No, no, no...

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Is Scientology on the verge of snaring itself an unlikely new recruit? If you believe what you read in the, err, celebrity gossip columns of the Sunday tabloids, troubled singer Amy Winehouse could be about to jump on board in order to try the Church's Narconon drugs rehabilitation programme. Here's the word on the grapevine, or what "a source" told a journalist:
“She had a call from the celebrity branch of the Church Of Scientology. She thinks they got her number through one of the American music producers who worked on her Back to Black album. They told her they wanted to help her beat drugs and could tailor-make a programme so she wouldn’t have to go to a residential centre. She liked that idea because her husband Blake is out of prison soon and wouldn’t want to be away from him when he’s finally freed.”

Core constitutional issues such as freedom of speech and freedom of religion are central to the dispute.
