Longtime readers might remember that I have rather strong opinions on the Silver Ring Thing and may be surprised that I haven’t commented on the recent news stories about them. I’ve been following the stories closely, but I’ve been a bit to busy on other stuff to compose a coherent blog entry on the subject.
But, luckily for me, Unity from The Ministry of Truth has been delving into the story and has published a fascinating piece containing many facts that the mainstream media seem to have ignored – including the fact that Lydia Playfoot (the girl who is protesting her right to wear the ring at school) is the daughter of two of the organisers of the UK branch of SRT. So a cynical person might conclude that this is all a publicity stunt.
It’s a great piece of journalism and deserves a wider audience.
Update: Bloody hell. There’s more.
