Yesterday the New World Order* briefly came to Sheffield. Or, to be more accurate, it didn't.
The Bomb Squad was called in to deal with 13 'devices' found in a house in Netheredge. Netheredge is an interesting area, divided between very affluent whites and significantly less affluent West Asian Muslims, and Terrorist Cell was the 'obvious' first port-of-call for the local media...but it turns out the police think it more likely to be home-made fireworks.

It makes you think though (unless, apparently, you're a journalist). There are real issues raised by two cultures living side-by-side; issues that get ever more complex the more cultures are added...And I don't think domestic nationalism (UKIP, BNP) or international aggression (Bush-Blair) are the answer! I do, however, endorse "A New Confession of Christ in a World of Violence" as a constructive contribution to the present climate. Check it out for yourself, and see what you think.
*exactly the same as the Old World Order; only the technologies change.
