Why I sense that God is speaking to both Christians and Jews, telling us we’re in this together
by Charles Gardner
With Israelis recently bombarded by 700 rockets within the space of a single weekend in May, courtesy of terrorist neighbours Hamas, it is well to recall that – 80 years ago – it was the British government pulling the trigger.

Without that change, …

A scandal of subversive statecraft by John Petley
Cast your mind back to summer last year. The Cabinet gathered at the Prime Minister’s country retreat of Chequers, on the sylvan Chiltern downs. There was very important business: Theresa May, flanked by senior civil servant Olly Robbins, presented the draft agreement for Britain’s departure from the EU. For the first time, ministers (including Brexit secretary David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson) saw the proposed terms – and the extent to which May would abide by her pledge of ‘Brexit means Brexit’. The chief whip instructed that nobody could leave without consenting to the Withdrawal Agreement, unless they resigned – and must then find their way home without ministerial transport.

Despite escalating concerns over LGBT lessons in primary schools, ‘Relationships Education’ is set to become compulsory for children aged four upwards from September 2020.
