These are the results, now, piss off.

I have noticed that the ‘results’ over the Avebury Child consultation and review are in. This is something I blogasmed about a while back and was rather disparaging of the view of CoBDO and the like.

The wonderful news is that the remains will stay at the museum and fuckwits like CoBDO will not be able to perform their am-dram bullshit over the remains.

The result and associated surveys etc are to be found here, I would recommend the survey that was carried out and the results of it; 91% of people surveyed – with a higher proportion of pagans than in the general population – said that remains should be displayed and be available for research. If this isn’t a mandate for the future to tell CoBDO and it’s ilk to piss off then I don’t know what is.

I will be at the museum this weekend coincidentally and shall make a point of visiting the remains of ‘Charlie’ and be sure to mention t one of the staff that I am glad the result that was reached, was, well, reached.

Sanity has prevailed.

Miss Romanov looks decidedly like someone who once appeared at an Ipswich event many years back, on a lovely summer day, to announce that she was one of those "psychic pianists" who claim to channel the ghosts of dead composers. She was awfully campy, with a couple of mute followers. I wonder if they are the same person?

Truly awesome blogpost, Lee. Thank you!

All of the above, how nice for a cut to the chase for a change, rather than heavy breathing narcisism.

However, despite the fact that most Pagans who responded to the survey saying that that they wanted the remains to remain, this is swiftly becoming another imaginary example of Pagans being discriminated against. It does indeed seem to come from the more emotional kind of Pagan but they have phenomenal power (if not authority). I can't do the ecstatic warbling but suggest that this would be an excellent way in which to communicate the message that bones is bones, since a discussion of theology doesn't seem to work. Who can we call upon?
