The Public Order Act is not just about maintaining our racial and religious "harmony". Harmony can be maintained, if it must, with the existing laws, as they always have been maintained, with a grip so ironical that one wonders if our vaunted "harmony" even exists.
I found an island in your arms,
a country in your eyes,
arms that chain, eyes that lie.
Break on through to the other side.

WILLAM GOLDING was a Nobel Prize-winning author. His most famous work is Lord of the Flies, a novel which I studied for my GCE O-level Literature exams many years ago. The title is actually a reference to the Hebrew name Beelzebub (literally, "god of the fly", "Lord of Flies"), a name sometimes used as a synonym for Satan.
