On Tuesday morning the Railways were taken into government control - See It, Say It, Sorted.
Also yesterday, Halifax independent T J Walsh ...
It is so refreshing to be able to report on a bus company that believes in informing ALL its passengers and potential passengers. Cheery chappie Grant Palmer produces amazingly excellent material which formed the basis for yesterday's intruductory blog.
Was this the end for the tiny remaining nation, now called Judah?
No - because the Assyrians suddenly packed up their siege engines and went home. No good reason, they just skiddaddled!
Miracle indeed! Praise the Lord; Hallellujah; Great Rejoicing : God is Good (etc.)
But it didn't last. Judah had quickly sunk back into social, moral and legislative decline. Hence Habbie's complaint to God. Why don't You do something?"
So God told him what he would do.
I am bringing the Babylonians to power, those fierce, restless people. They are marching out across the world to conquer other lands. They spread fear and terror, and in their pride they are a law to themselves.
Their horses are faster than leopards, fiercer than hungry wolves. Their cavalry troops come riding from distant lands; their horses paw the ground. They come swooping down like eagles attacking their prey.
Didn't go down too well ...
