  • Lytham Ladies 1 Lancaster 3

    AFTER last weeks fine cup win Lytham struggled to get going and were fortunate not to concede more goals against a well organised Lancaster team. The second half was a much closer contest without the problem caused by the fierce sun set in the first half, but Lytham failed to finish off some well worked attacks and Lancaster scored their third goal on the break. With 15 minutes to go Ruth Blackburn scored from a well worked penalty corner drill. Lytham then worked hard to reduce the deficit but it was all too much too late. read more

  • It would be better to tackle the real issues raised

    THERE seems to be an interesting debate brewing over the legitimacy of the belief in a historical Jesus Christ. Mr Windle began by claiming that Jesus was a myth and then responded to my reply by suggesting that I had a misguided belief in the "eye witness" accounts which have been passed down initially verbally (as the first disciples were not educated men) over a very short time scale. Mr Windle quite rightly states that the gospels were written some time, approximately 100 years after Christ's death - 100 years ago Queen Victoria died and I'm sure no-one would think twice if I attempted to make sense of her actions by writing a book based upon stories passed down through the families of people that worked for her. The details may be slightly contradictory, but the gist would still be historically relevant. read more

  • Opium of the masses

    SINCE the Socialist Party of Great Britain are good communists, perhaps they will also write to point out that it is not only Christianity that is wrong, but presumably all other religions as well - obviously, Mohammed, Buddha, Confucius and so on never existed either. Or is there a hidden agenda here? read more
