Politics can make a difference and still be civilised

Compare and contrast

From the Guardian letters page yesterday. A woman writing from outside the political bubble said that her mother had her funeral on the same day and at the same time as the 'non-State' one held in London. Each funeral used the same quote from St John. In her family affair, the passage was quoted as, ‘In my father’s house there are many rooms..’ 

Whereas the lesson read by Cameron had this, ‘In my father’s house there are many mansions..’ 

Following a really divisive period it is good to see something which gladdens the heart. New Zealand became the 13th country to legalise gay marriage. Click on the link to see how politics can be done.
