get busy livin' or get busy Brian

Having scoffingly questioned Brian Haw's commitment to the cause when I visited Parliament Square the other week and found him conspicuous by his absence, I now discover that he had a fairly reasonable excuse, which is that he was in Germany in the early stages of dying at the time, and completed the job today. Sorry about that.

I should add that while I salute his persistence in his desire to hold the government to account for the Iraq war, and to uphold the principles of freedom of speech and protest that allowed him to do so, I note with weary lack of surprise that he was driven to do so by "his evangelical Christian faith". Still, even a stopped clock, and so on and so forth.
