In the mind of Tony Blair!

Surrounded by secret e-mail equipment, no doubt concealing the rougher side of political life, Tony Blair announces that Catholic adoption agencies will get "21 months to prepare for change", and this is a "sensible compromise". 21 months to do what exactly? Close down? or turn the Church's social teaching on its head?

He says "there can be no exemptions for faith-based adoption agencies offering public funded services from regulations that prevent discrimination." So? If they don't accept public funds, can they carry on as normal? Can pigs fly? The answer is no on both counts. Because the "public money" canard was irrelevant to start with.

I hope he has some kind secular social workers lined up or some whose beliefs have been tempered to suit the World's workings, to take over from the societies that have been pilloried. Yes, the children come first. When was it a case that they didn't?

Tony Blair is quite capable of making the word perversion mean what it literally means. Turned through. A good definition of the word (other than that which is most often used) is - "diversion from the true meaning or proper purpose". Now that's what's happened here!
