Politics waddled behind, it seems that Lord Falconer has criticised Prime Minister Gordon Brown, telling how his reputation has been fractured in light of the recent potential election storm, however Goverment Ministers have rallied behind him. It seems this will be a difficult week for Labour, with "the tricky issue of Europe" to deal with.

A long feature next on Barack Obama, an American political candidate with "rock star status", tipped as the "new JFK". Images of BO frolicking in swimming costume with young ladies were displayed, however we moved on to Hilary Clinton before hearing how Barak is a hit in the "well heeled suberbs", but not in South Carolina, where "the poorest voters in the country" reside. We travelled there to see a poor man cycling and a single parent or two. It reminded me of the road from the Wizard of Oz and we too were reminded - about the Civil Rights movement, - black and white images of demonstrators were shown. There was mention of "a moses generation - a previous generation" before hearing that "blacks want one thing, whites want another". To close, we were told of an entire BBC programme covering this story - to be broadcast this week. Lewis Hamilton anyone ?

A Sunday story next, that of a "medieval jigsaw puzzle", an ancient church which has been rebuit and restored after falling into disrepair. For the first time in hundreds of years the "little Welsh church" was finally utilised yesterday, we saw the congregation "packed into it, just as they would have done in the middle ages". In its life there have been "many changes, from catholicism through to reformation"; another coming perchance ?
sport to close, again much talk of England, the rugby, and Paris.
