Oh come on, who of us who use mics in public havent had  at least one near miss with being overheard at thr wrong time?

When we first got our new sound system at LP I hadnt quite got used to the fact that you have to turn it off when you go to the loo or walk outside to meet a funeral party? I know my voice has been heard in places it doesnt need to be heard ( Im far more careful now!)

And who of us hasnt thought critical things of other people but kept our thoughts to ourselves- few can hold their hands up and say they have never been cross with someone and expressed it in private.

Jesus didnt mince his words on occasion – once he had some pretty tought things to say about  the Pharisees ” “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men’s bones and everything unclean” – Matthew 23 v 27. No wonder he ended up crucified.

Im not saying that Mr Brown should have said what he did but I dont think he should beat himself up about it – nor should the media whip it up like they are. None of us are squeeky clean – it could have happened to any of the leaders. And why didnt the guy who was controlling the mic turn the volume off – it was clear this wasnt a public moment when Brown was speaking.
