the sports field

After the fire

Leader: Like the world's climate, the charity sector appears to be experiencing more extreme giving patterns

Bearing costs in mind

Leader: Few outside the medical profession know the extent of mental illness as well as teachers and the clergy: teachers, because all life passes through their classrooms; clergy, because, with good fortune, those who are distressed are often drawn to churches

Poor constitution

Leader: The public in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland are beginning to wake up to the fact that a General Election is taking place on 18 September - and that they are not invited into the polling booths

History, nature, and the human touch

Leader: Stone and wood; earth and water. Natural elements predominate in a setting like Boughton, and their influence on festivalgoers last weekend was profound

Violence in St Louis

Leader: The presence of pastors and congregation members among the protesters in Feguson is welcomed, but TV images of heavily armed troops battling with looters will send the wrong message

Atrocities in Iraq

Leader: The conduct of Islamic State militants makes the moral choices in Iraq very simple - simpler than they have been in the past.
