Quote of the Day

"Even though the connections between the party and Anglicanism have now pretty much broken down, it could be argued that the Conservatives are now the Church of England in politics: they are wracked by doubts about their principles and so develop policies built on fashion as much as faith." - Michael Portillo in this week's Sunday Times

Quite. It's difficult to tell whether Portillo makes this statement approvingly or not, but either way it's frighteningly accurate. And of course, so much of the recent unhappy history of both the Conservatives and the C of E can be traced directly to their terror at their own values, and the consequent lack of appeal to faithful and faithless alike.
