Did you see Melanie Phillips, Daily Mail columnist, on Question Time last night. She pointed out that most clergy stipends are less than the proposed benefit cap at £26000. LBW for bishops, I think?
I’m obviously not getting out enough. But did you see John Redwood on Wednesday’s Newsnight responding to a question about his understanding of the roots of English nationalism? He suggested that it was rooted in resistance to Europe. I’ve seen enough of nationalism which is founded on negative imaging of others.
