Here at the Edinburgh Festival, our thoughts turn naturally to France after WWII. The connection is explained by a Christian theologian. And that is my point.

Thank you, thank you. Oh, you're too kind. You really have been a wonderful audience. Thank you.

Yesterday's GCSE results are just the start. As adults we're constantly being examined and reviewed. I'm always being tested to see that I'm still reverend enough.

We all have to make career choices. This is where the Big Book of Magic Stuff is so relevant. It tells us that the Invisible Magic Friend gave us all certain talents. In my case it was how reverend I was. It takes all sorts to make a world. Me, I was hopeless at maths. I was a complete plonker when it came to thinking clearly and logically about purely abstract concepts. That's why I became a reverend.

This is the lesson that yesterday's GCSE failures must learn: if all else fails, you can always become a reverend, like me.

There's just too much suffering in the world for Jesus to do anything about it. If you ask him personally though, he might help you.

Harsh treatment of refugees dehumanises both them and those who treat them harshly. Jesus says so.

It's A-level results time, so we naturally think of St Paul.
