This weekend has some historic anniversaries :
In 1773 the British Government passed the Tea Act, removing duties on tea shipped to America by the East India Company and leading indirectly to the Boston Tea Party;
in 1828 the London Zoological Gardens opened in Regent's Park;
in 1968 the Abortion Act, presented by David Steel, MP, came into force.
What a combination.
The only one which has been of any value and did not cause horrendous outcomes for many people was the opening of London Zoo.
Memory eternal to all the unborn innocents who have lost their lives in the 40 years that deliberate killing of children has been legal in Britain.
