Merciless Madness

Lunatic Leadership

Nonsensical Fine

A man who pulled in to a bus stop to help a homeless man on Christmas Day when there were no buses running was fined by a council.

Lee Williamson stopped to give a homeless man a blanket, hat, gloves, scarf, food, and chat to him. He pulled into the bus stop because with no traffic on the road and no buses running he was using his own sense of safety to determine that no harm would come of it.

He later received a £70 fine, despite there being no buses on 25th December. The council is relentless.

What nonsense. Another ‘rules is rules’ nail in the coffin of humanity.

It is exactly this lack of mindfulness in decision making that reduces our ability to be merciful.

I’m thinking about funding this week. Running the Centre for Peaceful Solutions has been a tightrope walk of balancing fundraising and delivering projects. We’ve had a lot of support and we’ve worked really hard to keep going. I’m realising that fundraising is the never ending task that means there is never a time when all the work is done.
