Give the Devil the benefit of the law?

Robert Bolt:

Roper: So now you’d give the Devil benefit of law!

More: Yes. What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?

Roper: I’d cut down every law in England to do that!

More: Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned ’round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country’s planted thick with laws from coast to coast– man’s laws, not God’s– and if you cut them down—and you’re just the man to do it—do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I’d give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety’s sake.

Thoughtful words - grief

As part of the comment on the cot death storyline in Eastenders Giles Fraser had an article in The Guardian with a very interesting quote

For there is no version of "it is going to be all right" that can work in circumstances such as these - nothing religious, no homespun wisdom about time being a great healer, no kindly meant distraction. Few people have the confidence to walk empty-handed into the pain of another and be prepared to do nothing other than accompany them in their grief.

1904, Conservative, Communism

Great article in The Guardian with Bo Jo on apparently sparkling form

For example

"The Tory mayor said he was determined to spark a cycling renaissance in London. In 1904, 20% of all journeys in the city were made by bike, he said, 'and if you can't turn the clock back to 1904, what's the point of being a Conservative?'"



"'It took a Conservative mayor to do a deeply, deeply communist thing.'"
