There Is Probably No Driver

The Agnostic Bus continues to stir up trouble - though so far it's only been in a dotty English kind of way (come on, 'spokesmen for the Muslim community' - aren't you offended yet? What's wrong with you?). I like the quote from the bus driver: 'I felt I could not drive that bus, I told my managers and they said they hadn't got another bus and I thought I better go home, so I did.' Not exactly Old Testament stuff, is it? And then there's the sheer gall of the spokeswoman for the British Humbug (sorry, Humanist) Association: 'I have difficulty understanding why people with particular religious beliefs find the expression of a different sort of belief to be offensive.' That's rich, for an organisation entirely defined by its opposition to one particular sort of belief.


  1. What a clever new excuse for a days skiving, "I refuse to treat that patient, he's carrying a copy of the Bible / Koran / The Origin of the Species. I'll be at home if you need me."

  2. The BHA looks to be an Establishment ginger group judging by some of the prominent members they list. It could be straight out of the Garrick Club or a telephone directory in Tuscany. "Probably" best not to pay them any attention. Then come the Revolution, comrades, we will know where to find them ...

  3. A fiver for a linen musette ! that's ungodly.
