Sorry to be a bit off-topic, but the University of California Television have another interesting one of one our kin...

On this edition of Conversations with History, UC Berkeley's Harry Kreisler talks with writer Christopher Hitchens. They talk about writing, dissent, and the challenge of taking on cultural icons.

Excellent news... I don't know if there was a proper way to have complained to Youtube about the takedown, but I emailed press@youtube.com
I think I'll email again to show some support, encouragement and thanks for doing the right thing.

Update from Islington Council:

Thank you for your email expressing concern about the outcome of the Tribunal case concerning Lillian Ladele. I can confirm that the Council has decided to appeal the Tribunal's decision and will be lodging its appeal shortly. It is unlikely, however, that we will have a hearing date in the near future. In the meantime, please accept my assurance that the Council remains committed to providing high quality services to all its residents, whoever they are.

Yours sincerely,

It beggars belief...

This from The Christian Institute
http://www.christian.org.uk/news/20080710/christian-registrar-wins-discrimination-case/

"The case was financed by The Christian Institute. Its Head of Communications, Mike Judge, said: "This important ruling confirms that gay rights should not be treated as trumping religious rights..."

"Trumping"? As in Top Trumps? More like a Get out of jail free card!
