For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Is handoff still officially supported by Overcast? I actually used to use it quite a lot between my iPhone and iPad, but it doesn’t ever seem to work any more.

It’s almost like he was on to something, that Mr Peel.

Don’t like the militarisation of police in the US? See number 1. Don’t like police using violence against peaceful protests? See numbers 4 and 6. Don’t like police “taking a knee” to express solidarity with protestors? See number 5.

A good time to re-read Peel’s nine principles of policing. Worth noting that almost all criticisms of the police, from the Left or the Right, UK or US, that I have heard in the past few days, can be expressed in terms of deviations from these principles.

“This country’s planted thick with laws from coast to coast – man’s laws, not God’s – and, if you cut them down d’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”

My students use Microsoft Surface pens, and I’ve had comments from several that it doesn’t seem to work particularly well with the whiteboard. Scrolls the page rather than writes properly. Difficult to test without hardware perhaps, but thought I should let you know. Thanks.

As part of a surrealist running joke and general undergraduate japes, Richard and I once wrote to him to invite him to our fictional “Oxford University Purnellophonics Society”. He declined to reply, and then promptly resigned from the cabinet.

As so often when reading Scruton, I had the strong sense that he was telling me something I already knew but was failing to articulate; one of the great things I found about reading him was that he so often explained my own thoughts to me & gave me a way of understanding them.

In my Glorious Rule all buildings taller than St Paul’s Cathedral will be banned and yes that will be retrospective.

My Grand Unified Theory of Modern Architecture is that it is fundamentally an atheist project: no one could in good conscience construct such buildings if they believed or even suspected that God might be watching.

Weird bug: I write blog posts in Drafts for a Jekyll blog. The metadata is contained at the top of the document between two sets of three hyphens: --- title: My Title date: 2020-04-24 --- When I paste into Working Copy, the hyphens get merged together. Any ideas?

In the light of this new knowledge, it is with regret that I must hereby revoke all feelings of patriotism and loyalty to the country where I live. Thank you for liberating me from the yoke of belonging based on lies and ignorance.
