Centuries later the presumed victory of the leaders of the Catholic Church over Galileo Galilei looks very much like a hollow victory that discredits and ridicules the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church tried to impose its dogma regardless of scientific facts that clearly indicated that planet Earth was not the centre of the Universe.
Something similar occurs in today's politics when it comes to demographics. Can the present political status quo be maintained despite demographic changes? Some people adopt the Catholic Church's position and I am very much inclined to support Galileo Galilei's position.
London is nothing like the rest of the country and the speed of change is so dramatic that change is spreading to other parts of the United Kingdom at rising speeds.
