ITALY has just had its worst multiple road tragedy in a decade and in Britain we have just witnessed two examples of fatal road rage.
Yet the only response we get from the Christian churches is about a few overseas bishops arguing about condom use. Is it not time that our church leaders made clear statements regarding the moral questions surrounding driving and road-building?
It can't be right that they devote so much attention to sex and the individual and so little to motorisation and the community.
The church leaders have chosen to ignore the violent side of motorisation and its effects on people's quality of life.

I ONCE won a competition in the Mirror by nominating William Waldegrave as Twit Of The Week.
I apologise. He is not a twit. It is all of us out here who are twits for putting up with him.

We know your game
SHERYL Kyle says people should make up their own minds about Gazza and his recent drunken behaviour.
I think most of us have, Sheryl. If there was ever any doubt, his deliberate absence from your side last weekend has wiped that out - what a rat and what a waste of space.

Scandal of wage slave
I WAS shocked to hear that my daughter's 17-year-old friend was working 60 hours a week for an estate agent for just pounds 1 an hour.
If that is not slave labour then what is? The sooner the Government is overthrown the better.

Britons improve with age
I HAVE always believed that Englishwomen age gracefully compared to their fellow American and continental counterparts.
My point was recently proven when lovely Patricia Roc - who was guesting on ITV's This is Your Life - looked beautiful and refined.
Only a few weeks earlier Virginia Mayo, Jane Russell and Ann Miller had appeared looking like tired, painted old dolls.
Poor Brigitte Bardot looked positively haggard.
GETTING ALL FIRED UP ON TOAST
I WAS amused to see a woman on TV who was devastated when she was forced to toast bread on an open coal fire because of a power cut.
In our house a toasting fork is used every day.
If you have never tasted toast made in the old-fashioned way you have never tried the real thing. This method applies to muffins and tea-cakes too.

HOW annoying the lack of public toilets is. I often have to go into a pub, a trip I can hardly afford, in order to relieve myself.
