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.
Kirk to hold gay weddings
The Church of Scotland will conduct legal research to determine how its ministers can hold same-sex weddings in churches. Its General Assembly accepted a report that claimed Scripture was framed by its cultural context. Amendments put forward by supporters of biblical marriage were defeated.
What has happened to all the predictions of doom and gloom that we heard before the referendum?
Before the Brexit vote, we were told that if Britain voted to leave the European Union the pound would go into freefall, the stock market would go wild, house prices would collapse and the economy would never recover.
But what has happened to David Cameron and George Osborne and the others who tried to keep us locked into an unholy marriage with the godless European Union?
Thrilled to hear history in advance: Pastor Clive Owen and his wife Elaine
The pastor who heard this amazing prediction of God’s will for Britain’s membership of the EU AND the exact percentage of the result ten days BEFORE the EU vote told nobody and sealed the words in an envelope to be opened once the result was announced
The Bible says that God knows the end from the beginning, and one pastor’s recent experience shows that God apparently knew not only the EU referendum result ten days before it took place, but the percentage points of the votes that would be cast!
“May Day” was how one of Britain’s top-selling tabloids greeted the announcement of Theresa May as its new Prime Minister.
It was quite appropriate, really, as the country reels from the shock of the referendum vote to leave the European Union. But there is indeed a call for much alarm and ‘dis-may’.
Every day seems to bring some fresh gut-wrenching atrocity or bad news story that fills us with foreboding for the future
The rate of change has never been greater. Yesterday’s news is rapidly overtaken by today’s. From every part of the world there come reports of violence and unrest. Reading a newspaper or watching the television news today should have a health warning for those of a nervous disposition.
